Man, I feel for all you folks going thru what you have. And when I say I know where you're coming from, I'm in Katrina-land. We had no power for 28 days and it was like living in a third world country.
Everyone was so helpful to us (except the government) and some friends and family members have gone up to help clean out houses. I wanted to go but do to work, can't but if there is something you need that I can send you, please just ask and I'll do what I can.
Hang in there, it does get better.
