Scenes

Image hosted by Photobucket.com This was taken yesterday while I was stopped in traffic on Pass Road. A similar picture had been featured in the SunHerald a couple of weeks ago. Apparently the US flag that is draped around the statue of Jesus was put there by Katrina.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com I took this picture back in May to send to some of the men and women I send packages to via Books for Soldiers.


Image hosted by Photobucket.com This is not quite the same angle, for when I took the before picture back in May, I was standing on the dock at Gollott's seafood. But you can see some of the devastation. Notice how dirty the water is. That is from all the debris. The trees in the background are live oaks. The leaves on live oaks usually remain green year round. In keeping with my policy of not showing the destruction of neighbors homes, you will not see the total destruction of the five houses that were to the right of this photo. There is nothing but slab left of those homes. I believe everyone evacuated before the storm. The boats must have been sent to safe harbor before the storm.

Wow. As much as we may complain on occasion about the polar extremes of the summer/winter weather here in New England, we never see anything like what you had to go through down there.

I especially like the photo of Jesus with the flag.

At least the water level seems to be almost at the "normal" level (so it appears from your pics).

felis,

Most of the damage we had in Mississippi was from the storm surge that is now estimated to have been 30-40 feet and the water levels went down to normal almost as soon as the storm passed. Unlike New Orleans, we are above sea level.
