Happy New Year.
With 2012 fresh on the minds of everyone, I think it's appropriate we talk about the apocalypse and what you can do to survive it.
Also, you need to get your family together. I'm not talking about your cousin down south who you haven't seen since the reunion back in '95. I mean the here and now people who you can trust and rely on. The best time to do this is well in advance of the tsunami if you can. Safety in numbers.
Finally, stock smart. The CDC recommends food and water for two weeks for an emergency situation. That is assuming, of course, that the government is around to pick up the pieces after a disaster. Short term provisions will undoubtedly be needed to get yourself acclimated. But, long term, plan for cheaply gotten water filtration systems, seeds, soil, and fertilizer.
