1 year ago today, life was normal. My friends were all still friends. The Superdome was still intact. My favorite city in the world was whole. The Mississippi Gulf Coast was beautiful and filled with grand, extravagant homes and businesses. Rob was here, we all went shopping for our "hurricane supplies," including chocolate covered macadamia nuts, tons of Doritos, and soda. My roof didn't have a hole in it. We were all watching the hurricane coverage like we watched all other hurricane coverage, knowing that any second now, it'd be downgraded to a tropical storm and barely tickle the coast.
1 year ago today was a more innocent time.
