Every year we get hit with a few major storms and it seems that at the last minute everyone is running to the store to pick up some basic essentials to ride out a few days without power.  I go to the store just to take pictures that I share with my friends, we laugh because the shelves where the bottled water was are all empty, the paper goods such as plates, napkins, and toilet paper have vanished.  It seems that nobody is planning for the inevitable hurricane, or tropical storms that we get EVERY YEAR.  The day before the storm people … (8 comments)
