Yikes! You were right!

I fixed it...

We're now open to UncleMick, and to all the spammers who want to take advantage of the situation...

Dog, congratulations and welcome back to civilization.

I can't belive unclemick would evacuate without his laptop (the women gave it to him as a gift to get him off Web TV). Since he was last online at 6 PM Saturday, maybe he didn't try to get out until Sunday morning. There were lots of folks who tried to drive out on Sunday and gave up due to massive traffic jams.

But knowing unclemick is a wily veteran of the fickle weather along the Gulf Coast, I've still got to believe he and the women are out, just occupied with more important things than contacting a bunch of 13 year old girls from Missoula on the internet.

Re: Run, unclemick!

If I was in unclemick's unfortunate but likely situation (my house is destroyed and my life is turned upside down), I probably wouldn't be logging in to check up on the ER message board a week after all this had happened. He is probably busy sorting out many details now. And the logistics of getting a working PC with electricity and internet connectivity wherever he is. I'm hoping he's ok somewhere right now along with everyone else though.

Does anyone know how to email him?

We're still waiting for a couple shipmates to check in; ironically they're all oceanographers & meteorologists. My spouse (also a member of this group) spent two years at one of the military's typhoon warning centers and has been pretty much glued to the TV & the FEMA website since we got off the ship. She says that this wasn't just a hundred-year storm-- it was a millenium storm.

I don't think a fish camp on 12-foot pilings is equipped to hotdog on 25-foot surge. I also hope that Unclemick got the word in time because I know he'd get the heck out.

Re: Run, unclemick!

Bummer -- I had two email addresses for unclemick, and messages to both addresses came back "user unknown".

Re: Run, unclemick!

I know hind sight is always 20/20, but it would be very helpful if we all had some type of notification system among us that maybe had an email tied to a friend or relative's email for this very type of situation. I realize that the internet is supposed to be great because we are anonymous but most of us have concern for our members and it is really tough when someone disappears and we have no way of knowing what happened to them.

I'm betting my bippy we'll hear from unclemick in about 2-3 weeks, maybe a month.

If we dont, we just have to put a tracer on where the dividend checks are going.

Re: Run, unclemick!

Unclemick has relocated to beautiful St Joe missouri - and yes - I've filled the change of address to reroute my div checks.

No internet connection in Memphis and I'm having fun getting on the net here.

Having a great time - credit cards, two vehicles, four pairs of underwear - AND no junk/stuff to worry about anymore - not even any debris to worry about - Gulf of Mexico came in and took care of that.

Re: Run, unclemick! (unclemick checks in on page 8!!!)

Weird

Red Cross just left - gave me a $1500 credit card - even though I explained we don't need it ($ wise) and the step daughter came back from Wal Mart - gave her 30 dollars off.

Will be looking at rental/real estate in NW Missouri - staring tomorrow.

After thirty years - we know the drill well - except this this time - we won't be going back - that area Lake ST Catherine - is so desired and fought over - they won't be issuing building permits - expect to see a new preserve added to to Bayou Savage - that's my bet.

Hills are scary - heh, heh, heh, heh.

Gotta give up the computer to some business types now.

BTY - anyone familar with greater Kansas City - St Joseph

Re: Run, unclemick! (unclemick checks in on page 8!!!)

Glad you are OK. I am originally from NW Missouri and have been to St. Joe many times. Still have family in Missouri. I have also lived on the gulf and have ran myself several times. Have four family members from Slidell at my house now waiting to go back when conditions are better. (Their house survived.)

Spent several years in the Leavenworth area.
Sorry to say one of my memories of the area was the somewhat incredible flooding produced by the Missouri River in the late 1980's
