One of the duties of my job is to be a Red Cross Volunteer. Even though I have been there 5 years, I have never actually had to do it. And an oddly-timed communication outage apparently meant that I was excused during Charley.
This time, things are different. I will be one of 5 people operating a shelter at South Florida Community College from noon today until a project noon on Monday. As long as my cell phone works, I will try to remember to post periodically about the experience.
