A little perspective

My dad sent me the following link that shows a map of the New Orleans flooding overlayed on a map of Boston (great UI).  Being from Boston, this is a particularly relevant scale for me (particularly since I’ve spent a total of only 2 days in New Orleans in my life).  Even if your’re not from the Boston area I think you’ll find the perspective helpful in understanding the true extent of what happened last week.
