Here's the first house that DH and I rented years ago when we first met. It was a cute little neighborhood near the university in those days, with lots of retirees as well as young people. We had a goose in the backyard and a couple of chickens that laid brown eggs, but some folks in the neighborhood had entire flocks. One day we heard a squawk and looked up and saw a pair of Nanday conures flying into a tree on our front lawn, and that's how we found out that there were wild parrots in the neighborhood.

At first glance, it doesn't look too bad, although since it was located in the devastated Gentilly area not too far from the London Avenue Canal floodwall, it had to be searched for people and pets.

Now take a closer look at the roof. It was completely underwater. If I read the markings correctly, there was no one trying to ride out the storm in the attic, but if they had been, they could not have survived. Even some of the terracotta tiles were floated off the roof.
