New York and New Jersey Get To Experience The Grid Down Environment

The stories from tonight's Drudge Report on the situation in the storm ravaged Northeast:

The headline tonight, however, is this:


Here we are, the richest nation on Earth, with the most powerful military on Earth, with people  dumpster diving and living without gasoline for days, dodging fake ConEd employees and people with guns. 

This is our America.

I don't mean to come across as mean spirited - note that just last night I told you I'd lived in a grid down environment for days after Hurricane Andrew.  Yet to this day I still struggle to comprehend how so many people in America could be so ill-prepared for a storm they knew was coming towards them. 

Don't be these people.  Please.  Prepare yourself and your family, if for no other reason you're not the one dumpster diving when the TV crew shows up.

Here's One Way To Help Get You Started

Our friends at Emergency Essentials have put together some great information on preparedness fundamentals.  Quick reading with examples of situations you may encounter - good resource for yourself or others.
