Snapshots from Rita Land

For your viewing pleasure here are some photos I took upon returning home to Beaumont, Texas, after having evacuated for Hurricane Rita.

It may be awhile before I buy gas again at the neighborhood convenience store.

I believe this is — was — a beauty shop just up the next street from my place.

Blue tarps such as this one on a home that serves as a lawyer’s office, just across my neighbor’s yard from me, are all the rage these days.

Very succinct. But it doesn’t really do much for those looters who can’t read.

This was my perspective on North Street, the street on which I live, as I returned home for the first time. The poles are really a metaphor for what life has been like here recently.

If you don’t keep your sense of humor, the terrorists, ah, hurricanes, have won.
