The people who complain about our prepping, have not been through a hurricane with power going out while the wind is trying to tear up your house. Ike was in the middle of the night but no one was sleeping through that. It was a very large storm so it went on for hours with those 100 mph winds.

You don't know if your power will come back in one day or one month. You don't know if your water out of the faucet is safe to drink. If you have a tree in the middle of your house, and it didn't kill you, you are thankful.

Anyone who has been through a situation like that, and doesn't prepare for it the next time, is not smart enough to live, and may not the next time.

And, some of these people think we want it to happen. I dread hurricane season every year - I do not want that to happen. From June through October, I know if I want to live and have good water and food and be cool and be able to cook, I had better be prepared. People who don't, are fools.

You are soooo right. At least you get some advance notice. We have tornadoes with little or no warning. We have a basement, but I would like to have it reinforced.

That’s a Hubby job, and he isn’t moving very fast on it.
