The hurricane has always been a drink I associate with New Orleans. I've been knocked out more than once by the drink in NOLA - as some who know me will attest to! But now New Orleans, and a large chunck of the surrouding area, has been devestated by another hurricane. The devestation is, frankly a bit beyond my comprehension - I've never lived in or seen at 1st hand a city 80% under water.
The relief operation is going to take a very long time and a LOT of money. So if you haven't already, consider donating to the relief efforts. If you blog - add a banner to your blog (just go to the Red Cross Site and download one.
