I read, and read, and read. After a whole bunch of reading, I asked myself what I had just learned of a practical nature. Gobblygook doesn't help. It was a short answer. I asked myself what I could share with my neighbors whose homes were neatly piled up on top of their slab. I decided I didn't have any additional knowledge to share with them. I hadn't learned anything of value. I gave them everything FEMA sent me...........which was three links to certain websites. Maybe their eyes won't glaze over.
They already had the newspaper article that told them they didn't qualify for aid. It seems they needed more neighbors in addition to themselves to suffer catastrophic loss. I guess it's kinda a volume discount type of thing.
That's all I had. I felt I let them down.
