where did you go to before the storm hit?
I bet a lot of people will change there preception on life after losing most or all of their possessions... but I think that is more of a progression...
can make one either happier or angrier...

what a mess though!

things are getting cleaned up fast though. yet there are still a lot of people without homes and i am fortunate enough to still have mine. i was the first house on the slope up, so all i had to do was block off my garage door to not get any water. my backyard was 8 feet under water!

oh, i stayed during all of this, and i've never been more scared in my life! seeing the water rise and everyone's homes down the street under water up to their gutters! i decided to make a trip down the street during the storm to see if there was anyway i would've been able to get out in a vehicle so i could get to the hospital if i had to. i was told to put what's valuable to me in a small suitcase just incase we had to leave. i put my sticks, my dvd's (mostly weckl and dream theater), my cd's, and a picture that was special to me. i found myself saying, "hmm, doesn't look like i have much to live for, heh." jk jk..

that night the whole city was pitch black from the lack of power. i was far too afraid to even walk down the street because i had no idea where i was going. i was only without power for about 5 days, unlike some..
