Does An Emergency Bring Out The Real You

Saturday evening a hard hitting rain and windstorm swept through New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. A band of wind swept through with hurricane type force yet narrow in focus like a tornado. There are photos online at , for example. Saturday night and Sunday you could see huge trees down blocking roads four lanes across and numerous smaller roads. Power lines, poles, transformers and more were thrown around like confetti on New Year’s eve.
Wide oak trees were thrown like darts through roofs of homes. Families without power, water or heat were finding relatives to go to for a few days or like my family taking refuge in a local hotel. This is a serious disaster, yet not so much when compared to Haiti. Don’t take this to minimize what took place here. There were areas that really looked like a warzone with huge trees and twisted electrical lines and poles strewn all over the place. Still not like Haiti. Emergency utility work crews, firefighters, police and EMT’s had their hands full and still do. Here is the part I am still confused/amazed by. “Towels, We need more towels. Why can’t you understand! We can’t live like this!” We heard this comment and were absolutely
amazed. Another favorite “My food isn’t hot enough.
How can you serve ME food like this and expect me to eat it!” My question is this, what are you really like? Does an emergency situation bring out the real you? In my heart I believe I would trust being with an entrepreneur during a time like this as they are resilient, they are ready for a curveball or two, and they never quit.
