You're much closer than I am Adam. I'm north of Lafayette. Even though I'm a few hours away, offer stands.
Such a sad situation. The town I live in was wiped out in the big outbreak in the 70s. The farm I live on stood, but neighbors less than a mile away weren't so lucky. My mom has a lot of photos, the devastation they can cause is unreal, I can't even begin to imagine what it's like first hand.
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
