A couple weeks ago we experienced severe weather in my area. After all it’s a part of summer that we’ve come to accept. There was the usual thunder, lightning and extremely high winds. When severe weather is approaching I make sure I’m prepared just in case. You might think I’m nuts but one of the first things I do is to make sure that I’m wearing proper footwear. This means that if I’m wearing slippers I put on my sneakers. Why? Because heaven forbid my home is damaged I don’t want to cut my feet walking through debris. The safe room in my home is my master closet so I always keep a flashlight & extra batteries in there. My four legged family members (the cat & the dog) of course have to go into the closet with me, as well as the cat’s carrier and dog’s harness & leash. I also take my purse and cell & a cordless phone.
My question to you is, do you and/or your family have a plan? Do you have a safe room or rooms in your home? Do you have emergency supplies on hand that you or family members can quickly grab?

Don’t wait until something happens before you take action. Take action NOW!
