Anybody else feeling very little remorse for the rich families inconvenienced by this one?

After all the major disasters in the past couple years and the thousands of people whose lives have been wrecked by them I find it hard to feel bad for someone who owns a lakeside mansion on a PRIVATELY OWNED LAKE!

So it's ok that these people are going through this simply because they may or may not be wealthy? I have to strongly disagree. Most rich people are rich because they worked their asses off to get that way. If you want to feel jealous because they worked harder to make more money than you, fine, but downplaying the significance of this disaster simply because the owners of these homes are wealthy is wrong.

hmmm, I just found a cheap piece of real estate in a rich neighborhood. Drain it and build more McMansions... or a mall.

Since the "disaster" will mostly consist of a decline in property value due to the new lack-of-lake feature for them I find it hard to get all choked up about it, yes. Jealousy? Maybe - but compared to all the floodings and other disasters that have left people homeless in the past couple of years, calling this a "disaster" seems a bit too much hyperbole for me.

I guess it's all relative then.

Some enterprising Real Estate agent will just bill it as "New expanded lake, just a short walk from the back porch!"
