This storm missed us here in Florida. In past hurricanes, there has been very little looting. Police tend to have a serious presence in damaged areas...and many locals are standing by. Many Floridians are carrying and looters seem to know that.

Get ready for what? During the Ice Storm of 2009 my hometown went without power or water for almost two weeks. I've never seen more acts of kindness, patience, generosity & concern in my 40 years of adulthood. Natural disasters don't create chaos or invite anarchy, they just amplify the habits, emotions & character that's already present in a locale BEFORE things go squirrelly. Get out and HELP folks who aren't in a position to help themselves or YOU! Go show YOUR OWN character before asking anyone else to do anything else. Become the solution that you wish to see. Funny thing about life, you usually get what you...EXPECT.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
