A community recommendation


I know that there are a lot of people interested in disaster preparedness- especially in the wake of Katrina.

I found a community that is focused on this subject, [info]making_a_plan. This isn't a foil hat, religious, or end times site, it's a place where people can talk about and share practical thoughts about preparing for a disaster of any sort. It's a new community, so it'll take a bit of time to blossom.

Check it out!
