Yes, there is a storm a brewing.
The weatherman has been forecasting for days.
Right now, the storm clouds are forming and will bare down on us soon.
We have drinking water on hand and I tested our generator.
Cars are gassed up and we have plenty of food to last a long time.
Yes, we go overboard...maybe, but when I look at those that lose everything or just have heavy damage I know that I am ready if the need arises.
The need may not be for us but a friend or neighbor.
It is a personal decision, but I don't like being unprepared.
It may look calm, but it is the calm before the storm.
