Finally I found some information on Blaine Kern's Warehouse. This is where the bulk of the Mardi Gras floats in New Orleans are built. It is in Algiers which was not flooded and recieved little damage. That means with some repairs needed the floats are ready to go it the city is in February.

I thought this was a unique idea. I hope he reaches his goal.
Let me start by saying that people on the Gulf Coast are all connected. We are all so much alike with few interesting differences. I have traveled to every state in the continental US and have never met anybody that I connect with on that level other than others that lived along the Gulf Coast. New Orleans, LA and Mobile, AL are two of the oldest cities in the US. Mobile celebrated its' 300th birthday last year and New Orleans should celebrate theirs in a few more from now. We are all family.
Well things are slowly beginning to get back to normal now. My office got power back last night so we will be working all weekend and Labor day to try and get caught up. I hope that when Mobile gets back up and running we can offer more help to the harder hit areas.
Dauphin Island which is in Mobile County about 35-40 miles from where I live. It got hit really hard and many people lost their houses as they were ripped apart or just floated away into the ocean. Their were places where there was 1 or 2 houses and then the next 10-14 were gone. The ones that were left were in complete devistation. These pictures come from www.al.com.
