This car ended up under a house. Or the house ended up on top of the car:
One unexpected thing I saw was a tent city set up in the parking lot of a strip mall, mixed in with truck trailers. I didn't get a good pic but there was one "tent" that consisted of a camper top from like an F150 stacked on top of some debris. It seemed like people are actually living here:
Last night I went to the Garden District which seemed pretty much intact. The touchdown Jesus at Loyola is one of my favorite NOLA landmarks:
I know I said it yesterday, but it's hard to apreciate the full extent of what Katrina did to NOLA in the French Quarter/ CDB area. If at all possible go just a little ways outside the convention area and take a look. And donate to some of the relief funds present at the conference.
