Well, we've got a fair bit of food and water in the cellar and camping gear in the attic but if the house collapses into the cellar don't know about digging equipment to excavate it all...

First rule of survival, don't live in places where disasters happen: under volcanoes; on top of earthquakes; in flood plains; in a Wichita Falls trailer home.

Second rule of survival: Don't return all that stuff to Walmart for a refund the day after the storm passes. You might need those Vienna sausages and pixie stix to survive on before next payday.
