I am looking to heading up to Oklahoma or Missouri for FEMA hauling contract, but they have us on hold until the later part of this week. Guess the roads are still that bad.

At least we never ran out of bourban!
Consider yourself lucky Chad. My buddy Brandon lives by Governor's Retreat. Still no power. They are saying it could be another 4-5 weeks for him. He's with REC. PSO said they are done with all of their repairs.

My parents have some friends on the north side of the lake that are still down too.

Oh, and my truck is still screwed up!

yeah its sad, but that is typical. From my understanding, and its limited the information I have right now, is that the roads are still not ready to have that much truck traffic rolling up and down them and they are still in the process of setting up the dumps and disposal areas. There are a lot of us who want to get up there and start working, they just wont let us yet.
