I was pretty hung over on Thursday, Oct.3rd. Luckily we had stocked up on aspirin.

When I made it out of the house to survey hurricane damage, things looked shaken, but not destroyed.

These tree branches in the French Quarter had broken.
Many businesses were closed on Thursday in anticipation of the damage and hazard of working in hurricane weather.
A custom-fit window-board tells the hurricane history of the French Quarter.
The riverfront was dry and clean, but still being hit by high winds.
Still on the riverfront, this juvenile tree didn't make it.

On Friday morning tourism rose from the dead.
Wendy and I drove around the Park District. We stopped to eat at the Bluebird Cafe.

Here is the gate into Audubon Place

Loyola University. Not far from Tulane University.
This was the greatest example of damage I saw first-hand. This tree smacked into a house, killing the rain gutters.
Wet streets in front of an old store.
The view from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. On my way back to Sacramento.

I was going to call Steve and Elise to give me a ride home from the airport, but Alicia Relles was on board the same flight as me, so I got a ride home with her! Excellent!

Whoo! The trip was pretty exciting. My first trip to the south. I'm sure it won't be the last. Thanks to Wendy for inviting me.

Thanks also to Mike Taylor, Christine Zardecki and others who mailed suggested activities and photo-ops. Shawn Castrillo, sorry I didn't hook up with you, things got pretty wacky at the end of the trip.
