For those of you who have asked what happened to my friend at his “hurricane party, here’s what happened:
After considerable urging and death threats from his friends and family, he made the decision to move out about 10 minutes before the wall of water flooded his basement and added 8 ft of water to his first floor, destroying everything on that floor; kitchen, living room, den, bedroom, bathroom and dining room.
He was one of the lucky ones. The house behind his burned to the ground.
