At least in terms of recapping our shore infrastructure along the Gulf Coast.
Now we just need a big hurricane to hit New England so we can recap the stuff we need and divest of everything else.
Hmmm... Maybe if we were properly funded for what is expected of us, we wouldn't have to hope for natural disasters in order to recap our infrastructure.
