    How's the weather? I have been checking out reports on how so many were not prepared for the storm.

    It's just really cold...and yes I agree...so many people are not prepared for this weather.
    I always travel with back up supplies and emergency gear. Never let my fuel tank below 3/4 full....food ...water...BOB....GHB....back up heat...etc
    I bet a lot of people have learned a lesson....be prepared
    It's better to have and not need.....than to need and not have :)

    Welcome to the monkey!

    And, no, there wont be a lot of people that learned a lesson. They will complain about how the government didn't do enough to protect them. Heard the mayor of Atlanta say that he made a mistake in ordering all businesses and schools closed at the same time and that is what caused the grid lock on the freeways. While I'm sure it contributed to it, it was not the cause, it was the ice.

    I grew up in MN, and my parents made sure I always had emergency stuff in the car, and I keep that same mentality here. Yes in the south it can be below freezing for days on end and you need to be prepared. Just like we need to prepare for the hot summers.

    I agree with you that it's better to have and not need than need and not have.
