I heard an interesting term on CNN last week and now on the news today. "Katrina Fatigue". Emails and emails from people to the news stations requesting no more Katrina coverage. They say enough already and if this had happened in (fill in the blank) they would have moved on by now. The country is sick of it. Let me just say its not for a lack of trying. Our home looks the same as it day the day the water left. We have filled all the paper work out, waiting for SBA, or the FEMA flood elevations that took them 7 months to put out. Still a the answer to the questions that we all need answered: Will the levees protect us? Maybe, In ten years a definite maybe. Do we have to raise our homes to be get flood insurance? Well we recomend that you raise your home 3 feet and since its on a slab the cost will be $50-100 thousand dollars (for a house you payed less than $100,000. and no flood insurance policies are being written now. maybe in the future you can get flood insurance. What about the job market will it come back? Maybe if we get mayor x in office, until then there are plenty of jobs in debris removal and mold remidiation. What about federal and state assistance? What? I'm sorry did you say something? What about your insurance didn't you get money from your house? Oh yes, about half what we should have and the mortgage company took that. Why would anyone in there right mind want to rebuild with assurances that a. There will be levees that actually protect us b. we have to raise our homes to maybe get flood insurance. and c. no jobs at least in my field. If anyone has the right to have "Katrina Fatigue" its us, we are still living it. How do you feel about it? I suspect most that are sick of the coverage have no idea of just how bad it is down here. Do you know how sad it is to have your kids birthday in a FEMA trailer? Do you know how sad it is to own only what can fit in your trunk? Do you know how it feels to have an entire communtiy ripped from you? Your job? Your friends and family? I say to those who are sick of it to come here. Give me a call I'll show you what your not seeing on TV. I'll show how people are living here in hell. Understand that I have received nothing but kindness from the good people here. I just wanted to rant and clear some thing up a bit. June is getting very near and we are not the least bit ready.
