More Katrina Photos?

This thread is meant to be complimentary to [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29472]Gumbo's "5th Anniversary" thread[/url] about surviving hurricane Katrina five years ago. The story he told is excellent and I don't want to overload the thread with so many Katrina rescue photos that folks with dial up internet access can't load it. I've made all of the photos as small as possible (most are under 200 kb) yet still retain some quality. (click the photo to enlarge)

Cooling their heels!

Sometimes you just have to use what is available.
