The free water, ice and food pickup spot was at the Sams club on Airline. The Oklahoma National Guard were loading trucks.

The food given away was mostly MREs(Meals ready to eat) I was expecting something like c-rations, but the meals were really good. You put the food in a bag with small bag of magnesium something or other and add water. it reacts and heats the food, enough to burn your hand if you grab it too quickly.

 

There were lots of wild birds waiting for me when I arrived home, about a hundred came out when I put out seed including these noisy assed parrots. I ran out of food so I went to Jefferson feed on Jefferson Hwy.

Jeff  Feed had become a drop off location for animals (It's not now, so don't take animals there) so I volunteered to help. I thought I would be leaving cat food in dishes in front of houses in Jefferson Parish. Turns out they needed me to go into New Orleans.

 

Checkpoint to enter New Orleans. I needed a special pass to enter.

I was packing heat the first day I went in, didn't know what to expect. the city was strangley quiet, very few people except police and Nat guard. Probably one of the safest places in America now. this is a shop close to Lee Circle on St. Charles

Happy campers from 4505 Magazine and 6th St. Very hard to catch cats, they weren't falling for the tuna can in the carrier trick. Cats were in good shape.

The black dog was killed by coyotes on the levee in 2009, not far from where this photo was taken.
