I think being prepared for any emergency is a VERY good thing. The American Red Cross has been advertising the three-day rule for years. Those of us with trailers are a lot more fortunate than those without mobile living arrangements.
I'm a child of the 1950s, lived through the cold war AND Y2K...along with being a Girl Scout. Being prepared and running scenerios through your mind is good. Being afraid of living each day to its fullest is not. If the BIG ONE should hit, I wish you and yours to be safe, everything else is just "stuff."
On edit: Please, please not tomorrow...my day is all planned out in front of the TV.
