Your mind can play tricks on you, helping you to forget unpleasant details until you are confronted with them again and they are all too familiar. We were out in the field today helping communities directly affected by the recent Texas tornadoes. I had forgotten how the pink home insulation gets strewn through the trees around a destroyed house like dirty cotton candy. I'm sure that in a few months these memories will fade and the memory of those that we helped will remain. The human mind is an amazing thing.

How long are you going to be there before you can come back?

Being deployed to Texas to help with medical support at the Red Cross flooding disaster relief operation. Tragically, this is the second time this year that I have deployed to Texas for a flooding disaster. Can't believe they were hit again so soon. Should be on the ground tonight in Houston tonight.

Have a safe trip my friend. Looking forward to working with you on the 31st annual tribute to Dr Martin Luther Jr in January.

Our "Cape to Cape" Tsunami Drill this weekend. 700 people practiced evacuating. Thanks to those who participated, and to the 100+ staff, both volunteer and paid, who made it possible. Red Cross volunteer Velda Handler was there to tell folks how important it is to carry 72 hours of survival supplies with you. Yeah Velda!
Hundreds of people on the Oregon coast evacuated to higher ground today as practice and in preperation for a real Tsunami evacuation order.

For those that wondered how to prepare for the really important disasters, like Zombie Apocalypse!

Our Red Cross team was out in the field today in communities directly affected by tornadoes. We came across some pockets that been devastated, but have not received any assistance yet. If I ever get immune to the smell of rotting food, pulverized drywall, and black mold, and the scenes of personal devastation ago with them then it's probably time for me to stop doing this kind of work. Bless my professional colleagues who refused to be overwhelmed and instead went house to house helping every family we could. A very humbling day. This is why I respond.

Heading to Oklahoma to help out with  Red Cross tornado disaster relief tomorrow. Can't wait to get there and start helping, but there are still tornado warnings being issued. They are tell arriving volunteers to stay at the airport because it is unsafe to travel. Hope things calm down by tomorrow, being from the PNW I don't have much life experience with staying safe during tornadoes.

Your quality of life after a disaster is directly proportional to your level of preparedness. Make a Plan, Get a Kit, Get Informed!

Home made congee made with chicken broth, bean curd and ginko nuts. Drizzled with hot chili sauce. Fantastic!
