Yesterday, my little family hunkered down in our little house while tornadoes ripped apart the Southeast. We somehow never lost power, and stared in horror as we watched the destruction happen live -- only a few miles away-- on the TV.
I really dreaded going to work today. I'm an insurance adjuster. Everyone I spoke with was hysterical, and for good reason. I'm empathetic by nature and for that reason I find my job exhausting. I'd like to say that I was happy to be able to help people in a small way, but all I really wanted to do was go home and hug my little boy over and over again.
I'll be working 12-hour days without a day off in sight until further notice. This concludes my report.
