"Always Be Prepared", the Boy Scout Motto is certainly the way to go: when dealing with anxious concerns about natural or man-made disasters or, for
that matter, life in general.
Of course, it isn't easy to be prepared for all the different contingencies that can happen. At best, it's simply important -- and prudent -- to be
prepared for the things that you can actually envision or affect as a likely eventuality.
Right now, speaking as an "anxious" individual, what I feel as something that is impending is an economic collapse or, at the least, crisis. In
preparation, I do maintain a supply of basic food items (left over MRE's from my Y2K period certainly helps) and a bit of cash. If there is some
sort of an economic collapse, at least I will be able to get by for a little while while I wait for the dust to settle.
Funny, I was just thinking about how coping with a natural disaster would actually be easier than trying to deal with a man-made one: an economic
collapse such as the bank failures and depression of the twenties seem to be more daunting than coping with the aftermath of an earthquake or storm.
At least I can understand a natural disaster.
