Foto Friday #15 Broken

In 2008 Hurricane Gustav hit Louisiana and left a a path of destruction. 
Maybe not as bad as Katrina, but for some of my family and friends it was
pretty horrible. We were very lucky, only without power three days. 
I could have shown a much worse picture of things broken 
from the storm, Gustav or Katrina.
But I thought I would show you what was left of our flag after that storm blew through.
You can say it's broken, but we are not. Another one hangs in its place.

Great photo! Hurricanes are so devastating, but it is great when you see a community rebuild.
We had the worst hurricane damage to our home when I was pregnant...went in for a c-section, as it was a very high risk pregnancy, and was prepped for a c-section and they came in and said they did not have enough back up generator power to do the surgery or to care for a high risk little one so they sent me home! That night, Hurricane Isabel hit out home and we had two trees crash through the roof of our home. Luckily, my son stayed put while the aftermath took place and the clean up began and I had him the next week.
So, can really relate to your photo on many levels.

Lori, Thank you for mentioning / retweeting various posts for me, @F5th, on Twitter. One funny thing though, for some reason, it does not show that you follow me, even though you retweet some of my posts. Know that this happens that sometimes, Twitter unfollows people so just FYI and hope that you will follow me. I had also contacted Bern from Mom to 2 posh Lil Divas, as it was not showing in my Twitter feed when I would retweet for the Crafty Mamas tribe. Am just going to do my own retweets for both of you until we can figure out what is up with that:)
Have a happy weekend, Lori! Love your blog and added your button to my scrolling blogroll at Sunrise Learning Lab.
