Todays tornado

Well I live one street over from today's tornado that struck Port Orange, neighbors have debris from the damaged homes in there yards.

Man, it was a wild ride. I was eating dinner while the winds blew all around my home. I did worry briefly about my ham radio tower (45ft tall then 12feet above that in antennas) but it has survived hurricanes for the last 7 years.

So this got me thinking more about how to be better prepared for these natural disasters. While we live in an area that is very prone to hurricanes so we understand. But I must admit that I have become complacent. So it is time to redraw family plans, emergency procedures, be stocked as to be self sufficient for a week, trim trees, and take out the generator and cycle the gas.

Are you up to date?

As soon as I moved back to Florida I bought a minature propane grill and propane gas canisters as well as flashlights and plenty of batteries.

I'm glad you're okay. :drinks

Here in Tampa, about two weeks ago, we had terrible thunderstorms which ended up flooding my area. We were under Tornado Warning for quite some time.

Scary stuff.

Since Gustov (sp??) last year, I've drilled holes in my wooden fence and wrapped nylon rope through the middle of the panels and around 4x4 posts to anchor them to the ground. I can't afford an increase in my insurance policy due to my fence flying through my neighbors back window. :D
