Well,

Chris,

feelings can still post and we are still shocked at the images we saw and hope and pray for you all. This is when the best of human character shows by helping, sharing and pulling through.

Asher

It will be rebuilt and pretty close to the original. Only changes will be a standing seam metal roof and hurricane shutters. Insurance company so far has worked with me, not against as has the lovely government. At least he didn't throw rolls of Bounty at us. FEMA is a horrible joke around here and as to the SBA disaster loans, all I can say is you'd best read the fine print because they giveth, then taketh and taketh and keep on taking.

Donít worry so much about ďthe conditionsĒ. You actually donít have to pay back for disaster relief. Theoretically, yes, politically no! The government forgives these loans eventually. Do some research on it. I hope itís still true!
