My first time here. Gave a class this afternoon and will do a keynote tomorrow morning at the AHIMTA (All-Hazards Incident Management Teams Association) 2012 Conference.
I admit to being impressed. For one thing, the weather has been great — went running this morning in shorts and a T-shirt — and the canal district, where I ran, is really nice. That’s my hotel through the trees.
When you think about all that’s happened over the last year or so, including Hurricanes Sandy and Irene plus the tornadoes in Tuscaloosa and Joplin, it’s hard to think of a more important subject. I’m honored to have been invited.
