Prepare for the Worst





Every day, and I mean every day, I think about what I would do if disaster struck. It's the kids and being sixty miles or so away from them during the work day. I once knew someone who after being stranded with no gas during an earthquake wouldn't drive on less than a quarter tank. I need to be doing that.



I need to be doing lots of things. I already knew that before I found 72hours.org while researching something today. I bookmarked it because emergency preparedness is on my list. To relax this evening, I played on the site. Good god. This was not a relaxing activity at all. Don't do this if you want to relax.



At the top of the homepage is Are You Prepared? And the answer is I Doubt It. There are disasters that no emergency kit can help, but if it does, how much would you regret not dealing? Or, maybe I'm behind on this, and everyone else already has their extra pair of shoes and flashlight ready to go near their beds.
