disaster thoughts....

what with rto being called up i got to thinking about the last time he was activated for relief efforts. it was in may of 1999 for the F5 tornado that hit Moore, OK. he spent a week standing on a corner and checking id's of people wanting to get into neighborhoods. and fried the tops of his ears off (i made sure he packed sunscreen yesterday, also some aloe vera gel in case he forgets to use it)

the other thing is rebuilding. driving through moore i can still tell where the tornado hit, there are still some empty lots, where there hadn't been before. and that is such a small area compared to what's going on now, i just can't quite wrap my brain around it.
