laviederose This was my desktop background for the longest time after #hurricanekatrina. Ten years ago, I woke up at around eight a.m. and turned on the news. I was curious about the little hurricane no one around me seemed too concerned about. Turns out that this little hurricane became a monster and as I watched her slam into New Orleans... the power went out, and I knew that I was in serious trouble. The little hurricane that didn't seem so serious a few days ago took great offense and ended up destroying everything in her path. I was going to university in a little city called Hattiesburg which, despite being 70-ish miles from the Gulf Coast, was one of the heaviest hit inland cities. There are two things I kick myself over to this day: 1) that I didn't go out and document more devastation after the storm and 2) that I didn't leave Hattiesburg before Katrina hit. I still have chills thinking about that bizarre time and the misery that went on in Louisiana and Mississippi. The complete helplessness is what I remember the most. That and crying over the images broadcast over a tiny, battery-operated TV. #katrina10 6d

@meetgarfi: 4th of July, no Labor Day, no Memorial Day. Nothing. It’s just August, and I already hate it.
