Just a little note to say I didn't get washed away by Hurricane Irene.
I did, however, work harder than I've ever worked. And although I'm exhausted, I'm exhilarated, too.
There are days when some of us question if what we do has any real impact...if we're good at it, or if it matters.
After spending the past two weeks answering questions and soothing my readers' fears over earthquakes and hurricanes (i'm a journalist in Hampton Roads), I can be confident in my job's relevance, and my sense of duty has never been so strong.
Tomorrow I'll tell you more about my personal storm adventures, but today, I'm just grateful to have lost nothing, not even power.
