    Katrina destroyed our watercraft and heavily damaged our home on Lake Pontchartrain. Once restored we sold and moved to Baton Rouge some 85 miles to higher ground in an effort never to see Wild Hogs that had been blown in from "somewhere" eating rotten food from the tossed out refrigerators in our front yard nor to see my entire house filled with sick Water Moccasins. Many people lived in their cars for a while, we were fortunate to be able to live on our boat tied in the backyard boat house. Her name was Akula...meaning Shark...and it took a shark to make it through Katrina and still remain afloat. thank you for your poetry....

    Great poem, Cyndi! You won this challenging contest with a good one. My brother and I drove down as soon as Katrina hit with lots of water and a boat. We worked for a week. I'll never forget it. My town was flooded in 2011 and I wrote a poem about it called 'The Flood of 2011'. What you've written here hits home to me.

    As one one who lives on the Northshore of the lake, I can identify with this gem you have written, Cyndi...I went thru Katrina and drove down to NO many times after for business purposes...they damage was indescribable,,,Actually, the MS coast got the worst of it...30 ft tidal surge...shortly after we went to visit our old neighborhood in Biloxi and it took an hour to find our house (only an empty lot)...nothing left but Fima trailers...we cried...

    Okay, I gotta say this was the most difficult challenge I've ever completed here on the soup. It feels like I've self-flaggated myself. Honest... this took two days! I am glad I tried this ... but I doubt I will ever again write this way. It was like trying to walk a tight rope blindfolded, your ankles tied and in a windstorm. Holy crapola! Hey, if anyone sees a con/vow out of place, please let me know so I can smash my head on a wall and weep. LOL.
