Gulf Coast

Anyone have plans to volunteer in the Gulf? I am determined to go down May 10th.

Thanks!

I'm sitting in my house on the Gulf Coast now. I just wanted to thank you and all the others from around the world who have come to help. I moved my wife back here from DC three weeks before the storm to look after my mother. I was able to get them and the dogs out just ahead of the storm. My 78 SLC had to be left in the driveway. A lot of the roof shingles ended up on it but upon return it fired right up. The devastation is unbelievable here! Once again, thanks!

I'm in Diamondhead. Looks like you're close to Jackson.

We were luckier than most. Everything a mile east and west of us was wiped out. I had just moved my Ferrari, 450SLC and SL320 down. As I said earlier, the 450 had to be left in the driveway had suffered scratches from the roofing material and a bent antenna. Going to replace the antenna in a few minutes. I'm sad to say that we are moving back to the DC area in May. It's going to be many years until the Coast is "normal" again.

I guess you have it better than most down there. I think I saw several Fords and Chevys completely destroyed; no Ferraris tho! LOL

There is quite a bit of mess here in Fort Lauderdale, but nothing that henders life.

Trouble is none of the volunteer orgs have contacted me back.
