Taking Lessons from the Movie Take Shelter

I recently watched the movie “Take Shelter” which is about a man who decides to build an emergency storm shelter for his family. Of course, everyone thought he was paranoid. Sound familiar? I will admit that I run into my share of people who don’t believe in emergency preparedness.

Without spoiling the movie for you too much, it serves as an example to trust your instincts when it comes to emergency preparedness and never to listen to anyone who makes fun of you for taking steps to prepare your family for a disaster.

Of course, we all don’t have the resources to build an ideal storm shelter. In fact, the main character in the movie didn’t either. But we can all at least some steps to be better prepared; even if it’s only investing $100 on an emergency preparedness kit to keep in your car.

And if you haven’t seen the movie, I highly recommend it. Check out the movie trailer below.
