This was a great wake-up call.
One of my husband's co-workers was terribly unprepared. His truck was almost empty - enough gas to get to the gas station, but the pumps aren't working. He had no cash on hand, and the debit machines are down. It's easy to think, 'Rookie!' But, how many in your area are really ready for something small like this to happen let alone something major?
It just goes to show how a little blip in the electrical delivery system can catch the unprepared with their pants down.
I was very thankful, and maybe feeling just a teensy bit smug this morning, when I reached into our cash box and handed my husband his lunch money.
Continue with emergency preparations, even if a little at a time.
