I saw a cop and stopped to ask him if it was safe, he said sure the road had been plowed so I went to work. Saw very very few cars on the road. It was really no big deal to me but well to NJities I guess it was

- 5 degrees, 6 inches of snow on the ground and still snowing. The wind was blowing and visibility was close to zero. Out of a fifty person crew, only 1 person was late for a 6am start time.

Cool. That's the way it should be.
I bet the one that was late was only a few minutes late, too.

That would be the morning after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake when I worked in Oakland, just a couple of blocks from where the Cypress freeway fell. Besides the smell of destruction and death in the air, we had no power, and the offices were a big mess, with computers, monitors, plants and files all over the floor. We had to try and clean up as best we could by flashlight and be easy for the onslaught of quake related work when IT got the generators started and hard drives on the mainframe up.

I deployed to Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina.

No food, scare groceries, limited lodging.

Worked 30 days on a vegetative debris site with a porta pottie.
