Wordless Wednesday ~ truly no words


Thursday, September 02, 2021


 Just a short note to say we are back home.  Everything is knocked out.  No electricity. No running water. Estimated return 5 weeks due to the catastrophic damage. No water is harder than no power.  Cell towers collapsed, so service is intermittent. Everything is closed.  3 hour line for gas and people are traveling 2 hrs to find gas. There’s no medical services because the hospital lost its roof. School is closed indefinitely. I feel like I’m living in a third world country. 

Unfortunately my home received significant damage, but we are better off than most.  My roof lost a lot of shingles and was stripped to the plywood. Gallons of water poured onto my bed.  Somehow my ceiling has not caved in -yet. Water spots on the ceiling of every room. Fence is gone, siding damage, mailbox damaged…

You can search YouTube for hurricane ida, Houma, lafourche Parish to see some of what happened here.  

I’m so glad we left.  

I had service for a few minutes so I wanted to update you all.
