Massive Trees

This second go around volunteering after Christmas has been all about tree removal. Massive trees fell in so many yards, forests completely demolished with "hangers" left everywhere. The tree job today was THE biggest. The truck measuring 60" across had massive limbs going in all directions. It was a whole days job for a crew of 8 to cut this up and haul it off!

Lunch Break

The most enjoyable part of the day is taking a lunch break with the home owners. If we end up at a property all day we stop for lunch and most of the time the owners love to come out and talk. We ask them their story. Maybe is their story about being in a hurricane, maybe it’s their past, how they came to live in their house, things they have been through. So many of them are elderly people who live alone. Many have recently lost their spouse right before or after the hurricane. The storms of life are many.

Dragging More Brush

When we arrive at a property there is always a moment of shock and being overwhelmed. Where do start, what exactly are we working on. One could spent a week at each place with a full team and not really get everything back to normal. The team lead decides what is in our scope and we dive in, one step at a time. Lots of the time it involves dragging pile after pile of brush to the curb. In this yard it was the back that looked like a disaster zone so we hauled it from the back, across the yard to the ditch.

More Shocking Sites

We have returned to the church after our week camping outside of New Orleans feeling a little refreshed and ready to go back to our second go around with disaster relief. Never was it in our plans to end up in Louisiana (cold) Louisiana for a 6 week stay. But these locals are so warm and appreciative one cannot stay away.

Tarot Readings

Hhhmmmm never knew New Orleans was so into what I would call a darkness. Lots of tarot card readings going on as well as voodoo shops and grave yard tours.... very interesting influence here.

More Musicians

I just loved the jazz heard around town. I used to work at a Jazz club so it was a real delight to be here and find out the music was going whether it be a full band, some children drumming or a lone saxophone player.
