None of our government agencies seem to know what is going on. Just try to go to the SBA and get one of their loans. they tell you what you need in a loan even though it comes know where near what you need to get back to where you were before the storm even if you have GREAT credit scores.... Then when you add to that is the NFIP who is not giving us anywhere near what we needed even though we carried what they called replacement cost coverage.... NFIP is almost as worthless as the TWIA when it comes to getting your stuff repaired after a storm...

Just another Bush- league politician.

Stop voting for politicians (and others) at all levels of government who terminate the experienced career employees so they can replace them with their unqualified and inexperienced cronies!!

You can't just put these temporary poles anywhere. If the trailer is in the driveway, and the utility pole is in the back yard on the other side of the house, it would require burying the power to the trailer all the way around the house, driveway, etc to be in compliance with codes. It's not as simple as some people would lead you to believe.

It all takes a lot of time..just remember back to IKE and storms before that. Same old thing really.

A lesson voters and non-voters alike will pay for a long time to come.

Knowledge of a job can only be obtained through time worked on said job.

It is both sad and dangerous that our differences on political idiology has given way to stupidity.

When you elect politicians like Tea Partiers and other anti-government Republicans, who don't believe in government, this is the the kind of government you get. What else would you expect to get?

Gary Miller

It's easy to blame a politician you don't like. The 'experienced' people Bush replaced were the ones who screwed up each of the last three or four storms. Think back. How did they do after IKE? They learned nothing and messed up worse than the new people.

Mark over the years I have seen GDN
band folks from repeated negative comments. That swishing sound may be you circleing the drain. I would hate that.

Jarvis: [I would hate that.]

Me too Jarvis. I'll keep that in mind.
