With only the exception of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Hurricane Katrina was the next deadliest event in half a century of United States history. In the wake of Katrina and many other major meteorological events of the past decade, our society is rethinking the infrastructural, cultural, social, political, and historical implications of its relationship to weather. In a series of essays that reconsiders specific weather events from history and recent times, this project examines the problems that weather poses, not only on the regional or metropolitan scale, but also on the personal scale. I am concerned not only how disasters test our social fabric, but also how our engagement with weather helps to frame our everyday experience.With only the exception of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Hurricane Katrina was the next deadliest event in half a century of United States history.
