HOMELESS BUT STILL A FRIEND

IF YOU WERE WONDERING
As you know from my last post.
I was alone at the center
when Delta hit.
When the power went out that night, the generator kicked on, but did not feed power into the center.
I called the Safe-in-Shreveport Generator Supervisor to inform him of the situation.
He asked me to climb the storm wall one-handed with a flashlight in the other, fighting 96-110 mph winds,
Take off the middle panel one handed,
put my hand into a running generator as torrential rains poured into it through the open panel,
and turn the Toggle Switch, whatever the heck that is,
from Auto to Run, while standing on top of the storm wall,
trying not to be flung off the slippery stone by the tremendous winds.
"Trust me," he said.
He said that three other times in other suicidal orders during the weekend.
I politely refused each time any of his orders seemed hazardous to my health.

LAST MAN STANDING
I feel a bit like Gordon at Khartoum ...
though it happens to be hurricane winds and water surging towards me.
