New Orleans Katrina Clean Up Day Four

I didn't get to post yesterday, so doing a quick update on Day Four. It can be summed up rather easily.


We bedded down the night before, and awoke to the sound of rain and thunder. The rain intensified several time and was mostly unrelenting. Torrential, maybe at times.

Since I have my trusty ol' computer here, I scoped out the satellite view. I should have saved that to show you.

The entire US was pretty much clear. This very large orange-red blob was covering the entire lower portion of Louisianna.

So - by 9:30 am we got official word from the camp officials that work was off. It was actually clearing in the western sky at that time - still, the sites would have been too dangerous with all the water on the ground.

So, we rounded up and headed into New Orleans for some sight seeing. Had some good food - muffalettas and po'boys and such. Also coffee and doughnuts (beignets). Maybe a beer or two, I don't recall...

Anyway, we were back on camp ground well before curfew, and tucked in for Thursday's effort.
