    Not sure where else this could go but thought I would send a little prayer out to those down South La. trying their best to defend what they own from the rising water. I've been through a couple of those deals back n the day in Denham but I don't think those floods were anything like this one will be!!

    GOOD LUCK!!!:geauxtige

    Pray that those insurance companies don't go bankrupt as well.

    whether the damage is paid for by the people that work for and have stock in insurance companies or not, somebody's pocket book is taking a hit. the damage resulting from all the flooding from Louisiana up to Illinois will be at least hundreds of millions of dollars

    and even if you have insurance (which is mandatory if you take out a mortgage on a property in a 100-year flood plain), that doesn't mean it's going to make you whole, and it's certainly not going to make all the water your community is sitting under magically disappear

    for example, i was reading an article talking about the thousands of square miles of farmland that has already been flooded, and it was talking about how, with crop prices up this year, the farmers were in for a big year. but now their crops are ruined, and insurance isn't much help:

    You think they'd move their $150,000.00 tractors to high land then, wouldn't you? I have many friends who farm and two of them recently came back from Arkansas and said they saw tractors underwater. No sympathy for farmers here, it's become welfare for whites.
