God Bless Texas

The Lone Star State has been ravaged by epic flooding that’s been made worse by a five year drought.  With 17 dead and ten missing due to the catastrophic weather, it’s more important than ever to be prepared with potentially serious weather events.

Do you have a disaster plan?  Huddle together with your family to make a plan in the event of a catastrophic event.  Make sure your kids know what parts of the house are safe in the event of a tornado or flood.  Junior high age children can be taught to read weather maps and read weather advisories.  Load those on your phone.  Be sure that as you plan, you plan for your pets.  Thinking about ditching that clunky old flip phone for a smart phone to get the latest weather radar? Take advantage of T-Mobile’s free shipping using our codes. 

Highly recommended are the Flood and Hurricane apps by the American Red Cross available in the Apple app store.  These apps tell what to do before, during and after a weather emergency.  If you’re a seasoned survivalist, it still helps to brush up and there’s a myriad of apps in the Apple store that can help you prepare for inclement weather.  Verizon offers $50 off and free shipping on select phones and devices so that you can get yourself prepared.  Summer is coming and with it, hurricanes and tropical storms. 

God Bless you, Texas and keep you brave and strong.  Thousands of homeowners and business owners have been impacted by these massive storm systems.  Whether you’re in Tornado Alley, the Gulf or elsewhere educate yourself and those you love on potentially hazardous situations and how to prepare and manage them.  Watch your back and we’ll have your back as you prepare.
