Welcome, New Orleans friends

When Katrina brutally damaged New Orleans in '05, there were dozens of families who moved to our area - some for months - until they could repair and rebuild their homes. We found out from WaterColor yesterday that they are close to 100% occupied, mostly with families from New Orleans and surrounding areas. The beaches were packed today with tourists who fled Gustav's path. We wanted to welcome the evacuees to our area and let you know we will be praying that Gustav will not do much damage.
