I called the Ottumwa City Council and they said these plans are up in the
air because the refugees who were slated to come here don't want to come to
Iowa. I was going to send out a notice to the Amma mailing list. Still will
if it looks like they're coming. I noticed on
http://www.hurricanehousing.org/ that there are lots of offers from Iowa
City and Cedar Rapids. Don't know how many takers.

I would like to but we work at home and our place is pretty small. I was
thinking of setting up our camper in the driveway, but the weather will be
getting colder.
