I choose to live where I do, I looked at all aspects, ie flood plains, drainage, winds, snow, etc. access to the things I need etc. Those that choose to stay there will have to realize that this could happen again.
i agree but when you lose 40 or 50 years of photo albums and scrap books it doesn't matter how stupid you are.... it sucks

Well said, Sir.

It was a warm, stunningly beautiful day up north. Hope you all down south had the advantage of the same fine weather, either to clean up or catch some late-season riding. Inmate Barbsironbutt and I managed to spool off a few miles on the dual-sports. It was a superb day. This time of year, each riding day is a gift.

Our house was flooded in 85, lost nearly everything.
When we left, never expecting that the water would get that high.
The only thing my mom grabbed was photo albums, a very wise decision on her part.

And I've seen all we owned piled in the street outside, and many other families as well.

I know what you guys are going thru, and it is horrible.

I watch that video and I can still smell that mud, in everything.
I can't do more than offer my sympathies, hate to see anyone go thru this.

They had to throw blood out. Really?
Should you be the guy they call to find out exactly how much blood will be collected?

Tax sollars at work

Return from Hurricane Sandy – just a note to report on “your tax dollars at work” – Our Public Health Service (PHS) health response team was de-mobilized as our replacements arrived on Nov 13, 2012. We established and operated a Federal Medical Shelter from Oct 30 – to present at Brookdale Hospital in Brooklyn. Here, we received and cared for ~94 nursing home residents from 3 homes destroyed (>50% of these patients require full assistance with activities of daily living ). They came in fragile, cold, frightened and in dehydrated or worse condition. By day 3 under sheltered care these elder citizens began rolling and walking and showed renewed signs of hope.

See short newspaper article (http://news.yahoo.com/public-health-...210400868.html) &/or visit our Facebook page, Search “PhsTwo Rdf” (while it lasts…) (some pretty neat videos produced onsite by our public info officers

One letter, from one of our more alert and capable residents (redacted below) made the 12 hr days and sleeping on cots worth the effort:

Re: United We Stand

As per the above captioned, I am extremely proud of the U.S, Public Health Dept. Your generosity and kindness are a thing of magnificent beauty. We were lost and like the good shepard you healed us and set us back on solid ground. I have been transported back in time to my grammar school days when before our lessons we would stand and face our flag and repeat these beautiful words:

I pledge allegiance to the flag and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Your humble servant

Thanks you for your time and kind considerations.

Your humble servant,

Fuck the Red Cross. I was at ground zero for a long time. The Salvation Army did way more for longer down there. I never pass a SA bucket without dropping something in. Don't waste your money on the Red Cross.

I am going to (mostly) bite my tongue to avoid side tracking this away from the needs of the victims. Let's just say that the Red Cross being a non-profit organization des not mean that there are not a number of VERY well paid administrators as a part of the organization. During my time as a firefighter and formerly the Director of Emergency Management for our small town, I have seen us cope with three fairly substantial events (blizzard and two floods), Red Cross assistance could always be depended upon - as long as there were cameras rolling.

Back to the business of helping the victims!

As lousy as the care is in most for profit old age homes, anything you could have done would have been an improvement.

How they get away with poor care, badly trained and uncaring staff, and high monthly fees is a black eye on our society.

Thanks for providing a short respite to their normally horrendous care.

Your youtube link led me to watch a bunch more vids.

Wow!

I wasn't aware that your counties got hit so hard from that storm. Also I didn't realize you were native to the area.
