Calm Before the Storm
We have some murky sunshine out there with low clouds, no winds, and nice temps. And here's what I'm reading on Facebook/Twitter..."The weather's fine here. This is just more media hype..."
There's a reason "calm before the storm" is a cliche. Most big storms have a period of deep calm before they roar in to smack you. And that's a good thing. It allows time to prepare for the aftermath. Trust me, it is NOT a sign that the storm won't be bad.
For those who have survived bad storms, whether tornadoes, blizzards, ice storms or hurricanes, preparation is key to walking away with your life. If you haven't started, get busy. And don't be fooled by where Sandy's headed. Check out your local recommendations and do what they say.
Here's what I don't understand. Actual preparation doesn't really take that much time. And it requires minimal money. So why wouldn't you be prepared? If everyone just did the minimum that's recommended, more people would live through these storms. Isn't your life worth that bit of time?
Heads up. Time is running out.
