Post-Katrina Explorations: The Upper 9th Ward, cont'd
Continuing where we left off...

Nothing seemed to come to rest in the right spot.  That car probably wasn't parked like that, and I'm pretty sure they didn't build that light green house in the middle of the street.

Pushing the concept of "covered parking" to new extremes.

With all the wind damage to rooftops, one might interpret this as something of a comb-over.

Yes, that's a boat and a trailer hitch draped over the fence next to it.

This house ended up swept into the street.  This happened a lot, then the city was left with the dilemma of whether they could (or should) knock down an impediment to traffic that represented what was the entirety of someone's possessions (waterlogged though they may be).

In this case they went ahead and did it.

Just next to the partially demolished house was this pile of debris that appeared to have been swept in by moving water.  (Well, it looked more like that in person than in just this image.)

Some more evidence of serious current moving through here.
