Having lived through a major earthquake in my life, it really is wise to "prepare" within reason, for the "worst"....The Op's "instinct" is to
have some supplies on hand, is very smart...reguardless of "devine" intervention...which I do believe in.....ask any fireman or other emergency
worker, and they will tell you that in a SHTF senerio, they will be overwelmed, and the more prepared individual homes are to "weather" the storm
will greatly lessen the "impact" of what may happen.
I keep thinking about some old joke about the guy stranded on a dessert island, and he fails to see that God had given him several "changes" to be
rescused.....and he didn't get it......
It's so wierd thinking about my memories of this earthquake, I was 7 yrs old, it happened in Sylmar CA, it was REALLY bad, our house was trashed, no
power or water for weeks, my Mom, who is the the coolest, most honorable woman you could meet, was devastated, and I will NEVER forget my Dad running
in our room, sis and I shared a room with bunk-beds, he grabbed us both, lol, I remember the earth still shaking as he ran down the hall to my parents
bedroom....I was sooo scared when I saw my Mom's face......she was freaked out.
Anyways...the cooperation and Love that I experienced deeply effects me to this day....our neighborhood pulled together...and it's really quite
beautiful....The Men...gotta love them....made sure all the gas and stuff was turned off....and barbacued thier hearts out in the middle of the
street, and all us kids were fed. The Mom's cleaned up the mess, everything was broken, dishes, just glass everywhere, sidewalks and buildings,
including hospital just trashed..people died...it really is still somewhat "surreal"...but it happened...
Geez my intention is never to promote fear, I just want us all to be prepared...I do have a couple of cases of water in my garage, lol, and I fill up
old bleach bottles with water....yup I even date them......The one thing that made a big difference in the earthquake we lived through, is that a few
neighbors had pools, lmao...we all had to go get a bucket of water to to go "potty"....it worked, pouring a bucket of water in the tolient would
Oh My Goodness,,,,God Bless us...♥
