I think Florida gets it much worse and I do feel sorry and sad for anyone in it's path. No matter where they live. Very scarey.
However, I agree, we may hear about this on the news a great deal more then we hear about you all in Florida..........

Thank you for thinking about the people. They need our prayers and praise God no one was killed. They have had their share of troubles that is for sure. God won't put any more on them than they can handle as long as they believe.

I agree. The residents of New Orleans have been through so much. They just need to keep the faith. God will see them through.

Well I'm glad it wasn't as bad as it could have been. One thing I noticed after Katrina hit, all of Hollywood showed up to make sure that the cameras caught them "helping" out...didn't see not ONE of them here when the Villages and Lake Mack and Paisley not only were destroyed, but 20 lives were lost. Know what? I for one am GLAD they didn't show up...but it sent a message to a lot of people: if you're poor and black, Hollywood's "finest" will show up because it makes them look good to help out those people. If you're poor white people, average income white people, or those who are a little wealthier like in the Villages, you don't and won't get their attention. It shouldn't matter what color one's skin is or what income bracket they are in - when disaster hits, everyone should do all they can to help out in any way. That's what I'm SO PROUD of Lake Co. for - everyone here has really been hard at it helping each other out.

Are you being Sassy again.....LOL

You all do not want Hollywood there, and I guess they are not there because there was not as much drama.

That is because Lake county is full of God Fearing people that pull themselves by their bootstraps, while New Orleans is filled with Voodoo worshipers that have an entitlement mentality.
