Vicksburg’s business community returning to some normalcy

They were also preparing for a slow-to-non-existent summer tourist season. Nearly three months later, the water has receded, and the bulk of the summer has passed. The results were mixed, with the water’s threat contributing to a bump in business before the bottom fell out in June.
