    Default Hurricane Rita Christmas

    The Night Before Christmas
    Our Town - 2005

    Tis the night before Christmas and all through the town
    Debris of all kind is stacked in a mound
    Houses are beat up, trees are not there
    The landscape is different and curiously bare

    Fences are gone and the dogs have got out
    Insurance agents are nowhere about
    Mold in its grandeur is lining the walls
    Inside the cabinets and all through the halls

    Moms are exhausted and daddies are spent
    They're paying their house notes and now paying rent
    FEMA is long gone, the Red Cross has split
    Searching for new towns disasters have hit

    The children are restless as they lay in their beds
    Troubled thoughts filling their heads
    Can Santa find them amid all the rubble
    Or will he think it's just not worth the trouble

    Then out of the night comes the sound of small hoofs
    Prancing and pawing atop the blue roofs
    Though Santa's landmarks were not where they'd been
    The shine of the trailers guided him in

    He managed somehow to deliver the toys
    To all the deserving good girls and boys
    And they heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight
    "It takes more than Rita to mess up this night!"

    Default can't take the credit...

    It was an email sent to me, but it was so true and cute, I had to post it....we are the official "blue roof" community. No shingles only blue tarps on the roofs! We tell the kids the wood strips on top of the blue tarps will help the reindeer stop easier this year!!

    Default made me cry

    Snowqueen,
    Very touching. Put everything back into reality and it is easy for us that don't live there to think everything has gotten back to normal.

    No question is a stupid question if you don't
    know the answer. Stupid is not asking.
