It seems to me that people in this area are more and more used to these kinds of storms–and are getting better at preparing for them when they come. Take a look at some of the photos from “Sandy:” http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2012/10/hurricane-sandy-after-landfall/100396/

Now that we can look back on this storm, and as everyone is getting their electricity back up and running: were you ready for this storm? What did you do to prepare? …and for as much as you did prepare for Sandy, what was it that made this such a priority?
Did the awesome power make you feel vulnerable? Did you think about what might happen to you or your loved ones? Was it helpful to know that it was coming so you could brace yourself and take refuge out of harms way?
Now consider this:
Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger, to make the land a desolation and to destroy its sinners from it.
For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be dark at its rising, and the moon will not shed its light.
I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant, and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless. (Isaiah 13:9-11, ESV)
And ask yourself the same questions above. Are you ready for this storm?
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Rom 10:13 ESV)
