Snow Lee of Marrero, La., stands outside her home with her son, daughter-in-law and grandson after returning to Jefferson Parish on September 5.

The house only suffered some cosmetic damage, but because of looting and other lawlessness in the area, the family decided to pack up valuables and leave the area for an indefinite period of time.
