Summary
Herbert and Lydia Gettridge raised nine children in the Lower Ninth Ward. Their house, which Mr. Gettridge built on land he purchased in 1943, took on 10 feet of water when the levees breached. Five of their children who owned homes in New Orleans also lost everything. Over the year and a half that reporter June Cross follows him, Mr. Gettridge battles with the city, the insurance company, and the bureaucracy of the state-run Road Home homeowner assistance program. In June 2008, Lydia Gettridge came home, but her return was bittersweet. By sheer force of will, Mr. Gettridge had managed to rebuild their home of more than 65 years. Would he do it over again? "I'm kind of skeptical about that now," Herbert Gettridge replies. "Once upon a time, I could answer that question in a split second for you; I can't do that now."
