Hurricane Camille: 39 Years Ago

Today is the 39th anniversary of Hurricane Camille. Three years ago, I this post about Camille. It's hard to believe that when I wrote it, Hurricane Katrina was just a blob of thunderstorms in the Atlantic and 12 days later would destroy much of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

We rebuilt after Hurricane Camille. It took almost 20 years. We are rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina. The pace seems maddening at times. It isn't going to take 20 years this time. Most of the rebuilding should be completed within the next 5 - 7 years.
