OK, that was interesting. For about 24-hours it felt like we were living inside a snow globe being shaken around by a four-year-old. If it was at a ski resort, the skiing would have been epic.
I haven’t seen this much snow in Newport ever and the closest comparison for the region would be the blizzard of ’78 when I lived in Mattapoisett. Back then, at age six I had my picture taken by the local newspaper skiing down Ship Street.
During the height of this storm, the wind was howlin’ and it was hard to imagine it ever clearing because storms like this one can make time stand still. And when you lose internet with the first puff of air, you quickly make a mental note of what your day will be like with a full house.
You start checking off boxes in your head when the internet is down. OK, we have cell service, good. We might be able to watch Netflix. These are real-life issues. But in all seriousness, in reality, there’s not much separating you from having food/water/shelter.
I hope your weekend was less eventful. In my conversations with you, you give me a boots-on-the-ground look at life in your neck of the woods. You email what’s on your mind and you text to check-in. But it’s in our regular conversations that I get the intel on your life and what’s going on around you.
When it comes to your money and your life, thankfully, I have a front-row seat. I think you’d be hard pressed to find someone who has more reach across America’s financial landscape, on a most personal level, than me. I know your life because you tell me about it. And because I listen to YOU.
Action Line: My conversations with you provide me with the fabric of your life, and that ties together with my independent research and analysis for you. There’s no formula for what I do. It would be impossible for someone else to replicate our conversations. That’s between you and me. And that’s why I’m Your Survival Guy and not someone else’s. We’re in this together. And remember: The best things in life are free. Sign up for my Survive & Thrive letter and don’t miss the boat.
