Yesterday was a tough day in the South East. Storms ripped across the state of Tennessee laying waste to many homes and at least 11 lives. Luckily we live in the valley and most of the storms break up coming through the plateau so the worst we saw was some heavy rain and a 5 hour long power outage. Nashville got 13″ of rain in two days which was more than twice the previous record. Keep those families who are dealing with flooding or the loss of loved ones in your minds as you go through your day today. Nature is a fickle thing and it doesn’t care what the balance of your bank account is.
For those of you who do care, here is my Net Worth update for the month. We picked up some temporary credit card debt paying for an upcoming trip to see my cousin get married. It will be paid off before the bill comes this month. Otherwise things are still on the up and up, I opened my investing account this past month and have already lost $12! Go me.
