I see. That's good at least. ^^ Still, it wouldn't seem like a bad idea. I mean, who knows? What if there's a blackout? I hear our power grid is rather vulnerable ... I also hear that last winter, because of all the coal plants they closed down and because of the alternative energy sources not providing the same amount of power, the grid was almost to the breaking point. If it reaches said breaking point this year ...
Sorry if I sound crazy. xD I just think being prepared for the worst is a good idea. Not saying the worst will happen, but better safe than sorry, right? ^^
It could be. I actually haven't heard much about it lately xD Though I know gas prices are going down, so yay~
But hey, having an emergency fund -- and being prepared in general -- is never bad. I know California has lots of fires and earthquakes, things like that ... do you have a disaster survival kit or something like that?
