    I think I'll do a shout out to NJ to see if I have any fellow chicken lovers near by. Best and closest I've come up with so far is New England but that's still 3 hours away. Look at the newbies. They generally will give a location coming on board.

    I've got storm and flooding as we speak. Crazy rainy day here. Still raining buckets and it has been all week. When it's not raining it's like walking through soup outside. GLOBAL WARMING!

    Where are you at in LA? Right now I'm in baton rouge helping out the Red Cross efforts. Your state is beautiful but definitely muggy and hot! Go LSU!

    I'm slightly north of Gonzales that's about 15 miles south of BR in Ascension Parish.
    Lots of the flooding is in Livingston parish, east of my location.

    Thanks for the help.

    I've been to Gonzales numerous times, and even got stuck in the mile long D Snap money giveaway (food stamps) just the other day!

    Food stamp give away? Where'd that happen?

    You have to forgive me, if it was on the news in the days following the hurricane, I didn't see it. Pre and post hurricane I was working either preparing for or repairing damage, on straight nights.

    I am not very proud of the portion of our great state's population, that seemingly take advantage of the give away programs.

    Right on the front page of the Baton Rouge newspaper-- picture of a woman "talking" to a FEMA representative-- the caption explained that her house had flooded, but she had no flood insurance. Because--- when she paid off her home, in order to save money she canceled her flood insurance. Couple things bothered me about that--- 1. The home was here's free and clear, to me that makes it even more important to maintain insurance. 2. It's south Louisiana at one time or another everything is going to flood. Flood insurance is very important, it's not like we are on the side of a mountain. 3. If she paid off her home isn't she saving money by not paying a home mortgage?

    Thanks for all your doing?

    I'll have to reserve comment but was just amazed at the large amount of Mercedes Benz's, Range Rovers, Jags, Lexus, and Cadillacs in the mile long food stamp lines. :mad:
