Okay so as far as I know the sky is not falling but we are experiencing unprecedented “bad” weather world-wide and I can’t get many people to pay attention. I mentioned this before and I’ll do it again. We are not ready for emergencies. Plain and simple. Do you have water stored up? Emergency food stuffs, a medical kit? Do you have a planned meeting place if you can’t get home? Do your kids know what to do in an emergency? You know what the old folks said about an ounce of prevention? In these times of economic uncertainty many of us say that we can’t afford some of the extras but I feel that we can’t afford not to get them. I am not preaching gloom and doom but we just don’t know what will happen. Ask the folks in Joplin and other communities hit in the last year. Buy a few extra dried goods, canned goods, simple first aid products when you can. Make a family plan and go on about your business.
