With the shift in seasons - weather becomes even more important.
- There are more tornadoes.
- There are more major wind storms with average gust now over 65mph..
- There are more floods because it rains harder. At this time, in 2014, i can not
think of 1 American that does not need flood insurance...
- Hurricane season starts earlier & earlier. Lasts longer. Heavier Rain.
- Fire Season ! ! ! Used to be here, only in the West. now everywhere.
The point for writing this, is to remind everyone, to make a PDF copy
of important papers and store them as "DRAFT" emails; or on
your "Cloud Storage".

would need in weather evacuation and wanted FEMA to help you.
is on-line and FEMA would transfer money for lodging / food/ clothing ]
Also, bring along a cancelled blank check so you know routing numbers . . . . .
This is a partial list and hopefully gets you thinking.
A friend of mine who could tell horror stories about Katrina and her family...
OMG - Nightmare. I promised i would learn from her and her Pain,
Frustration and Suffering. She & her husband argued as to whether
they had StateFarm or Allstate Insurance. They agreed "State"
was in the title, but getting through to anyone was impossible.
She has since died from cancer. Really, really, painful last few years
dealing with all kinds of insurance, and trying to re-build everything.
So - Be Proactive.
Keep bottled water and power bars hidden in the back of your car.
[or replenish if your eat everything]
Keep a shovel during Snow & Fire Season.
C A S H $ $ $ $
Keep a cash stash at home. If there is a HUGE emergency;
wave CASH and you go the Front of the Line. Even in semi-normal
weather - bank card machines go out in local settings so magnify
You need GAS... Cash.
Food for Children - Cash
Cheap Hotel for couple days till "Storm" passes - Cash.

I think all of you know that one of my hero's this Lifetime, is the Buddha.
He taught that Suffering - is optional. Boy - do i agree with that.
So if reading this, helps to diminish your pain & suffering - even alittle,
Buddha would be thrilled i think.
and my old, fave employer may also have some words of wisdom for you.
