A stop for gas in Georgia after driving through the rain of tropical storm Tammy.
Cathy's car is loaded too.
Soon I'll need a can opener to get in!
Our luxurious digs in Atlanta. Thank you Kathy Kleeman for opening your home to two weary strangers.
All we had to do was plug in the coffee pot in the morning and there were fresh muffins for our journey! Yummy.
A peek into the bedroom.
The most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Cathy felt the same way.
View across from the bed.
The start of the damage from Katrina. We're 100 miles inland in Mississippi.
Trees broken like toothpics.
Much has been cleaned up already.
You can see the National Guard on the road.
I loved seeing the flowers growing in the median strip.
This kept on for miles and got worse the further south you went.
The tops of the trees didn't fare much better here.
Not much traffic on I-59 at rush hour. We're very close to the Louisiana border.
Lots of clean up happened here.
The road crew was busy here too.
I couldn't believe my eyes in southern Mississippi. A $250 hiring bonus for Hardees!! Click on the pic to enlarge. It's the black and white sign near the bottom of the pole.
The beginning of the damage entering into Louisiana.
This went on for miles and miles.
Along Route 11 with Lake Pontchartrain behind what's left of this house. A taste of what is to come.
First rescued dog I met when we arrived. I saw so many that looked like this my first walk through the kennel, I went to my car, called Lenny and cried. I didn't think I could this!
My 'new' home thanks to my daughter and son in law. They also loaned me an air mattress. Very posh!
The Winn Dixie site looking left from my front door. The dog kennels are under the blue & white big top.
Another view. The pigeons were always lined up on the building looking for spilled food and scraps.
The US Marshals come to vist in their pickup. Wonderful and caring men! Note the two cat traps by Cathy's Car.
