While researching the demolition procedure we have been watching the permits as the applications come in. This one application brought back a lot of recent Post Katrina memories.

Ellen Montgomery became a local legend when she stayed after the storm and continued to care for her cats and paint. Chris Rose wrote this article about “her.”:http://www.nola.com/rose/t-p/index.ssf?/base/living-0/116512867963000.xml&coll=1&thispage=1
Then her unfortunate demise.
Here she is after the storm in her unflooded home.
