New Orleans Sky
The clouds have not been too dense or too frequent this week. We know that New Orleans has its fair share of storms, some of the worst in the world. Along some of the older streets there are live oaks that provide shade, but not so much that you can't see the sky through them. There are streets in the lower 9th where the houses are gone, but the trees are still standing. It makes it look like an old field with those big trees, something you might find further north. The concrete pads buried in the underbrush suggest otherwise. And, then there's the occasional boat by the side of the road. From time to time, it's a bit like science fiction.
