Personal Preparedness on WRVA
WRVA put up a podcast of my interview from yesterday, so I used my iPod to film a title screen while the mp3 played. I'm sure there are easier ways to do it, but it worked OK. I'll probably update it when I upgrade my AV equipment at some point.
I'm a Winner!
No, not like Charlie Sheen... A big THANKS to M.D. Creekmore at The Survivalist Blog and his sponsors, Lucky Gunner! A couple weeks ago, I made a blog post about Lucky Gunner to enter a contest and just found out that I've won the first prize, a $200 credit. Gotta love free ammo!
Virginia's Statewide Tornado Drill
Today the Va. Department of Emergency Management ran a tornado drill across the state. There were over a million registered participants. It got kicked off at 9:45 with an alert over the NOAA Weather Radios. In addition to a drill for our schools, I used it as a reason to remind folks in our administrative building about what they can do at work and at home to prepare for a tornado.
I know other states have statewide earthquake drills, do any others do a tornado drill, and have you participated in any statewide drills?
