My Old Hurricane Post Re-Linked

For those who need a recap... my original WHAT YOU NEED post for a hurricane.

I should have done this two days ago...

I think I have done most of those things, as they apply to me. I don't drive, f'rinstance. The National Guard has been dispatched, so, I guess I am kind of trying to suppress my hysteria.

Erica- The National Guard was dispatched for a couple reasons. They bring in supplies. You'll have a lot of folks who do NOTHING. They're the Nanny State people who expect to be taken care of. They'll be out there immediately with their hands out asking where their water and food is.

After few days, everyone starts to run low on water and food. After a week, absolutely.

The Nat'l Guard will also give out ice. There will be place you're told to pick up these supplies, ice, water, MREs.

But they are also there as you're going to have an upsurge in looting. THAT is what I'd be the most concerned about. Everything else will work it's way out... but the looting will be an issue.
