where can I get 5000 sandbags? I'll need a raft for my cats. Oh, should I get 45 gallons of milk and thirty cases of TP from WalMart??? And almost finally, do they sell swimmies for old men?? My biceps aren't what they used to be....Can we be like Mr. & Mrs. Howell?? I have an ascot.
Darn it, I just planted a Mum I bought for $4.99 at TSC....

Sounds like we have nothing to worry about. We can't do anything about it and we all die if it happens. So why live life in fear?

Here's one:


Our position in the realm has always been tenuous and fairly insignificant in the big picture.

Sure there is something that can be done. You'll have about 6 hours after it happens to head west to higher ground before the wave gets here. Then after the water recedes, head back home to clean up.
