As I write this, Hurricane Irma is making landfall at the tip of Southern Florida. Here in Georgia, current projections say my home, and family, are lucky enough to not get hit by the storm at its most powerful, but it’s now tracking to be a Category 3, hopefully a 2, upon its arrival in my quiet little town.
That means I’ve got precious little time to get my house, and wife (who is joyously in her third trimester of pregnancy) ready for just about anything. Being in this line of work means I’ve already got a fair amount of the emergency preparation work done, but as I’m sure many of our readers can attest, dangerous situations rarely play out the way we anticipate, and even those of us with a good deal of training in how to handle a high stakes situation can benefit from reminders now and again.
