Hurricane Katrina – Lessons Learned

With all that's happened this past week life has certainly changed for many of us. My brother and I were in hurricane Katrina while visiting family and friends back in Mississippi this past week. My cousin's home was flooded as she lived in New Orleans and has moved out to be with her children in California and will be looking for work. Our mother's home was spared, being in Jackson, Mississippi; however, the home was without power for over a week until just yesterday. We lost several trees and one landed on the roof of my grandfather's home out in the country just north of Clinton.
