We asked you to share your memories on our Facebook page, and here are some of the things you told us:
I remember how we had to cook outside on the grill, and people were just coming up asking if they could put their meat and other food on the grill even if they did not know you. It was ironic because a neurosurgeon asked to grill his lamb o...n our grill, and he sat down during the wait and we had a regular conversation. No one status mattered during the aftermath of Katrina, survival was the only thing that mattered. Secondly, the next thing that I remember mostly is how long we waited in line for gas like all day and still didn't get gas at that particular station. We had to go on the side service road behind Wendy's on 49 to get gas at station on that side.
