|Trees - Friend or foe?|
We were under a state of emergency for almost two days, as many roads were impassible right after the storm.
In fact, on the route you have to take to my mother in law's complex, a tree fell on top of a house. It wasn't completely removed until yesterday.
Another local relative was able to take my mother in law and "Bil" in temporarily, and it made me think.
I wish I could be great at organization, and for anticipating. And maybe I could wish for the ability to see into the future, while I'm busy wishing.
Our loved ones were not prepared with bottled water or with adequate flashlights/lanterns.
Why hadn't we thought of that? For that matter, we weren't that prepared, either. We can (and have) had Bil stay over, but we aren't equipped for an overnight stay of my mother in law.
|Imagine this tree falling on your car|
Today, I went online, and found these two sources - one for those like Bil, who are autistic - and one for pet owners.
Now, all we have to do, with everything else swirling around us, is implement some of these suggestions. Just one more thing to add to our "to do" list.
Prepare for disaster.
