Flood of 2011 - A Year Later

My family was celebrating Easter in 2011 when the river report came in that soon record levels would be hitting the Delta. It was a strange day. Our nature family, twenty plus, enjoyed the day while recollecting stories in fear that this world that has been carved out along the MS River might not exist.

Now it is a year later and the house is almost complete. Furniture has begun to be moved back in.

This year for spring break I went back home and was able to explore the area. Unfortunately, many house exist as abandoned relics, some still owned by those that still due not have the answers and others now purchased by the government.

Below are some of the pictures I took while exploring the area.
