For almost a full week, there have been http://www.texansprosale.com/jadeveon-clowney-jersey-c-1_12.html stories of heartbreak and destruction from Hurricane Harvey. Those cause flashbacks for Michael Adams.
"To see places that you're familiar with, I see old clips of Katrina and just places that you frequented that you are just so familiar with, its heartbreaking," said Adams. He owns Blue Orleans in Chattanooga's southside district. The restaurant serves Creole and New Orleans-like cuisine. Around there, they call him Chef Mike.
He evacuated New Orleans to Chattanooga in 2005, just after moving into a new home with his wife and kids. His family stayed with his brother, who was a Chattanooga resident. That was just a few days before Hurricane Katrina devastated the city, killing 1,833 people.
"We all just migrated here to Chattanooga http://www.newjersey1861.com/marshall-newhouse-jersey-c-1_25.html thinking it would be a couple of days," Adams said. "It turned out to be 10 or 12 years."
12 years later, Adams owns and runs a successful restaurant. He told News Channel 9 he decided to never move back to home.
"I had babies" he said. "That was gonna be hard to do."
Adams says he finds it therapeutic to give Chattanoogans a taste of New Orleans culture, and when he feels homesick, he has a routine.
"When I want solace and a little peace or something reminiscent of home," he said. "I come here [to the restaurant] and cook gumbo and that takes me back home."
He hopes people in Houston will eventually feel that same kind of peace, wherever they may be in 10 or 12 years.
Adams says the restaurant first opened on Amnicola Highway in 2006. They later moved to their current spot in 2007. They will celebrate Kent Tekulve Kids Jersey their 10 year anniversary in it's building this October.
