    Things are getting exiictng!!! We all know it's coming - I just have a difficult time thinking about the elderly, the poor, the children - who will suffer without heat or food or whatever. We can be prepared, but we can't take care of everyone else! I guess we just keep spreading the word and educating the best we can and more and more will be prepared.
