I don't recall another era when so many of my fellow citizens were as oblivious to what is happening around them. There's a willful determination to ignore anything that requires thought, planning, or decision making. Maybe we're simply worn out, but if so, then we're truly in a dangerous situation.
In any case, if you're in the projected path of this particular storm (Sandy), it would probably be a good idea to stock up on whatever you think you might need. You know--batteries, water, flashlight, meds, things you can eat without cooking in case the electricity goes out. If you're one of those with stuff out in the yard, patio, balcony, bring it in or secure it. And most importantly, don't wait until the last day to make a shopping run.
Figure out where you're going to go if you have to evacuate. Make sure your family knows your plans so they don't worry. Fill the gas tank on your vehicle.
And if it all blows by without slapping your area, be thankful, say a prayer for those who weren't so fortunate, and enjoy Halloween.
