Default Hurricane Charley

Just a note to all my old friends at Hamumu. The Zooks survived Charley with minimal damage to the house and psyches. Others were not so lucky. I met more neighbors Saturday morning than I had in the two years we have lived here. With all the power outages (ours was only out for 2 1/2 days [and 90+ temps!] and many are still without after 7 days), traffic lights being out of commission, and mucho, mucho debris to clean up it seems the population is divided into two camps: those that are kind and willing to help; and those that are selfish, self-centered, and rude. Seems disaster brings out either the worst or the best in folks. A year or so ago I believe it was Solange who said something to the effect that it takes less effort just to be nice to each other. It saddens me that those who have lost much have to put up with jerks on top of everything.

I can't imagine how traumatising it would be for someone to lose their home, to lose everything...
