It looks as though New Orleans will be saved. At least the French Quarter will be; the northern end of the city, just south of Lake Pontchartrain, will probably be a bit wet for quite some time.

Sifting through the archives, it looks like I've written about New Orleans twice. Once, apocalyptically. Later, triumphantly.
What will happen.
