No one died. Property value went down because the lake isn't there anymore.
Serious no. Unfortunate for those living next to the natural toilet yes
For most people, their house is their most valuable asset. If the value of that asset drops significantly, I'd say that's pretty serious. Not for those of us who don't live there, but definitely significant for those who do.
yea thats true.
Its fun to make fun of rich people though and your really killing me buzz
I think it's fun to make fun of IT guys.
I think Omaha might be pretty wealthy (even though his avatar suggests otherwise
). I'm not, but my parents are; they live in a gated community on the Atlantic Coast of south Florida. They're doing ok. When hurricanes came through and caused some structural damage to their home, even my parents considered that to be insignificant compared how some of the less-fortunate Floridians came out of it. They volunteered and donated to Hurricane Wilma relief. And while they had to pay a significant portion out of their own pockets to fix their home, never once did they complain about it.
So there, that's my reasoning; these people with their elegant lake and their homes built around it just to skyrocket the property value is not something that bothers me in the least. Like ACS said, no one was hurt, insurance will kick in, and just as my own parents admit to by living in Florida, little "disasters" like this go with the terretory.
