Cant make it to DIV - Say some prayers for us in LA !
March 13, 2012 02:23PM
Yesterday a huge storm (called a 500 year storm by some?) hit southern LA and dumped up to 15" of rain on me and many of my Cajun neighbors in Carencro LA in only a couple of hours. Sadly, my house got flooded with 5-6" of water throughout it and ruined lots of our stuff, wood floors and the bottom of the sheetrock walls. My wife and I have been working so hard to get through this. Sadly, with this disaster, I will NOT be able to make it to DIV XX and XXI as I have been planning for and so excited to attend.

I was looking forward to meeting so many of you. Even though my wife still encouraged me to go to DIV, I cannot leave her behind with this mess ! Please say some prayers for us as we work to restore our home. I just dont know why this happened, i'm sure there is a reason.

Thanks. EJ aka Cajuncoinhunter

I don't remember the number of times I couldn't get out of the garage in Lake Charles to get to the shop. One of those south Louisiana toad strainers. In 1980 Lake Charles got 22 inches in 24 hours.

Sorry to hear ya got flooded. Hope you make the next one.
My prayers for you and your family. Hope to see at the next one. (n/t)

Hope you get your house back in order soon. I've been flooded before and it isnt fun at all.
you know.....you may consider going to DIv anyway. the distraction may do you good....and your wife can run the dehumidifier all the while you are gone, and get it as dry as possible before you start tearing thnigs out. Its a shame you got flooded, but a shame you cant come too. The house will still be there when you get home. just a thought..............

Keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. I wish, I lived closer, I'd bring down my generator and tools down and
give you a hand.

I was so looking forward to meeting you. We have chatted many times here on the Spot, I hope everything works out for you
and your family and you will be able to make it to the hunt this fall.

Please remember that we all will be thinking of our fellow DIV'er family member and will keep you in our prayers.

Sincerely,
