What with the blizzard of the century striking the already wounded NE US, I think one should take stock of how well prepared they are for natural disasters...

We have already several threads about this topic but I fear many of them will go the way of the dodo with the data stripping that is now going on. The most recent (and most likely to survive) link is here: http://www.ivillage.com/forums/home-garden/decorating-home-improvement/decorating-and-home-improvement/home-inspiration/emergency-preparedness... but you might also want to check out the Red Cross Pages and FEMA  to see if you are equipped to ride out a natural disaster.

And one thing a lady who was interviewed on the national news said last night really hit close to home for me... she made it through Sandy only to find that, while she THOUGHT she was well prepared, a month's supply of essentials would have been more useful than the three-day supply she had on hand. Note to self: stock up...
