After the latest storm finally left the area I got out on the streets and started looking for — well, whatever. In Orleans Parish, there was plenty of what I would call non-picture making storm damage. You know. Trees up rooted and broken, downed power lines, torn up signs, bits of damage to houses. That sort of thing. But, nothing very dramatic. Thankfully. What I didn’t know at the time was the real issue a lack of electrical power. This would plague some of us for days. Others still don’t have power. Eventually I made my way to the Holy Cross area of The Ninth Ward, a place which was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. I found these abandoned houses. They were left to rot after what we call “the storm.” Now, they been through five storms of varying intensity.
