These pictures are pretty old now (circa April 23, 2006), but I thought I would make you look at them anyway.
Here we are, bummed that they postponed the Mardi Gras parade due to the threat of rain. Note the clearly defined shadows due to the sunshine in the later pictures.
Apparently, the parade officials are number 1 in Mike's book.
Zac looks longingly at the parade route, dreaming of what might have been...
Some left-over flood water caught in the double paned window in, what used to be, Mike's house.
Some of the destruction seen in the Lower 9th Ward. Keep in mind these pictures were taken about 8 months after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.
