2 Very Different Views of Canal Street


12/25/04 - Canal St. - New Orleans

It's hard to believe that both of these images are of the same street. One so festive with the Christmas lights and snow. One so nightmarish with the floodwaters. And it's hard to believe these events happened less than a year apart.

Man, that's so sad.

What about any pictures from December? How has it cleaned up?

Peace,

It's been cleaned up pretty well. Businesses are are slowly coming back but not anywhere close to pre-Katrina normalcy. If I find a recent pic, I'll post it, too.

I still can't wrap my mind around all that's happened since August and the state of things now. Whatever you want to call it-time warp, alternative universe, mind fuck-I feel disjointed most days. But it's definitely getting better here.

Wow, that's heartbreaking. New Orleans was on my list of places I want to visit when I win the lottery. I guess it will be a different place then.

It is different. We will be different. I just read this over in neworleans and it's the attitude of many who are back to stay and rebuild. "...this city is gonna come back like ain't no one ever seen bef'o, cuz it was built on love and respect and thats what all of you and tonight is all about... love and respect... LOVE AND RESPECT, NEW ORLEANS."
