Default Ok, so what do we do with somethink minor like a hurricane?

Got you're basic water, candles, dried top raman noodles, spam, canned vegetables and fruits , batteries, flashlights, generator, extra gas, radios, cell phone with internet access, including weather and e-mail, battery charger for said cell phone, 22 lr. Live far enough out where there is plenty of wood for fires. Matter of fact, live far enough inland, probably won't have to worry about hurricanes, which is why we chose this area when we moved down from the Chicago area. Things needed, 12 gauge for mocassins and rattlers, 45 for peace of mind. Anything we're missing?

Funny you should mention hurricanes. I went to a briefing on disaster preparedness earlier today. The guest speaker for the morning session is the Police Chief for Slidell, LA. His people are supposed to have enough stuff ready for 10 days. He also didn't have many nice things to say about FEMA - the other "F" word.

Yeah, so long as the mayor doesn't illegally declare that citizens all of a sudden cannot be trusted with firearms and must turn them into police. Having all the supplies in the world won't matter then, because you will not likely survive, either due to getting killed, or your supplies robbed and you starve. They can have my guns and ammo, but they will get the bullets first!

You didn't happen to ask him about Mayor Nagin's gun confiscation, did you?

In spite of what the media and conventional wisdom might say, FEMA actually mobilized more people and materials in less time than during any other disaster. It surely wasn't a perfect operation, but natural disaster coordination never will be. It sounds like that Chief was either bashing Bush or, like so many in NO, expecting someone else to take care of him.

60 miles from the Atlantic, 80 miles from the Gulf, but with a brand new metal roof, I'm hoping it will hold up to the few trees we have around. Saw the special with Mayor Negans gun confiscation, where the sam hill did he get off with that?

LOL, that's why I left Norther Illinois. Northern Florida actually gets color changes on the leaves, without getting the snowfall. Enjoy.

Randy, I hope you meant watch the snow fall OUTSIDE the double window and not THROUGH the double window. That could get cold. Enjoy.
