This is a 2nd post of our trip..The order will be mixed up if you haven't looked at the other photo's. Oh well..

This is a church/recovery center that we worked to help clean out can see the mold up the walls!. Mike is carrying the cross out of the building to be tossed out.

Here is my team of gals...(starting on the right) Liz, Me, Sandy, Dotti and Lena after a hard day of work..

Here is all of us in our has-mat suits..We so cute :) By the way in this house Mike took out the remains of the home owners dog. Also the home owners mom and dad. They were in a vase and a base of a lamp!

Here you can see that everything in her home was turned to mush...You can see in the photo to the left a water line on the wall.(to the far right of the picture)

Guys in the hood..Real tough looken' :)

Can you see the size of that tree on top of the house!!! The dark photo is a church that is in an area that is still closed to the public area received over 20 feet of water. The next picture is the water line above the exit sign in an industrial building.

Here in the same complex is a dry cleaners who windows were blown out and it looked like a ghost town. The white in the sign is the waterline. This was so weird to see the clothes just hanging on the line and still in the washers..

These photo are some of the areas of Miss. This used to be upscale condo's. Nothing in this area has not been cleaned up and no one has been back. There were some toilets still in the ground :) When we walked through the rubble the only thing we could find that looked like life was things like light switch plates,dishes and small trinkets. This area was hit by a 30 foot title wave.

This bridge is completely destroyed and buckled..

Yet in all this there is still HOPE

House to Vote on Political Blogging Rules
Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling's Online Freedom of Speech Act would relieve political bloggers from any provisions of campaign finance laws, no matter the blogger's financial connection to a campaign.
