On the way out, let me thump the drum of your preparations for disaster or hard times. They're coming. We've seen (again) what a weather event can do to unprepared areas and their inhabitants.

Maybe the don't happen today, tomorrow or in the next year--but they will happen. Get ready now while it's still easy to do.
