This true story will give ya' an idea about some of my neighbors and how things go in Texas.

Yep! I'm pretty proud of 'em.


GOOD BYE FEMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



This story is about how East Texans reacted to the recent fires a little north of the Houston area. It describes a different approach than you've seen reflected from the east coast following the hurricane rains and flooding and a completely different view New Orleans' handling of their disaster.

*{ HEB is a family owned Texas grocery chain that has done battle with SafeWay and Kroger as well as Wal Mart. Safeway and Kroger have very little presence in the state now.HEB has lot of community support in most of their locations.}
**Thanks to Forrest for sharing it.





This is a great commentary on Texas folks vs Big Govt.



Here are some stories about the Tricounty fire in Montgomery , Grimes, and Waller County, Memorial week, 2011.



My neighbor across the road has a sister named Kenna. Memorial Day, when she saw the huge column of smoke over our homes, she left a birthday party at my neighbor's house to meet with her friend Tara at the Baseball complex in Magnolia. She called the owner of the complex and got permission to use the warehouse there as a staging area for donations for the fire fighting effort.


They put a notice out on facebook that they were going to be taking donations on their facebook pages. That night as they were setting up tables and organizing, News 2 Houston came by and saw the activity, investigated and left with the phone numbers and a list of suggested donations.


The facebook notice propagated faster than the fire. By dawn they had 20 volunteers, bins, forklifts, and donations were pouring in. I stopped by with my pitiful little bags of nasal wash and eye wash, and was amazed. There must have been 20 trucks in the lot, offloading cases of water, pallets of Gatorade , and people lined up out the door with sacks of beef jerky, baby wipes, underwear, socks, and you name it. School buses and trailers from many counties around were there offloading supplies, students froming living chains to pass stuff into the bins for transport to the command center and staging areas. If the firefighters had requested it, it was there. What do you give the guy out there fighting the fire that might engulf your home? Anything he or she wants. Including chewing tobacco and cigarettes.


Kenna moved on to the Unified Command Post at Magnolia West High school . She looked at what the fire fighters needed, and she made calls and set it up.


Mattress Mac donated 150 beds. Two class rooms turned into barracks kept quiet and dark for rest. The CEO of HEB donated 2 semi trailers full of supplies, and sent a mobile commercial kitchen at no charge to feed all the workers, but especially our firefighters, 3 hot meals a day. An impromptu commissary was set up, anything the firefighters had requested available at no charge.


As exhausted firefighters (most of them from local VFDs with no training or experience battling wildfires) and workers came into the school after long hours of hard labor, dehydrated, hungry, covered with soot and ash, they got what they needed. They were directed through the commissary, where they got soap, eye wash and nasal spray, candy, clean socks and underwear, and then were sent off to the school locker rooms for a shower. HEB then fed them a hot meal and they got 8 hours sleep in a barracks, then another hot meal, another pass through the commissary for supplies to carry with them out to lines, including gloves, safety glasses, dust masks and snacks, and back they went.


One of the imported crew from California came into Unified Command and asked where the FEMA Powerbars and water were. He was escorted to the commissary and started through the system. He was flabbergasted. He said FEMA never did it like this. Kenna replied, "Well, this is the way we do it in Texas ."


Fire fighting equipment needed repair? The auto shop at the High School ran 24/7 with local mechanics volunteering, students, and the firefighters fixing the equipment.


Down one side of the school, the water tankers lined up at the fire hydrants and filled with water. Down the other side there was a steady parade of gasoline tankers filling trucks, dozers, tankers, cans, chain saws, and vehicles.


Mind you, all of this was set up by 2 Moms, Kenna and Tara , with a staff of 20 simple volunteers, most of them women who had sons, daughters, husbands, and friends on the fire lines. Someone always knew someone who could get what they needed- beds, mechanics, food, space. Local people using local connections to mobilize local resources made this happen. No government aid. No Trained Expert.
At one point the fire was less than a mile from the school, and everyone but hose volunteers were evacuated. The fire was turned.
The Red Cross came in, looked at what they were doing, and quietly went away to set up a fire victim relief center nearby. They said they couldn't do it any better.


FEMA came in and told those volunteers and Kenna that they had to leave, FEMA was here now. Kenna told them she worked for the firefighters, not them. They were obnoxious, bossy, got in the way, and criticized everything. The volunteers refused to back down and kept doing their job, and doing it well. Next FEMA said the HEB supplies and kitchen had to go, that was blatant commercialism. Kenna said they stayed. They stayed. FEMA threw a wall eyed fit about chewing tobacco and cigarettes being available in the commissary area. Kenna told them the firefighters had requested it, and it was staying. It stayed. FEMA got very nasty and kept asking what organization these volunteers belonged to- and all the volunteers told them "Our community". FEMA didn't like that and demanded they make up a name for themselves. One mother remarked "They got me at my boiling point!" and suddenly the group was "212 Degrees". FEMA's contribution? They came in the next day with red shirts embroidered with "212 Degrees", insisting the volunteers had to be identified, never realizing it was a slap in their face. Your tax dollars at work- labeling volunteers with useless shirts and getting in the way.


The upshot? A fire that the experts from California (for whom we are so grateful there are no words) said would take 2-3 weeks to get under control was 100% contained in 8 days. There was so much equipment and supplies donated, 3 container trucks are loaded with the excess to go and set up a similar relief center for the fire fighters in Bastrop . The local relief agencies have asked people to stop bringing in donations of clothing, food, household items, and pretty much everything else because they only have 60 displaced households to care for, and there is enough to supply hundreds. Again, excess is going to be shipped to Bastrop , where there are 1500 displaced households. Wish we could send Kenna, too, but she has to go back to her regular job.

This is a wonderful post! The people working together sound awesome! It doesn't surprise me a bit that a community group working together can do the job, probably a 100% better than FEMA. Very Happy ☀

Fema could and should take lessons from a couple of "Moms"! I travel from Alabama to Louisiana. As you go through Mississippi you pass a huge "graveyard" of Fema trailers all sitting around since Katrina.

What a waste. It is sad and very disturbing to hear our government clammoring about taxes when you see this. and this is just the tip of the wastefull ice berg we call government!

This is a great story and outcome and brought tears to my eyes when reading it. My hats off to the two ladies who set this up. This is how people are to react to crissis instead of relying on government agency and taxpayer money. This story reminded me of two crissis I was invovled in, one in 2008 a flood in Iowa and one in 1993 in Washington State. The Iowa flood the community got together including the fire department and did what it took to save the town with no help from FEMA. I can say we had no problem with FEMA because they did not come around until the water was contained, my house next to the fire department were the last inside the flooded area. I remember looking back down the street from where we were filling sand bags and thinking wow how the community came together as a whole and made it all work, including the community building turning into a place where we could get 3 meals a day and all the fluids we could drink, it brought tears to my eyes, remembering what had happened in Washington in 1993. No one came together to stop the river from flooding a little town, no one wanted to help but a few, until the government got there. it was sad. I was there with my front end loader trying to keep the hiway clear and pushing up sand to keep the river from flooding the town. I was told by county to submit a bill and they would pay me. I never sent a bill, because it is our duty to help one another, just like the story above. God Bless all who helped. AJ

Goodbye FEMA, Hello Texas 212 Empty public vs private

Post by Goldmember Thu Oct 06, 2011 10:22 pm

The private is always the better remedy: stay in the private! In law, in relationships, in commerce our private unalienable unlimited capacity to operate without the Public with a couple exceptions, is the biggest difference maker in the fruits of fulfillment in all of our lives.....this blog exemplifies what makes the collective union of our estates (states) joined together for common mankind in times of great need.....and the public (fema) cannot adequately meet the challenge: stay in the private, its abundant, wealthy, self governed, and highly emphasized repetitively throughout scripture (private vs. THE WORLD). This story resonates on so many levels.......proof the private is abundant beyond your wildest imagination, and it takes a fire for this manifestation to appear right in the hands of two blessed women and their private relationships......BRAVO!!!!!!!
