I started to post these thoughts in the random thought thread but then I realized it's too important for that. I just received two back-to-back alerts on my iPhone. I don't know if you've ever heard that particular alarm but it's loud loud loud. It's the same alert used for Amber Alerts & tornado warnings. It works! The first one was to remind me that September is disaster alert month & to be prepared for the next disaster. The second one was a link to click for instructions on how to prepare for a disaster kit. This is the first year I've experienced this. I don't know what to say (or feel) except WOW !!
