Katrina

Since I only use 1 bedroom of my house and live very close to MARTA, it seems like my house would be perfect for any hurricane evacugees. At first I thought I would be able to just drive by a shelter and pick up a family, but to qualify for assistance people have to work through the system. So, today, after procrastinating a while, I posted an offer to keep people at my house on the website that the AJC has set up for this. The AJC says they will share the list with relief agencies. We’ll see what happens. While I want to help people, I don’t want to have just anybody in my house. Here’s what I wrote:

“Single male homeowner with 2 indoor dogs has 1 or 2 bedrooms of house to share with a small family, married couple, or two individuals for up to 3 months. On bus line; one mile to MARTA rail. One-story house, but there are a few stairs at every entrance. No smoking, drugs, profanity, or weapons. Would prefer someone placed through a relief agency.”

  1. No news to report. I haven’t gotten any e-mail inquiries or phone calls. Probably all the people that would have stayed used bad language and had weapons, so they decided they couldn’t abide by my rules.
