Really bad Fire here yesterday. I have been in all the building you can see burning. The house by the funtown pier was owned by an ex boss of mine.

All the towns in the county sent fire equipment to put out the fire. They had to pump water out of the bay the volume used was too much for the water company to keep up/

Hard to believe their luck could be that bad. They will rethink using all that wood. Looks like the city recently shot down plans to use concrete fire-proof panels. They'll get a second chance now.

What aggravates me is they are now saying rebuild with FEMA hurricane money. There are still a lot of people not in their homes due to the hurricane, now they want to give the business men money for a second time?
I spoke to an engine company today while fueling up at the public works garage and they had just returned from being there all night. They said at the peak of the fire, there were 400 firemen there from around the county. Other fire department from other counties set up in their stations to cover for them. I've got to say that in an emergency the state pulls together.

Rich I couldn't imagine any water system being able to handle that volume of water, drafting from a large pretty much endless body of water is a must. If they were to rebuild again with hurricane money it'd be tasteless and disrespectful. Pulling together in crisis shows the true heart of the fire service and the majority of people in it.

Having US tax payer payouts due to natural distastes is a recent invention and phenomenon, as FEMA was culminated n 1979.  Now however its expected and expanding.

Of course if we didn't spend in excess of a trillion a year on war, military, and security we might be able to actually considering doing things like this.

Now the mindset is do it all, do more of it, not pay for any of it.

If these cash assets were on hand it might be somewhat understandable.  But to borrow the money, and force the burden to pay for this and other expenditures to our grand kids and beyond isn't right in any way shape or fashion.

Every tornado, every flood, every hurricane, there isn't enough money.  Better stated there isn't any money, how deep are we willing do go on the credit card and then hand the bill to generations down the road?

Tally ho for Colorado get the pallets of cash, errr the credit card out.  To pile on the shame, most of the money will disappear into a big black hole with zero accounting.
