The first Preparedness Fair is running now and has several GREAT posts on it.  Check the link below to see them and hopefully learn something new.

I KNOW that of the hundreds of readers here, there are bound to be a number of writers too---please don't wait for someone else to do it--join in and share!
Please see above for how to read these books without a Kindle, and the sidebar at left for a quick explanation of this blog. Have fun getting new books! :) May I suggest that you check daily so you don't miss all those available for only 24 hrs. Many of yesterday's books will still be free, so if you missed checking then, it's still worth a visit, as you may pick up some gems that way.
If you are coming here on a later date than February 18, please check the most recent list for today's books: Main Page. (Some of the books below may still be available. Most are free for 1 or 2 days but sometimes they are free longer.)

The Practice of Hurricanes
”Floods, evacuations, business closures, road blocks and finding fish in trees and boats in the road were just a matter of course in Key West those summers, but it wasn't all bad. There were lessons to be had from those storms, too, and ways to go on living in a place that might be blown away before your eyes. This is a personal essay which includes statistical information about those two record-breaking hurricane seasons and a look at popular science, and Key West superstition, concerning the increasing frequency and severity of hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin.”
