    I bet my to do list is bigger than most. I'm constantly choosing between things that have to get done and things that I want to get done. The things that I want to get done often get pushed down on the list, so that things that have to get done can be taken care of. Getting doors on my storm...

    Luckily the story is mostly crisis averted. We had a tornado warning in our area and headed to the basement. Luckily we faired pretty well, the tornado touched down few miles away in an open field and didn't do any catastrophic damage. Our neighborhood was however pummeled by 60 MPH wind and...

    I'm sure everyone heard about the recent outbreak of tornadoes which devastated Eastern Ky last Friday. I've been offline for the last few days as the local grid recovers from the damage. My family myself and my close neighbors are all fine. Except for a 2" diameter limb impaling my camper, my...

    I got the idea for this thread after viewing some of the recent posts about Hurricane Irene. The general public takes a lot of things for granted: electricity, the ability to travel without disruption, being able to use cell phones/credit and debit cards, etc. What lessons have you learned...

    Earthquake, Tornado, Safe Room In the DIY forum I started a thread on Building A Safe Room in Your House. That got me to thinking about the level of damage and loss of life in the recent disasters. Most homes and building seem to be standard frame construction that can be blown to bits by any...

    I live in an area that has been hit by several small tornadoes, no where near what has happened in the Mid-west. We have a farm with a good many acres so space is not a problem. The farm house is solid 36"+ field stone walls that have stood for more than 150 years. BUT - I have an aged mother...

    I couldn’t be more annoyed. In an effort to help the girlfriend wake up I drug her to a Red Cross presentation last night that was centered on emergency preparedness. It was so full of misinformation and outright bad advice that I couldn’t sit still. Among the information and suggestions they...

    A bit long .... So today is the 39th anniversary of the Lubbock Tornado. I knew it was going to be a strange day that day. I had been bragging to friends on the playground that since I was part Indian I could do an effective rain dance. I spun in circles like a dervish until I got into a...
