A Full Days Pay; Harvey's Gone

Hurricane Harvey shortly after landfall

A few years back I hit a rough spot –Easter Sunday 2013 to be exact.  My RV – the Old Girl – was damaged beyond repair and the Big Ass Suburban was not driveable;  all in less than 5 minutes.  I remember well the feelings of hopelessness, despair and uncertainty.  I remember being overwhelmed and thinking ‘ I will never get through this.’  I did something I never thought I would do and asked for your help.  Without the financial help of all of you,  my recovery would have been much less successful.  The

Started out my Saturday morning in fine fashion with this email:

My weather forecast

Good morning Andy, just wanted to drop a note of appreciation. We started on our first gate Monday, (My wife Linda and I). We are loving it.

Just wanted to let you know how much your blog helped us to prepare for the job. I have been reading it since 2011 and you helped us know what to expect, and what we needed to bring. We are about 35 miles from (somewhere in Jim Hogg County,TX) and love the area.

The people around here are great, they are
