    Typically a boom period follows a hurricane affected area, once some normality returns, and insurance money rolls in. I guess that will take a little longer after this one. Yikes.

    I hope I'm not being insensitive. After Andrew - a lot of people took the opportunity to settle somewhere other than Miami. Do you guys think we'll get an influx of permanent residents in SoWal from LA and MS?

    Local DFW News channels interviewing evacuees staying in TX shelters in reunion arena, astrodome, etc. show many people who plan to relocate here, don't want to go back, and some have job interviews already. (They've even set up a semi-permanent "city" in the Astrodome - cleared any bookings for the next few months.)

    My wife has been volunteering at Butler Elementary with registration among other things. She has talked to numerous people who are giving serious consideration to making this area home. Most cannot believe the outpouring of support and generousity coming from our community and think that it would be a great place to live. Only time will tell.

    Most of the people we have here in East TX seem to be intending to stay.

    And the Mayor and his family are looking for a home in Dallas.

    Yes. Apparently Mrs. Mayor has family in Carrollton, north of Dallas and has been staying here through out the storm and it's aftermath.

    I think it probably means he stepped on one or more toes.

    It means he was the wrong choice for a leader.

    I noticed the same thing. I don't know the guy, but it seems like he's been doing alot of yelling, from texas. Why the heck isn't he closer to his home?

    I heard he went to Dallas to thank the Governor of Texas for all his help with the evacuees. When he got there they told him the capital was in Austin.

    For now, I just know that Mrs. Mayor is looking here....hopefully Mr. Mayor will stay closer to his city. I just wonder why they have come over to TX (other than she has relatives here) rather than relocating in LA somewhere?

    Here's another good one! 200 school buses in one spot under water. NO evacuation book says if necessary, the city will evacuate using school buses. Mayor was asked about this and he had no comment.
