Today is the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Although New Orleans was destroyed by levee failure, across Lake Pontchartain where we live was destroyed by Katrina herself who painted a target on our house and hit it dead center.
We evacuated the day before she hit and returned 2 weeks later.
We left our house like this:
And returned to this:
140 trees removed and one bulldozer later, the lot was bare and soon after sold. We won the insurance company battle, bought another house and NOW we have an RV and will not have months of homelessness if Katrina's sister decides to pay a visit.
