Rain. It’s been raining on and off for the past week. Mostly on. The wet stuff got in the way of The French Quarter Fest, the brand new Indy Series race and the Ponchatula Strawberry Festival. If weather predictions are correct — yeah, yeah, when are they ever right — we should have rain on every day until at least Sunday. Some say until Tuesday. Not today. Next Tuesday.
I’m doing the only thing possible. I’m publishing a picture I made during the last half-sunny half-cloudy day. I took this in the Desire neighborhood of the 9th Ward. See? Even in partially destroyed, half abandoned neighborhoods, there is still a little of nature’s beauty to be found.
