New Orleans from Space

Like many of you, I've been glued to the TV, watching the horrific aftermath of Katrina.

I was aghast after seeing this remarkable satellite image of The Mississippi Delta. New Orleans has nearly faded into the blue of Lake Pontchartrain.

On another note, this blog is one family's struggle to make sense of it all after fleeing their home in Slidell, just north of the Big Easy.

Here's one excerpt that caught my eye:

"One man at the Superdome committed suicide by throwing himself over a 2nd floor balcony after warning the people below to "watch out" and then calmly leaping to his death."

Scary stuff.

My heart goes out to all affected by this terrible ordeal.
