Severe weather preparedness was the big topic on Saturday's Erwin Pawn Tradio Show.

Tornadoes ravaged the country to the east of us on Thursday and Friday.  It seemed like a good time to discuss it whilst bringing buyers and sellers together on The Erwin Pawn Tradio Show.

Out Big Question of the show was: Do you have a storm shelter?  I was quite surprised by the results.  35 said no, 11 said yes.  Many of the no's said they counted on a neighbor's shelter.  That presents a false sense of security.  When the time comes that is what you won't have; time.  I highly recommend that if you have the means, get one.  Skip the summer vacation and budget for a storm shelter.  It might save your life.

Rule #6 played into the severe weather theme.  I remember a couple seasons ago when a funnel cloud rolled right over my apartment.  I didn't have anywhere to go and was at a loss as to what to do.  One important thing I did was get dressed, specifically my socks and shoes.  If a structure is destroyed around you and you survive you'll be in dire straits if your shoes got blown away.

Rule #6 - Get dressed during severe weather.

See you next Saturday for The Erwin Pawn Tradio Show!
