Calling all hurricane survivors!
You remember what it was like getting up the next morning after Hurricane _______ roared through in the night, stepping gingerly out the front door the next morning to check on the big old oak tree, wondering if it took out your car. Or your fence. Or your neighbor's house.
You remember what it was like when the National Guard rolled into town and started directing traffic at all the downed stoplights.
And the Red Cross brought ice! and water! and and food that heated itself! MRE's are fun to make fun of but after a few days of subsisting on Spam and Dinty Moore beef stew straight out of the can you'd run over your own grandma to get something that might vaguely resemble a meal.
So now our inland fellow bloggers and neighbors have been hit by their equivalent of our hurricanes and are in need of help. Some places to start ---
