Helpsters in Long beach tomorrow!

  • Hey all, we had the schoolbus of vols up in the 140s today doing great work and tomorrow we're heading out and setting up shop at cafe Laguna in Long beach on Minnesota and beech. We'll have access to power tools and a generator and about 10 people. Well also have shovels and wrecking bars and sledges and stuff to clear out basements.

    We're leaving Williamsburg at 9:00am. Anybody know what the traffic situation's been getting out? If you know anybody with specific needs please PM me and get in touch with us tomorrow at cafe Laguna.

  • come say hi. we are the house on the bay at the end of new hampshire - literally look up the block from laguna's. we are pretty far along, i just need a hand moving 2 big boxes. we'll try to figure out which neighbors are in the worst shape, though and point you in their direction.
     
    thanks for coming out. no idea on the traffic from the city. i have been coming in through long beach road daily and it hasn't been a problem.

  • We were out there today and traffic getting out wasn't bad until we got to the  Atlantic Beach Bridge. Didn't realize it was residents only that way but the cop let us through anyway. Not sure about other routes into LB.
    The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.

  • Hey JC. There are 3 of us that want to leave Williamsburg at about the same time. Do you have room on the bus? Please PM me if so. We'd love to roll with you and can pitch in for gas.

  • Lemon, if JC doesn't have room, head over to Pilgrim. They have a crew leaving around 9:30.

    Dude, seriously, how the Fuck long do I have to wait in to a disaster for it to become so non-ironic that it's ironic again for me to rock the loincloth/bullets/motocross boots/unnecessary helmet with horns look?

    SERIOUSLY, I'VE BEEN WAITING MY WHOLE LIFE FOR THIS

  • The volunteerism this weekend has been truly uplifting.  In the Canals we got visits from a group of Methodists, a group of Orthodox Jewish teenagers, and one man in a Mercedes SUV handing out water, cleaning products and toothpaste from a Trial Lawyers organization.  All just lending a hand and some elbow grease.  As the inside the home issues are becoming less urgent, we and the neighbors were all outside shoveling the sand-gasoline-swewage-baymuck into bags for pick-up.  One inspires the other.  A little bit of good can sprout from alot of bad.
