Does This Track Look Familiar?
I'm doing a little writing project for my job, and in the course of it I stumbled into info about the Hurricane of 1901 that hit New Orleans and southeast Louisiana. It breached levees in the city and inundated St. Bernard and Plaquemines.
Here's a map of the track, which looks awfully familiar.
Those people, our ancestors, fought their way through that one. They didn't have bulldozers, air conditioning, Microsoft Excel. We can do this.
