Hurricane Katrina

The blog was done a few weeks ago, but I’m resurrecting it for the storm. The “before” pictures are here. The “after” pictures might be awhile. This picture is from a friend of mine; it’s the Camille memorial at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Biloxi. Maybe it won’t become necessary to construct a new memorial. We live in a brick house, in Long Beach, on some of the highest land in Harrison County, which isn’t saying much. A little over two miles from the beach. We’ll have some relatives over, and our sheriff neighbor and his family are riding the storm out in the house next to the house next to us. Misery loves company.

This neighborhood (the older part) came through Camille okay, and we’re hoping for more of the same. Best case, the storm becomes somebody else’s problem, and the “after” pictures look the same as the “before” pictures. That wouldn’t hurt my feelings at all.

Regardless, I’ll update this thing intermittently for as long as the power holds out. Our neighborhood’s power lines are underground, but the same can’t be said for the lines that feed into our neighborhood.

Good times, good times.

    Looks tranquil. What’s with the car in the backyard? Protecting the windows?
