Since my relocation from the Degussa Corporate office located in New Jersey to one of Degussa's largest production facilities on the Gulf coast of Alabama (1992), I have experienced four hurricanes. Just in case you didn't know, Degussa is a major chemical supplier. Coming from New Jersey to the Gulf coast of Alabama has been more exciting than I could ever have imagined. I kind of had the impression that my life and activities would be laid back. You know how they say "been there, done that" my expression is "being here, didn't expect this".
