Go Away Irene!!!

Haven't you heard? If not, what rock are you under? lol!
Yes, Hurricane Irene is on her way to our area.
The track keeps changing so it's still unclear as to where it will be exactly.
Still, I'm scared.

I don't recall any major Hurricanes growing up. Nothing of this magnitude anyways. It's just not common for us to be a point of target. In any event, please pray that everyone remains safe!

Not sure many of you know, my full time job besides Mommy is Insurance. Yes. Insurance.
Can I just tell how NOT FUN it is to be in the Insurance Business right now? Not that it ever really is fun, but everything is magnified right now. People panic. They worry about their posessions. I understand, really I do. So, my job today is to comfort those that call & tell them 'good thing you paid that premium huh?' and try to hopefully get them to smile a little knowing they are covered. I'm also directing them to some company websites to help them prepare in the best way possible to try & prevent damage. All in all, most seem to take things well and by the end of our conversations, we are wishing each other safety.

If you are in the path of Irene.. I am saying a prayer for you! Stay safe.

We're suppose to get it on Sunday, but I think it won't be as strong. Be safe.
