Katrina August 29, 2005
Views from the car while driving around both
the East and West Bank of New Orleans.
In the beginning, all vehicles had to be decontaminated after driving over where it was still wet. This firehouse on Woodland Hwy on the West Bank hosed and scrubbed the vehicles from the top to bottom as they came back from duty on the other side of the river. Fire trucks, ambulances, and others were required to go through decon before entering their home for the night, as the sign said.
This unbroken light bulb was found in the back of Scott's yard on Huntlee Drive in New Orleans on the West Bank.
Before the storm, that same light bulb was screwed into the following socket. No one knows for sure how it came unscrewed and landed around the back side of the house in the grass.
Notice the filament is not broken. The paint spots are on the right side of the bulb in this picture.
And it still works! Those spots are paint from when the house was painted ages ago.
We screwed it into a socket inside the house just to test it.
