       Clean-up is ongoing, stress levels still high, but at least the end is in sight, and humor is starting to prevail.

                                          The Night Before Christmas
                                                   In Our Town
                                                       2005

      Tis the night before Christmas and all through the town
      Debris of all kind is stacked in a mound
      Houses are beat up, trees are not there
      The landscape is different and curiously bare

      Fences are gone and the dogs have got out
      Insurance agents are nowhere about
      Mold in its grandeur is lining the walls
      Inside the cabinets and all through the halls

      Moms are exhausted and daddies are spent
      They're paying their house notes and now paying rent
      FEMA is long gone, the Red Cross has split
      Searching for new towns disasters have hit

      The children are restless as they lay in their beds
      Troubled thoughts  filling their heads
      Can Santa find them amid all the rubble
      Or will he think it's just not worth the trouble

      Then out of the night comes the sound of small hoofs
      Prancing and pawing atop the blue roofs
      Though Santa's landmarks were not where they'd been
      The shine of the trailers guided him in

      He managed somehow to deliver the toys
      To all the deserving good girls and boys
      And they heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight
      "It takes more than Rita to mess up this night!"
