Now is the time to start making preparations. Begin thinking about what supplies you may need in the event of a storm. Also start planning out your evacuation routes, places to stay, far enough in advance, that you have time to make modifications later if necessary. In the event a storm does strike your area, you'll be ahead of the population in general on preparations. And take some time this season to talk with family, friends, and neighbors about the weathe...
