i see several interpretations to this one, from a serious one (the homeless) to the humourous one(where i live some people put cardboard boxes in a parking lot after they have shovelled it to mark 'their property' and possibly prevent others take advantage of their work)

Power must've been out. It is sad when your only shelter from the elements is cardboard. "...by the grace of God..."
