To all those people who hear that the city of New Orleans is being rebuilt successfully:



At least not yet.

Sure, parts of the city were relatively unscathed and some other areas are indeed coming back. But the majority of the city was flooded. The majority of it was damaged.

Funny how things get distorted. An "official report" states that my house got only 2 - 3 feet of water.


I was there on August 29, 2005 and can personally dispute that. See my pics taken during Hurricane Katrina at

That's way way more than 2 - 3 feet. Try 8 - 9 feet.

Yes, some areas are getting gas and electricity, but mostly for fema trailer hookups and businesses. And some previously damaged sections now have stores and banks and gas stations. Some.

Some parts. Some businesses.

However, many of the citizens, like us, did NOT have flood insurance. And we, like they, can't afford what it now costs to gut and rebuild our homes. Even if you can get a legitimate contractor. Even if they show up.

Please, spread the word. The TRUTH. All is NOT well. We are NOT okay. We are coming along. But very SLOWLY. It's not rebuilding quickly. We have a very long, very rough road ahead. We still need help. Lots of it. And prayers. Plenty of prayers.

Thank you and have a nice day.

You may now resume your regularly scheduled programming.

    Perhaps they were measuring from the top of the roof to the water line....

    Man... that's a good one, I wish I had thought of that.

    Thanks for stopping by.
