I have a 900 ft shoebox in St. Pete but you are welcome in the spare bedroom/office/junk room for as long as anyone needs it. Big enough back yard for at least a couple boats on trailers.

Ohio sucks but I do have an extra room as long as you dont mind 4 dogs and a 15 year old daughter who likes loud music.

I was just watchin some of the coverage on the weather channel. Unreal. I just can imagine.

While I don't have much by some peoples standards and have much more than others will ever have, I do have room to house an OSO family that has lost everything.

If you know any OSO member that needs room and board please private message me. I will either arrange transportation or go get them myself and bring them into our home with open arms.

I only wish to God that somehow I could house somebody. OSO or not. Anybody. I would like to give them food, water, a place to bathe, a dry place to sleep. . . . I watch CNN footage, and the destruction is beyond anything I ever thought could happen in this great country. . . these people are desolate, desperate, miserable, and needy - beyond imagination. . . . it is a steaming cauldron of human suffering. Really my heart is breaking for these people . . . . and there is so little we can do to help. Any of us.

The work being done by our US Coast Guard is well beyond heroic . . . . how do you find the poor souls trapped by the hundreds in their attics, with the waters rising . . . .

I can't even BEGIN to imagine the conditions inside the Superdome . . . no electricity ( no A/C ), no lights, no water, no sewage, 90+ degrees. . . .
Oh my God . . . . . . . . . . . .

And they are saying that most of the people are BETTER OFF, if they can somehow make it inside the Superdome. . . .

I've got a 2 bedroom house in Spring Hill FL just North of Tampa. Free of charge as long as needed, just remodeled.
