This chapter begins with the author’s account of how she left New Orleans after moving there just a week before residents were asked to evacuate in preparation for Hurricane Katrina. She says that Katrina was more of a non-experience than a real experience, because she was not in New Orleans when it hit. She describes how the Surviving Katrina and Rita in Houston project gave her a reason to connect with a network of fellow survivors, and experience Katrina vicariously through these stories and these relationships. She also recounts an interview with survivors Henry Armstrong and his mother, Dorothy Griffin.
