People are rebuilding, but for every two new homes, there seems to be an empty lot. "If I could, I'd click my heels together like Dorothy and it would be all back the way it was - but we can't do it," says Helen Schrader. Shrader is a clerk at the gift shop next to the World's Largest Hand-Dug Well.
Schrader commutes 30 miles to her Greensburg job. At 76, she cannot afford to rebuild in the town she loves so much.

Some 1,400 people lived in Greensburg before May 4th. Several hundred people have left. Many of the 700 people remaining still live in "FEMAville," a mobile home park set up by the federal government after the storm.
With so many people still living in temporary housing, FEMA constructed tornado shelters. The shelters are nothing more than shipping containers, sunk into the ground and covered with dirt. Authorities say the containers will keep people safe until severe weather passes.
Homeowners are also preparing for the next big storm. Many are installing tornado-fortified walls and underground storm shelters.
Jobs in Greensburg are scarce. City leaders say they've received inquiries from new businesses about moving to town but nothing's been announced.
Residents must still buy groceries at a combination Dillons and Kwik Shop. The tornado destroyed the original Dillons on Main Street. The company announced plans this week to triple the size of the new store. At 3,000 square feet, the convenience store is small compared to your normal 50,000 square foot grocery store.

The Greensburg High School Class of 2007 graduated in a tent on the golf course two weeks after the storm. The Class of 2008 will receive their diplomas this Sunday in a newly built practice gym.
Next to the families and the friends will sit another important guest, the President of the United States. President Bush will be there to deliver the commencement address.
This is the President's second trip to Greensburg. He first visited the community five days after the storm.*The Associated Press contributed to this story*
