September is National Preparedness Month

Well, alas, September is almost over and I have just now learned that September is National Preparedness Month.

Oh well, ‘better late than never’.

So, whether one prepares on Sept 1 or Sept 30, it is still a good thing to prepare.

Prepare for what? you ask.

Well, much of a person’s preparation depends on where one lives.

Those living on the east coast and by the Gulf of Mexico prepare first for hurricanes.

In the center of the country, folks prepare for tornadoes.

On the west coast people worry about earthquakes.

And then there are the general things that lots of folks also experience such as power outages, realllly cold weather, bad thunderstorms, etc. etc. etc.
