Katrina August 29, 2005
This house belongs to a friend of mine. This house is near Mandeville St. and Mirabeau Ave. It is a raised house with 3 foot piers underneath. The water came up to just over the window sills. There was a water line in the garage at about 8 feet, just out of reach of my out-stretched arms. Her refrigerator and freezer floated around her kitchen and the refrigerator landed upside down. The mold was actually pretty in some places. That is someone elses garage door stuck on her fence.
Someone else's garage door was on her fence.
All that good networking gone to waste.
Even the fan blades drooped in the moisture laden heat.
The bottom of the door is bleached where the water stood for weeks.
Mold in the closet.
Beautiful multicolored mold.
The wooden table drooped in the water.
The wooden floors buckled.
Mold by the thermostat.
We want to go back and eat here. They said they will remodel and reopen as soon as they can.
Other of our favorite eating places.

There is another water line about a foot or so above the dark one. Hurricane Rita mostly washed off the highest water line.
