The Two Year Mark

Posted on August 30, 2007 at 5:12pm 0 Comments

Well here we sit, exactly 2 years after KATRINA and life stumbles on in Hancock County. The suicide rate is 14% higher than it’s ever been, Doctor’s are handing out free 3

week supplies of anti-depressants like M&M’s at a kid’s party and the only

ones enjoying themselves are the Casinos.

Rosy pictures are painted of Biloxi and Gulfport due to the fact that most if the filming is inside a brand…

Mississippi Hurricane Season Notes:

We are now in the hurricane season. In the coming months, you're going to turn on the TV and see a weather person pointing to some radar blob out in the Gulf

of Mexico and making two basic meteorological points:

1) There is no need to panic.

2) We could all be killed.

Yes, hurricane season is an exciting time to be in Mississippi. If you're new

to the area, you're probably wondering what…


Yours Truly

Well, I've been in the business for 32 years and still learn something new every time I roll on a call.

I'm a KATRINA victim/survivor/responder, and am slowly rebuilding my life and my home, as well as dealing with the psychobabble shit that came with it... nightmares, short temperedness, a propensity to get the shakes in a bad thunderstorm... I'm rold it's PTSD.

I have a warped sense of humor, and can trade put downs and one liners with the best of them. And will enjoy an… Continue

Hey bob nice to kinda meet you lol. Yes I am planing on coming down in November/December. I have to see what will happen up here first-I'm a Volley right now-but scored really well on the Civil Service test for Schenectady county for the position of Paid Fire-Fighter-from which 3 paid departments hire off: City of Schenectady, the Village of Scotia and the Town of Niskayuna District #1. So if all goes well I might have to post-pone my visit-but I do want to return. I love it down there-just wish there was more I could do.. Glad to see you guys are at least having fun with the current situation-God knows I wouldn't know where to begin.
Well Godspeed and next time I'm down I'll let you know when I'm in town and see if Chief Kim can get some kind of picnic/drill where we all can hang out and talk the job up!
Layter Brother,
