I was born in the 50's and my parents taught me by word and example to prepare for inclimate weather and storms. I learned to fill up the car with gas, store water for drinking, cooking, and light cleaning, have candles, batteries, portable radio, blankets, and non-perishable food. I do this every year - plus I fill up my tub and pots and pans with water when a storm is coming. I get teased about over-reacting, but I'm prepared! Maybe my family should learn by my example?
