Day 2

(continued from last post)

Day 2 ended up being even better than the first day. I went out on a story with Patrick Center about gas and electrical bills and what to do (and what people are doing) when their service is cut off. We went to the house of a woman who had her gas cut off, and she had a 7-year-old son and 15-year-old daughter who was mutliply-disabled with cerebral palsy. It was a sad story, but as cliche as it sounds, it was a great story, both for emotional value and as a testament to human spirit. (I really can't believe I said that, but it's entirely true.) I then came back and watched the process Patrick went through to write the story and put it together with his video. The day wrapped up with me watching the 6 pm news IN the studio, and then wrapped up the time with working the assignment desk.

Day 3 continues as I type, more to come later!
