Well fellas , I'll be signing off here shortly and may not be able to sign back on till after this storm has passed (probably one more time late tonight to check E-mails and pm's one last time). Hard to believe that this time three years ago to the day I was homeless with all my material belongings either gone or realy wet !!!
I got the same "bug out" kit ready that saved my ass for Katrina all packed and ready. Luckly the state has over prepaired and already started evacuations and I think things will go much more smooth than last time.
For all you people that will be affected by this storm , I will keep you and your loved ones in my prayers. If you are in this storks path please don't take it lightly , trust me , being chest deep in flood water hanging on to a small flat boat thats way over loaded with your family , while being pelted with 100+mph wind and rain is NOT where you want to be , been their done that and have the mental and physical scars to prove it.
I have a comfortable little camp in Pike County MS about a mile from my home and also have a recently vacated 16x80 mobile home on a piece of property I recently purchased, either or both are at your and your families disposal for as long as needed if worse comes to worse. I am saying my prayers that all will be well. If our prayers are answered and all goes well for your family and you know of some good folks who become displaced that need a place to gather themselves for a couple of months that offer will be open to them also. I suffered through losing everything I owned after a house fire. Until someone has been there and done that they will never understand the true toll it takes on someone..
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.
I live in Haughton about 3 miles from the Louisiana Downs. Work for DOTD in the Minden PE office.
I think that I remember you posting pictures of your son riding at a facility near you that has hunter/jumpers. If you know of those in need that are looking for stables - we have them and can locate others. Unfortunately we have to charge but no more than we charge normally for overnight stablers.
If the facility that you had pictures of was in Folsom then the people there will know my wife and daughter - Ms. Sig and Raegan from Double Rainbow. If you have need or know those that do then you have an inside track.
For people (that need a place to stay) your referral is all that is necessary. I know that you work in some capacity with LE from what I have read on the board. You can reach me by cell at 318-208-0920.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May He grant you peace.
It's OK if you don't do it like me!
