The “Interdictor” has been posting photos from downtown New Orleans since before the storm hit. Here’s today’s archive.

This shot caught my eye. If you look at the top center of the frame, you can see the old sign for Werlein’s Music. I bought my first guitar there on New Year’s Eve of 1987. The store has since moved off of Canal Street (there wouldn’t be anything lighter than a grand piano left there today if they hadn’t), but the sign stayed up.
