The Aftermath of Hurricane Isaac in New Orleans

Here in New Orleans, we are by nature a hospitable bunch, but Hurricane Isaac has worn out his welcome.  What was just a category 1 hurricane wreaked more havoc on our City than was originally expected.  Today, after 3 days stuck inside, I was able to get out and take some pictures of my area.  Although we are still without power, my neighborhood was fortunate and I am blessed that we did not receive more damage than we did.  Here are some pictures from my neck of the woods:

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of damage! Hoping your lights are on soon!

  2. WOW so glad you and your family are okay. We are slowly starting to see the rain and winds from it, no where near as bad as y’all in New Orleans.

  3. Scary pictures. I hope lots of people are fortunate enough to be saying, “Well, it could have been worse.”

  4. Very scary. Especially seeing how the tree can be ripped right out of the ground so easily. Glad you are safe. Hang in there.

  5. So hard for me to imagine. Wow!!

  6. That is one thing I wished I would have done after the crazy flooding we had here in June. So sorry to hear that you are still without power. Eeek!

  7. Glad you’re all safe- and hope your power gets back on quickly!

  8. WOW! I am up here in the quiet Pacific Northwest, where my kid’s think tornadoes are make fictional, scare-believe ideas like Moby Dick or and an ice age or something. I tell them just because we don’t have tornadoes, doesn’t mean wicked witch can’t take out house away in a volcano 😉
    Thanks for the post and glad you are all okay!

  9. I was down towards grand isle for Isaac, and I was terrified the entire night. The winds were horrendous, trees were falling everywhere and then it decided to stall out and I thought that night would never end. We only had downed trees and the roof of my porch is gone. My neighbors didn’t fare so well, the whole roof to their house (they had a tin roof) completely fell off and you can see into their living room. I’m glad you were ok though, and i’m glad everything seems to be settling down here and people can finally start to get back to normal.

  10. I’m getting way too complacent when it comes to storms. Thankfully my husband gets me on my toes to get prepared. It’s shocking what a category 1 hurricane can do. So glad that you and your family are safe though.

  11. Hugs, sweetie!! Let me know if we can do anything… just so you know that stupid storm has u-turned on us! We are under flash flood warnings again due to the remains of Isaac. Stupid, stupid, evil storm! 🙁

  12. So scary! I have no idea about the fear you all must have had, I’m glad you are all safe!

  13. Oh my! I know all too well what that type of damage is like. Glad you and your family are all safe. We have certainly seen some insane weather in recent years.
