I was just wondering if any of your towns/cities are getting any new permanent residents as a result of the Katrina disaster? We had an article in our local paper a few days back stating that over 100 new families will be joining our community permanently as a result of Katrina. The Red Cross had housed 125 families in an empty dorm on campus scheduled to be torn down, and several evacuee families had come to the area to temporarily live with relatives. The article said that 93 of the 125 families housed on campus have decided to stay in the community permanently, and several more families that had been housed with relatives have made the same decision. I am assuming these people have lived on the Gulf Coast all their lives, so I am curious to see if they will want to stay here after they go though one of our Midwest winters. After contending with our snow and ice storms, my guess is that they will be looking southward again to sunnier climes come spring. If they can adjust to our winters, they will have chosen a very nice place to live, but it will never be New Orleans climate-wise.
