Charlie & Glenda,
When I spoke to Mom last night, Kevin (Modera) was right there and pretty adamant that chain saws were needed immediately.
To clear the debris so that they can begin to rebuild the infrastructure. Particularly the electric.
Please, to anyone flying, if you have the new rules re: security issues & what you can & can't fly with ... although I'd imagine most stuff is fine as long as it is not carry-on. I know that lighters/matches not permitted, they never were, I've got two big BBQ lighters that Continental confiscated off of Mom when she left in July and Dwayne's pocket knife.
Coleman makes a battery operated lamp. Excellent little deal.
Speaking of those, we all know size C & D batteries normally power things like radios/ghetto blasters, flashlights & the like. We also know that those are expensive State-side, can't imagine the price of them down there.
