Taking a break from the jihad to address another hot item...the heat.
Just going on record, this is going to be one of the hottest summers in the DC area in memory. This will be the quintessential mid-atlantic August, but for three straight months! Should be a sauna.
72 hours of food and water per person. Batteries, flashlight, radio. 1/2 tank of gas.
Look after the elderly and infirm in your neighborhood.
