Rita just won't leave us

A reminder on Fourth Street in Beaumont, Texas, that mean Miss Rita came calling.

You kind of get used to roofers everywhere and the still present blue FEMA tarps covering the roofs the roofers have yet to fix. But outright signs that Hurricane Rita hit here almost six months ago are not as easy to find these days. Walking just down the street from where I used to live on Fourth Street, I saw this house on which a huge tree still rests. If we could be anthropomorphic for a second with this house, it would seem to say: “Fix me please. I do so want this big tree off of me!” This would be followed by a low, mournful groan.

It’s not easy getting over a hurricane.
