<p />yes, this is my uncles place in Slidell, right off of Lake Pontchatrain. Under the big yellow arrow is his big green egg. It was lying on its side, excepting for a cracked firebox that may had already been, not even a scratch. Priceless.


  • YEEPEE !!! another Languiypee :woohoo:

    reall happy for ya
  • Chef Wil,
    Truly incredible!!! Hope your uncle & family remained safe through it all. Well wishes for their recovery & rebuild. Joe

  • Chef Wil,
    Man, what a terrible picture of devastation. Breaks my heart.

  • Chef Wil,
    That is an amazing picture. In all of that destruction it looks as most of your windows remained in one peice. I hope you are back to normal as soon as possible!

  • Chef Wil,[p]How eggscellent!
    thanks for sharing. Looks like a repair party; bring hammers, saws, ribs!

  • Chef Wil,[p]That's amazing. It looks like that house was built on a pier & beam system to specifically allow for flooding.[p]I hope all goes well in the rebuilding and that everyone was safely away before Katrina came ashore.[p]Regards,[p]Ed

    Hey Wil, glad to see you back and posting.
    I know Slidell pretty well. It's where we stay for the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
    All of this breaks my heart but your photo gave me a lift. It shows tenacity, humor and optimism... very respectable traits, indeed.
    My regards to your uncle.

  • GrillMeister,
    house was built on a canal that connects to the lake, the house was 2 story, you see part of a wall on ground level but there is nothing behind the wall. How that piece stayed up is

    Chef Wil,
    Sorry to see all the destruction; however Mississippi and Louisiana will be back bigger and better!
    Keep the faith, and the Egg cooking!

  • Chef Wil, glad your uncle is OK! BTW, is that the 'dome' to another Egg down by the lamp shade on the edge of the water?

  • Rumrunner,
    nope, flower
