There aqre those who ask for a recipe or a formula, as if they were baking a cake, and I can't help them. But I can tell you what seemed to work for me this time, as I and my family faced Hurricane Sandy.
I can say that what I did was pretty much a follow-on to what I always do. And, there are some observations I've made in the past which seem to really apply here. In some cases, it involves putting wrong learning behind me. In other cases, it involves making use of new learning. And finally, seeing what I was being given played a major role.
Something wonderful here to explore!
