State Government Slumber Party!!

So, Massachusetts is expecting a few more inches of rain and the decision was made to activate our State Emergency Operations Center. This is the building I work in.

It's 40 feet underground, with no windows and two large blast doors on either side. There is a 2-person morgue, and the buildings rests on springs in case of earthquake or nuclear detonation. I'd like to tell you that it's in a secret location, known only to me and the Governor. However someone spelled out the agency's name in shrubbery a long time ago, thus ending a lot of the mystique.

So I'm here until 8AM. Just me and this really nice guy Peter, who's our Public Information Officer. I just wolfed down some Taco Bell, so I'm ready for any emergency they can throw at me.

Go ahead....give me your best shot.

Chuck offered to pull 24-hr MEMA duty so that you could enjoy your weekend, but turned down his offer, mentioning that you were the only man that could do the job.

it was a big blow to chuck's fledgling ego....

Funny Hadler, I remember no such conversation. However....I am the only man who could handle that job. I'm not sure a cute farm boy like him could handle being underground for that amount of time.
