Drop, Cover and Hold On

That’s what you do if there’s an earthquake. I practiced it today at 10:21 am.

The whole “life in a disaster zone” thing is kind of interesting. We have emergency sirens that get tested every Tuesday at noon. I can hear them from both my home and my office. It’s pretty loud at work because we’re close to the Ferry Building, which is where I think they honk one from. I also sometimes see bus advertising about emergency preparedness, advising each family to have a meeting spot. From time to time I think about buying bottled water so I can hoard it for emergency use.

Side note: Did you know that bottled water expires? A couple months ago we got an email from the office receptionist saying that the bottled water the office stores for disaster use was near expiry,  so we’d be buying fresh water for office-disaster-hoarding, and would anybody like to take the near-expiry water home for use?
