This sweater is a happy reminder to all of those in the Gulf that we are wrapping up Hurricane Season without a SINGLE major evacuation in 2009. It is also, significantly, the end of my 10Th year of marriage (I was married on the day of Hurricane Georges...the only other mandatory evacuation of New Orleans other than Katrina in modern history). I have elected to celebrate the end of the season, with a child's sweater, bearing the international symbol of the hurricane. If you knew my third son, you would understand why the symbol is particularly appropriate worn on his precious chest. Here's to all you survivors...of New Orleans... of Hurricanes...of children.
