The hurricane Rita got us big time.
It tore half the roof off the house, knocked out all the water, sewer, and power. There was no food, water, power or gas, other than what we had for emergency around the house. The rain drowned both my computers. After setting for 1 week they allowed us back in for a 1 day check and leave. I poured water out of the computers.
There were no hotels to sleep so I had to sleep in the woods in my truck for a while. Made it to my folks house in Lubbock Tex. My dad gave me his computer as he couldn't get it running.
Some small towns south were wiped off the map. There isn't a trace. Here in Lake Charles, even our hurricane proof hangers were damaged. one was totaled. We had some damage to the aircraft. I started to work last Monday. There is sheet metal, and fiberglass insulation all over.
The trees were knocked down all over. It will take years to get things back to normal. I got some groceries and some gas to day for the first time, as business is slowly opening up. It was good to eat something besides spam and canned goods. The National guard are still giving out MRE's, but I will pass on them.
I moved my stuff out of the wet rooms to the dry rooms, and so there isn't a lot of room.
Anyway it's good to be back. Thanks guys for taking up the slack while I was an evacuee.
