The one and only answer to this question is: NO ONE CARES! The T.V. has destroyed us. Everyone one hates the word Y2K. Seriously, there is not one person I know at this date 11/28/99 that is giving in to one thing that the T.V. has to say and they are NOT getting prepared. Pride is standing in their way. They don't want to be the fool if nothing really happens. This is a shame!!!! I have kids and not for nothing, I as a parent need to continue to provide the essentials in life food/water and shelter/warmth for them them even if the power ONLY is out for a few days. My question for the world of non believer is "WHAT IF...?" Don't get me wrong, I am definately not a hyped-up believer. I just ask my self the question WHAT IF? and prepare for a winter storm, providing the essentials. Nuclear stuff, I CAN'T do a thing about and am not concerned with but food etc. I CAN do something about so, I as a parent, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend or a human being can not live with myself if we are with out something for sometime and I didn't do everything I could to take care of my loved ones and anybody else I am able to help along the way. Later you can call me the Fool. Better to be safe than sorry.
