A timely piece

This is a very timely and relevant piece, Ann. It does seem that unexpected occurences and natural disasters that affect a lot of people are on the rise, or at least have the greater potential to affect a lot of people due to their proximity to populated areas. It is so important to have plans and products in place for preparedness. I know I am a homeowner in a place that is susceptible to quakes (as well as tsunamis, though I am on high ground), and I don't think I am really prepared. It would be great to learn more.

Liz, I totally agree. Living in a rural area, I usually experience at least a couple hours-long power outages each winter, sometimes even lasting a few days. I've also lived through a major earthquake, and the Rodney King riots in LA, both of which taught me the importance of preparedness--and of living on high ground. I think it's easier to do that here than in a city, where so much depends on others, mostly big bureaucracies. I'm glad Gabay decided to do this course, and I expect to learn a lot from it.
