Hahahaha. Sorry, just the idea of there being anything LIKE that kind of organization out there makes me chuckle. The Red Cross and FEMA finally showed up "in force" this weekend and were basically worthless. One clinic I've been working with (its in a recently gutted fur coat storage warehouse complete with soggy fur coats hanging from the ceiling) had the Red Cross show up and ask THEM for supplies. I just have to laugh at it because otherwise I get too angry. Basically I showed up day one, put a strip of red electrical tape on my leather with my name written on it, and it hasn't come off since. That piece of tape has gotten me through National Guard barricades.
My rear tire is officially punctured and my carbs are in bad shape. Going to hopefully get the tire patched tomorrow, change the air filter, and at least spray some carb cleaner in there to get things loosened up. But the annual winterization/tuneup is going to be a much bigger affair this year. The suspension probably needs a pretty serious overhaul as well. But overall she's held up great. Really bonded over the past two weeks. She's starting to get famous out there.
