So, after a really bad wind last night, I guess 2 million homes and businesses in Ohio didn't have power today. We did. How nice.
My VT came to check on me. I checked on the people I visit teach. Is that our ward's emergency situation plan? It seems like it should work. But how would I have contacted them if I hadn't had a phone or car?
We only know two of our neighbors. (We only have two actual "neighbors"- tons of the houses around here are foreclosed on and empty.)
I've got an appointment to go do food storage in a few weeks. We're using up the stuff we got for Christmas a few years ago. Some of it past the expired date already, but it's still good.
We keep getting wake up calls and finding ourselves generally unprepared for an emergency longer than a few days.
