That's really good to hear! We are somewhat prepared in terms of food/water/generators, but the furniture needs to be strapped... especially cheap IKEA bookcases.
I cant even imagine how to deal with a house that comes off a slab... yank it back with a dozer? Plumbing, gas, electrical, all takes a shit.
Well, glad everything is ok with you and family! Best of luck to the shaken up boy and girl.
Did you know there was a mini baby boom in Montreal about 9 months after the power got knocked out by the ice storm in january 1998? Lots of people didnt have utilities for close to a month. Staying warm...?
