stop whining and do something.

i started to fall into that trap. it's easy; most of us are far away and feel helpless, while so many people have lost their homes to hurricane katrina. the above post stopped me in my tracks. there's plenty of time for complaining about the evacuation and the careless cost cutting measures of the bush regime later.

so instead of whining, i'm propagating this hopefully useful link: hurricane katrina help wiki -- IMO a wiki is a fabulous resource for this sort of thing because anyone who has information can just add it themselves. and here are some answers for paul who wrote the article linked above. [livejournal.com profile] bubba, you might find the FEMA information interesting.

and then i'll go and find out everything there is to know about sudden emergency preparedness in my own town and put it together on a website. i started that a while ago, but always get sidetracked.

oh yeah, the GI bug has departed. about time. that was a week of pure misery, though it sounds hollow to say that when comparing it with an actual catastrophe. well, i felt sorry for myself while it lasted, and now i am over it.
