The Original NOLA

So, I’m back in The Big Easy and it seems to be coming back as well (photos posted here), despite the poor reports in the news.  We’re here to work on the rebuild project of St. Bernard’s Parish (the St. Bernard Project) which works in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity in one of the most damaged sections of the city.  Tonight we go to the orientation to get our assignment for what we’ll be doing–hope that it’s not roofing, it’s just plain hot here (85 degrees-plus last night at 10pm!).

I’ll be keeping up with this in a somewhat ongoing basis this week via this blog, since so many folks have been asking me about it (and an email list seems so 1999).
