Thank you to your and your wife for your help in Joplin. It is my hometown, and my family was caught up in the storm. I never knew there was so much goodness in the universe as wrapped my town and my family in a hug the aftermath. Quite a lesson for a card-carrying cynic. To pay it forward, I am writing a book about the long-term recovery (physical health, mental health - short-term and long-term, jobs, the economy, politics, the rebuilding, the challenges). People in other cities will want to know how they can prepare and respond. Thanks again to you and all the other volunteers.Nice to meet everyone. I've been a weather fanatic ever since I experienced the Joplin tornado. My wife and I volunteered for weeks afterward and it changed my life. My wife is a science teacher so we bounce things off of each other all of the time. Thank you, everyone, for sharing your knowledge and creating an atmosphere for everyone to learn and ultimately become better and safer storm chasers.
