Aquarium is the latest hurricane victim

My family and I evacuated our home in Slidell, Louisiana for hurricane Katrina and we are now living temporarily in Houston. Although our home survived the storm we are not allowed to stay there until basic services are restored in the community in a few weeks. I did manage to get into town via back roads to check on my house and it was ok. Thank God! My aquarium of course did not survive. I'm looking forward to getting back to the hobby that I enjoyed so much and to becomming an active participant of the AA forums once again. I thank all of you for the advice you gave me over the previous year and a half. I would not have been able to manage my aquarium without you. Although life is very difficult for us right now there are many others who were not as lucky as us. Please keep them in your prayers.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your aquarium inhabitants. Glad to hear that you and your house are OK. These hurricanes are getting out of control. I am in central Florida, and I got 3 of the 4 last year. If this keeps up, I am going to move.
