Today — on the second anniversary of hurricane Katrina — our sister site Blogging New Orleans is hosting a day-long blogothon with posts every hour detailing the ongoing rebuilding process. New Orleans has always been like a second home to me. I’ve been visiting the Big Easy at least once a year every year since 2000, and the devastating floods that ripped apart the city two years ago remain a vivid and horrifying memory even today. I can only imagine what it must have been like for those who actually lived through the disaster. Here are some interesting posts from Blogging New Orleans two-year anniversary coverage:
- Mike asks, How far behind are we, really? “At Katrina+5 will the rebuild/tear down be complete? When those levee systems are ‘finished’ and I feel safe enough to think about buying house in this city, will that be the end of the recovery?”
- Watch the pilot for K-Ville online, right here, right now — Check out the pilot episode for Fox’s new cop drama set in New Orleans.
- NOLAvid: Going Back to New Orleans by Deacon John via AOL True Stories — Tonight on MyNetwork TV (formally UPN54 in New Orleans) you can watch the HD Documentary ‘Going Back to New Orleans’ at 8:00 PM EST. This movie tells the stories of various New Orleans musicians and their return to the city they love after Katrina from the point of view of Deacon John.
