Are You Prepared For An Emergency? $50 GC Giveaway

    Many of you probably don’t know that September is National Preparedness Month.  Around these parts, we had a taste last year of how scary preparing for Hurricane Irene was and we were very lucky to get away with minimal damage.  This year, Hurricane Isaac has been wreaking havoc on the Gulf Coast and serves as an eerie reminder of the damage that was caused by the now infamous Hurricane Katrina.
