Weather Dangers

10 Jun

I sure hope it is not going to rain this weekend.

 The federal governement has lots of useful information that you can subscribe to. It is on the www.USA.gov website. On Tuesday they send out information on assembling an emergency kit and a plan of action. I rememeber there being something about as a requirement on one of our sons scout badge requirements years ago. Boy Scouts was always a learning project and it is so beneficial for boys to be in scouting.

Luckily we don’t have to worry about earthquakes, tornadoes or hurricanes in MnN or at least now.

Extreme heat can occur. That’s why it is important “to spend the hottest part of the day in an air conditioned building such as a library or shopping mall. They say you should drink plenty of water and limit your physical exertion.”

I don’t know if we ever have wild fires around here. We have house and building fires. We should always have an emeregency kit with copies of important documents. How many of have copies of our important documents someplace else? In a safe place?

We can have lighning in bad weather. The goverment suggests there is a 30/30 safety rule. “After seeing lightning, you cannot count to 30 before hearing thunder, get inside a home, building, or hardtop vehicle. If you are outside avoid tall, isolated trees, boats, the beach, open fields, and anything metal (golf carts, bicylces, motocycles, etc.)
