We were looking at hurricane pictures today when this came in from Reuters. I was immediately attracted to it. I thought, "Wow, look at those two guys right up against a flood wall. We've got to use this picture." In fact, we did use it for a little while until I realized that the people in the picture are our very own Jim Seida and Mike Brunker. Jim and Mike seem to be at their best when conditions are at their worst.
