Johnny Moore is on the roof of his flood-wrecked home in New Orleans. But he's not waiting to be rescued. The three-and-a-half feet of water that swamped the modest brick-faced ranch he shared with his wife, Venus, has long since receded. Now, two years after Hurricane Katrina struck and the levees failed, Johnny is saving himself by rebuilding his house the only way he can: with his own hands.
