    I stayed throught the hurricane, i left a few days after it was over, there was no electric or  water , nothing open etc...
    but i came back in about a week.
    i live in Kenner, just on the 0outskirts of New Orleans.
    i had bought 2 rental proerties just before it hit.
    1 in New Orleans East,
    1 in the lower 9th ward.
    (2 of the worst hit areas)
    not -so lucky for me, i didnt have time to get insurance on them, i used cash i had saved.
    the rest against the house i live in.

    since it wasnt my primary residence, FEMA wont do a thing for me.
    i am waiting for another program to come through, but dont know how much it will help.

    Well, not here to complain, al least, not just about myself.

    What i find absolutely amazing, is that there are still areas that look like it happened yesterday.
