More Katrina

I know I'm writing about other things, and will probably write fanfic later (there's just no mental place to put thinking about this), but I keep going to the news pages and looking at things, and... G-d. U.S. 10 over Lake Pontchartrain (I think) collapsed. I'm pretty sure we were on that highway in May when I was down at the Gulf coast, and went from Biloxi to New Orleans with danaedark and our friend J. Now it's all under water, pretty much the whole route and most of where we spent the day.

I have faith that the Corps of Engineers will work something out and they'll be able to get the city pumped out and the levees rebuilt--preferably higher--but the devastation that's already occurred... it's catastrophic.
