You Know It's De-vacuation Time When. . .

. . .a random selection of cars in a parking lot in Jackson, Miss. outside the delicious Broad Street Bakery and excellent Lemuria Books will find two adjacent vehicles bearing New Orleans bumper stickers.

I heard the justified complaint from some Jackson locals that the highway is packed with "Louisiana tags" (a.k.a. license plates). In fact, the burgundy car pictured above on the left had West Virginia plates, but the declaration of civic pride stuck to the bumper spoke more directly to the city the owner now calls home, an assumption confirmed after a pleasant conversation with said owner about why I was photographing her car.

In New Orleans, we often wear our hearts on our tail ends.
