When you prepare for vile weather it never comes.

Can someone tweet the governor's office and tell Gov.Deal no need to panic just yet. Just like Katrina when President Bush viewed the turmoil in New Orleans in a Aircraft jet 357.

Idiotic Kos

Even if bad weather or situation does not come at least you are prepared. I hope that is not your philosophy for life. Maybe that is why so many people are dependent on the government for assistance because they are not prepared.
What's the generational motto: YOLO... you only live once, well you live better when you are prepared.
