I made it to the chicken coop with a load of water and back with fresh eggs and an armful of wood, and no broken hip! Well if you live anywhere in the central or eastern U.S., odds are you are in or preparing for some winter weather. Were all set, with our food storage and emergency supplies there was not much needed. The tornado that hit our town years back, taught me that I was going to be prepared for the worst. We do always have the New Madrid earth quake looming over us. If we ever got the big one our little town would be on it's own for a long time I think. Though I still like to delude myself that as long as I have Earthquake insurance it won't be happening.
