The rainy season has come in southwest Florida, and while the parched ground of the glades will welcome the rain, the strength of some storms can be a grave threat to humans. June 1 is the start of Hurricane Season and now is the time to prepare for what lies ahead.
As a FEMA disaster assistance employee for many years, I know well the havoc nature can make on well-planned lives. I urge you to make a plan that will keep you and your family safe in the months ahead. Federal and state governments offer information and materials that can assist you in planning. You can visit readyamerican.gov on Facebook or myflorida.com/ to get started.
Once you have a plan for you and your family's safety, you can begin to think about your art business or your art collection. Tomorrow I'll tell you a little about how to prepare your paintings in the face of a storm.
