when was the last time you seen these gas prices...

...I took this picture yesterday in New Orleans.  One of the gas stations that maybe closed right before the hurricane.  Not sure.

 The visit was great, took the kids to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas (it has recently re-opened) it was great!  

As a parent I could not imagine what the people of New Orleans went through (are still going thur) during and after the storm.   I saw so many houses abandoned, FEMA trailers in the drive ways of families who are rebuilding.  But here is the question...why go back?  I love where I live here in Texas, I think it's the best place to live in the US.  But if something terrible happened similar to what happened in New Orleans - I don't think I would be willing to return.  Do you think people stayed because of family?  Because they love it just as much as I love it here?  I don't know...the good thing is...lots of stores and resturants are now re-opening.  Most of the places we went to visit had grand opening signs.  Just a thought...
