I'll take hurricanes over earthquakes any day.
Thankfully, I have never experienced any kind of natural disaster.
God bless you always!!!
P.S. I was once hit by lightning, (The car I was in got hit.) but obviously I lived to tell about it. The car had to be replaced, but in the grand scheme of course that is very little to complain about.
or those Midwest F5 tornadoes ...those things are murderous and you have minutes to prepare
HUGO in 1989.
Charlie, Wilma, Irma.
^Those were the worst
It seems one only remembers the serious ones. Probably several more that were kind of a snoozefest.
a few including Wilma. My daughter gave birth during that one.
got caught, with two young kids in the car, drive to PA during Andrew
Nice thing about sand storms, at least is Saudi, are the desert roses. Best thing is to leave them alone, and keep growing.
You should get an emergency hand pump, they run about $700 depending on the depth of your well. At a /bare/ minimum get a well bucket (Lemans has those for < $100) If you're really hard up for cash do this - Make your own deep well bucket - Preparedness AdvicePreparedness Advice and stow it for emergency.
I've been through lots of earthquakes (I think the biggest was an 8.6, broke some of my carousel horses,) hid in the basement from fear of a tornado (it ripped through a corn field a few miles away and gave us dinner,) I've been hit by lightning (close enough anyway, it hit the air conditioner in the window as I was rounding the corner of my bio-dad's house and chucked me clean across the yard into the garage; knocked me out for a good while.)
The worst "disaster" I've had to deal with was actually the ash fallout from Helen's, I'm still cleaning that shit out of my furniture... I remember it was so bad that they recommended you not drive at all because it was eating car engines. Air filters were packed, the shit got into the oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze and just chowdered everything. Then it snowed... or maybe it rained... either way, I made the mistake of turning on the windshield wipers - ended up buying a new windshield an hour later...
One of my friends at work had the worst luck during the hurricane. He had two pictures mounted on the wall behind his desk.
One picture was of his house near the beach. The tidal storm surge that came off the Gulf was 20 foot high and flattened his home.
The other picture was his brand new pickup truck. He had relatives who lived around 100 miles inland. So he drove to their place and parked the pickup next to their house to keep it safe from the hurricane. Unfortunately, one of the large oak trees in the yard was uprooted by the high winds and crushed the truck. ....
