As a WOW, I have lived through multiple “natural disasters.” A number of hurricanes blew through my home town back in the 50’s. Also endured hiding under my desk in school because an Atomic Bomb was feared. Blizzards hit Pennsylvania then too and not that I live in Colorado are what most likely will hole me up again. Then there was 911 and its aftermath when we ratcheted up our emergency plans, with the biggest problem what to do with Whisper if I was downtown and David at home. Decided David and Whisper should head for the hills and as I had Crisis Team license and training to work in a an attack, I would go where I could help. We would eventually reconnect at Zach’s. Nothing happened, the people of Katrina weren’t so lucky. Do you have a true disaster plan? It is important.
