9 months later

No, not 9 months later and a baby is here!! LOL! No way.....;)

Nine months after Hurricane Ike and not much has changed with the townhouse! We went over there this past week and took some pictures. You wouldn't believe it! Looks almost as bad as a week after the storm. I'm sure there are parts that look worse, but after 10 minutes I was sick to my stomach and had the heeby jeebies, I had to leave! Not only are the fleas taking over, the rats and homeless people from time to time are making themselves at home. You know too, the pool hasn't ever been drained... that is a liability big time! What has our Board of Directors done about it? Not much at all! Oh wait, except spend our money!! I will post a few pics, and you can look back to the others in older posts to compare, but most pics will be on my Flickr site if you're interested. I have sent them along with letters to any news agency I could think of and every local news channel and even some national ones. Maybe if we get some press, something can be done. Not that I would live there again, ever, but we are still paying our mortgage and rent too, and the Board is spending any kind of insurance settlement we may get on frivolous things. It just makes me want to scream, wait... I have done that! So prepare to be shocked:
Our front door is back there somewhere, the weeds are 10 ft high!
the marina
remember this boat? hasn't moved!
lumber anyone?
just sick...

That is just so amazingly sad!! I hope a news agency picks up your info. It surely needs to be told.

I can't believe how little has been done! It's sickening. Every time I drive past, I look for changes, but there aren't any outward changes, so I don't imagine there are inside either. Can't something be done about the board spending the money unwisely?

Oh my! I had no idea things were still that bad.

What? You are still paying for it and nothing is being done? Good for you for taking things into your own hands. I pray that you get positive results. Sickening is right.

It's crazy how 9mths have gone by and yet it looks like it could have happened yesterday. Still lots of blue tarps and broken down fences, etc. Shoot, we just our roof replaced a couple of months ago.
