The cost of being prepared
Did you see the Hurricane Guide we published the other day? It comes out every year on or near June 1, the beginning of hurricane season. Along with a lovely multicolor map of evacuation routes and a fun list of 2002 hurricane names (Dolly? Teddy? Wilfred?!), it's packed with advice on how to prepare for a natural disaster. You know, all that stuff you don't want to think about. Like plywood and bathtubs full of water and nonfunctional ATMs.
