This segment comes from the Waveland Drug Store, about 0.25 miles away from my parents’ house.  It withstood Camille (the Cat 5 that hit in ’69), so the photo gives you an inkling into just how strong Katrina really was.  Yeah, it has changed hands in the past year or so, but it’s still the Waveland Drug Store to me.  I’ll have to scan in photos of what Waveland used to look like.

And now Rita has hit Category 5 strength.  Oh boy…
