Man I would be scared living down there Lol
^Not scared, just more prepared now.
glad it worked out for you and you got your new house. can't imagine what that was like to go through and the thousands who didn't have insurance.
^Yeah, we were some of the only people in my neighborhood to have flood insurance cause our town didn't even flood like this during hurricane Camile.
We were the first people to rebuild in our hood and had to watch the neighbors looking at us in a new house with them in FEMA trailers. Sad
I was in Biloxi in 08 for the NCO academy and I was amazed at how bad it still loooked then, NOLA was the same way. slow on the comback, but coming back indeed. Are you glad you stayed?
Yes and no. Yes because I want to stay in 1 place so my kids have life long friends. (Something I didn't get to have growing up with a dad in the oil refinery building business moving every couple of years).
And No, cause I really don't like this little hick town full of small minded people. Most of whom haven't been more than 200 miles from home.
Even tho I was born here, I only know 1 person from my short stint
here from my childhood and he is a retired Homicide Detective now.
When I got out of the military, I came home to visit and could not stand
the rest of the people I had known before leaving. Very racist, and a lot of my tight
friends from the military and now are black so I don't really fit in with the one's I used to know.
I've got a bunch of guy's I ride with here but, I wouldn't go so far as to call them my friends.
Just riding buddies.
I told the wife that as soon as the kids finish with school and college,
we are gonna dip outta here, ya know.
