    How would you prepare yourself for a natural disaster?

    Living in a place that seldom has issues like this, I don't think of it too often.

    This is not to say that I feel myself as well as everyone else should be prepared for something that can happen. Even a power outage that lasts more than half a day can cause issues. When I was in my teens, I remember we had one that lasted 3 days. Most people just weren't prepared for it. Just simply stocking battlers, water, matches, and so on can make a world of difference.

    How would you prepare for a natural disaster? Do you have a plan already for it?

    Over here in the boondocks of New Jersey, nothing ever happens... so this isn't something I've given much thought to. However, I think my response to the situation would really depend on whether or not I knew the disaster was coming. In a scenario where I had time to prepare, I would probably just box everything up in big plastic containers, drag it all into the attic or basement (depending on what kind of disaster it was), and then just fuck off to a hotel 100 miles away until things blew over. If the event just randomly occurred though, and I had no time for preparation, I would simply fill a backpack with as many meaningful possessions as possible and then, again, fuck off to somewhere very far away. Maybe I'd go visit Zemekis over in PA and we could share a Yuengling.

    I think most natural disasters are dangerous not because people can't avoid them, but because they choose not to. So many people are stupid and ignore evacuation warnings before something happens. Outside of a few treasured heirlooms and baubles, material possessions are absolutely worthless to me, so I have no issue getting up and leaving on a whim. Objects are replaceable, but your life isn't. Sometimes I kind of wish something disastrous would happen just so I'd have a reason to start fresh.

    Yeah your last statement seems valid with a lot of people who live in Florida. So many times, people just stay behind even when hurricanes are going to be destructive. I don't think it is worth it.

    There's a reason you were Member of the Month, lol. Sounds good, even if my food stockpile runs out my bullets and Yuengling won't so we should be safe. They don't call it Pennsatucky for nothing.

    Korin brought up Florida & hurricanes which do allow for several days (even 1 week+) of notice before they hit. I grew up in Kansas where you get maybe 5-10 mins before a twister lands and vaporizes you. When I was really young it was the worst because I had no concept of tornadoes, so the power would go out while I was sleeping and then I'd get woken up at 2 or 3am in the pitch darkness with howling wind and a siren blaring. My parents would grab me out of bed in the darkness and run me down to the basement where we would sit in the dark or with a candle and listen to a battery-powered radio. I can still remember the eerie red glow of the radio's red "power" light. I'm shocked that I don't have nightmares of that whole scenario but somehow it never phased me beyond being a bit scared at the moment it was occurring.
