    Within' four hours of having moved into my new apartment down in Florida, after a drive of over a thousand miles and two days without incident, while out driving around the town to find my new place of work...


    WHAM


    ....some damn fool decides it would be fun to destroy my car.



    Not a week later a Category 4 hurricane goes flying over me, power's still out.


    But bad things happen in threes, so here I am wondering what could possibly happen next....




    Did I miss anything exciting in my absence?

    Another family just moved to Porth Charlotte just a week ago, before Charley hit, not one week in their house, they now have nothing.

    As far as comes in 3's, ha, I think my Dad just found that out today. He lost his home through Charley, can't get money, can't get a cup of coffee, had to ride down to Ft. Myers to get that cup of coffee and in hopes just for a tank of gas. Yesterday, I raved about FEMA doing a great job and getting to those families in needs with money towards their homes, today, I think I am viewing that a little more differently. My Dad was told last night by FEMA - go out and buy a generator, they will cover those expenses, from that to shelter. They were also sending the adjusters out to go over damages - now mind you, on the media's side, they were coming with checks ready to be written write there, OH HOW WRONG!!!! a female adjuster came out early this morning - first it's, you might be able to build what's left, yeah ok, you have no back, ceilings and roof down, walls down and you can build with what's there, not to mention the new regulations that were supposed to be in place, that won't be met if that stays - Best of all, they now say, IF the adjusters OK the claim, it could take 6 - 8 weeks to see a dime, so much for those checks - also, the generator may NOT be covered after all. I wonder what people will do now - now it's a waiting game on first will you even be covered, even though you have insurance, and when, when will you see a dime to even begin a new life??? Yeah, good luck Z, it sure does come in 3's!!!!!!!!
