Emergencies are, by definition, unpredictable. The lake-effect snowstorms that have battered Buffalo and surrounding areas are a very good example.
Coming so early in the season, the unprecedented blizzard conditions created millions of emergencies, large and small, in millions of lives. And unfortunately, from what I’m hearing, lots and lots of people were unprepared for the (more…)
