New Orleans in Exile

Life Without Buildings has evacuated to Houston, and it looks like it’s going to be an extended stay. New Orleans doesn’t have any power or phones or plumbing or roads…or anything really. Right now, I’m sad to say it looks like things aren’t really getting any better and I’m hearing that it’ll be at least a week before I can return. Rest assured though, my family in Houston has been incredible and my extravagant southern lifestyle has continued with only a brief interuption.

My fellow refugees and I have taken this opportunity to see the Rothko Chapel, Inversion, and we made our first trip to an IKEA. Eventually, I hope to post a few images from the trip. So far, all things have been amazing, and now we’re considering continuing our journey west.

We have some time on our hands.

If anyone from the Gulf Coast is reading this, I hope you’re well. Be safe, and take your time heading back.

Posting, obviously, will be sparse to non existent for quite some time…
