If you crave danger and excitement you may want to reconsider working with FEMA. :(

I've been working in St. Louis for the past 2 weeks. Auto this time. I hope this is just the beginning.

Why take every assignment? Nonsense to that. Kile in your position maybe yes, maybe No. Really depends on just how bad you want to work. If you are good then you should get to choose who you work for. Not the other way around.

Kyle, I have found that if you are not careful, you might not get a day off for months. Just certify for everything you can and take every assignment that comes along.....and the most important thing is to do the very best you can on every assignment, so you will get called back. Hang in there!

That kind of answers my question then I guess. If this is different from the past three decades I guess it is bound to end soon. Let's just hope it was a fluke of nature and things get back to normal, at least for a while. I hear there were hail storms in Arkansas, Florida, and North Carolina this weekend. Maybe the light at the end of the tunnel isn't a train after all.

That's just it, we don't know what a 'Normal Occurance' is anymore. From my hysterical perspective, the 70's, 80's and 90's seemed to have a certain regularity of storms about them. But since Y2K, we don't know what's happened. Increasingly, it looks like we were the only ones that got Y2k'd!

I'm new to this business. Floyd was my first storm and I've only worked one other storm since then, a hail storm in Indiana last spring/summer. I've managed to keep my skills sharp and the creditors at bay by doing scope work for an engineering company that specializes in flood mitigation.

What I really want to know from you grizzled old war veterans, is this dry spell we've been in for the past couple of years a normal occurrence? Does it happen every 10 years or every 5 years? I've got to believe that by now the odds are in our favor. Mother Nature usually doesn't rest for long. Just curious.
