A few years ago, I went with my family on a short mission trip to the area that had been struck by Hurricane Katrina. It was about seven months after that devasting hurricane. One of the things I remember most as we approached New Orleans was how much greater the devastation was, up-close-and-personal.
Although our unusual weather in Wisconsin this year bears no comparison to the severity and destruction of Katrina, I do think you’d have to be here to understand quite how often it has snowed, how much it has snowed, how bad the roads are, and how much distress the trees are in. Did I mention how often it snows?
These pictures are from our yard–a yard I expect to see a lot of, since I’m not planning to drive anytime soon.
