Chased by hurricane Katrina

The news that a massive hurricane was headed straight for us, struck fear into our bodies. The journey evacuating from Katrina consisted of a 25 hour drive to Georgia. We spent 6 months in Georgia where i went to school and stayed at my grandparents house. At our home in Metairie, we got three feet of water in our first floor and all our house being torn apart. I smashed at the moldy sheetrock and shingles to help, and after a year our house was close to normal. This hurricane started our lives over in a new state.
