FEMA To the Rescue!

Having given Elva Galatas a too-small trailer a second time, a FEMA crew arrived last weekend and removed trailer number two. The crew also removed the handicap access ramp and the sewerage pipes and brought in a third trailer for Galatas and her handicapped son, and installed sewerage pipes again.

The third trailer–you know what’s coming–is exactly the same as the first two. Really. I couldn’t make this stuff up.

An indignant neighbor in Lacombe called FEMA to report what had happened, and was told “We’ll put her on a list.”

That’s a heck of a job, Pauli.
