Cleaning up
FEMA trailer with limousine in front.
The home owner must drive it for a living and it is safer at his home than elsewhere. There were 4 FEMA trailers on this block and this side of the river did not flood. It was all wind damage.
Part of regaining our sanity is putting up decorations. Just a couple of weeks later, the trailer is decorated for Christmas.
This goose appeared on a doorstep on Harrison Ave near Lakeview.
This house burned a few days after power was restored. A tree had fallen on the back side of the house. The only PODS they could get must have been in a flooded area during the storm. These storage containers are showing up everywhere.
This very exclusive and expensive apartment complex is right on the banks of Bayou St. John. This bayou did NOT flood, possibly because it has locks at Lake Pontchatrain. The complex flooded because the levees from other canals which do not have locks at Lake Pontchatrain failed.
The whole first floor had to be gutted.
Some people who had to have storage in their front yards while they fixed their houses, decorated the units. This one was in Park Timbers on the West Bank.
This house was at 4319 Perlita 70122. There was had about 4 or 5 feet of water in the home. All the first floor wiring will have to be replaced along with the dry wall. This house was finally gutted December 29, 2005 and much of the wood close to the ground was still a little wet. Click on the picture for a picture of the owner. A Methodist church on the West Bank helped him gut the home. It looked like the neighbors on either side had not come back to New Orleans yet and their furniture, refrigerator, carpet, walls, etc. were still in their homes.
