A major storm hit my little town here in W.va. last friday at about 7:30pm with hurricane-force winds.
Me, my wife, and our three kids were stopping by Gino's to pick up pizza's that we ordered, when all of a sudden, the sky turned black as soot.
We get this all the time in the Mid-West. I love these storms. They are a sight to see.

So what would you recommend for people to prepare for such a future emergency?

How could you not be prepared without electricity in your house? Was there not enough food in your cupboards for a week? Not enough water? You needed propane? I guess our versions of camping differ, while yours isn't exactly roughing it....... I would welcome a power outage it would get the rest of my family to stop watching tv/computer and get them out to tell some good scary stories by a campfire while eating hotdogs and beans....

I went so crazy I actually started playing bored games.
