Hello, Alberto!

Tropical Storm Alberto is the first named storm of the 2006 hurricane season. Alberto plans on visiting Cuba and Florida. What fun for them! We are only 11 days into the season and we already have a named storm. I just hope the so-called evacuation plans that Texas and the other Gulf Coast states have will really work this time around. For as long as there have been hurricanes, it just seems that they would have figured this all out a little sooner. But its not just the government that needs to get it's collective head out of the sand. According to the American Red Cross, most Americans aren't prepared for emergencies. I'm not talking about duct for your windows in case of a terrorist attack. I'm talking food, water, batteries, flashlights and the like in case of blackouts and whatever type of natural disaster is likely to occur where you live. Just something to think about...
