Bismarck, Baby!

Yep, I'm in Bismarck, North Dakota.
That's north of Denver, but not as far north as the North Pole (but almost).
We need to catch up...... but the short story is that I finally (after five months) got hired by FEMA, as a writer/researcher.
I went into the regional office in Denver and worked for a few weeks, and then they sent me ("deployed me" in FEMA-talk) to Bismarck. It's all about the flooding up here, which seems to never end.
I've been here for two weeks, since April 8, and I could be here for another 2, 3 or 4 weeks.... who knows?? It's all about being "FEMA Flexible."
I'll be posting more stuff up here soon, because of course it's all new to me here so I'll be out exploring in my off time. (Which isn't much, considering I've been working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week so far... I'm up at 5 a.m., at work by 5:45 a.m.)
Mostly, I just wanted to see if this blog was still working, and evidently it is! (Thanks Dave!!)
Talk to you soon,
