Speaking of preparing for disasters, and in light of the recent floods here in Texas, I happened across these and wanted to share. http://www.cabelas.com/product/Sea-...=GoogleProductAds&WT.z_mc_id1=50024417&rid=20 There are all sizes and different materials, so this is just an example. Every time I hear about Hurricane Katrina, I flash on the people carrying their belongings in trash bags. Granted, trash bags can hold a lot, so if you were trying to evacuate a lot of items that still might work, but these are waterproof, and more durable than trash bags, as well as being more attractive. If you plan in advance, and are in a potential flood area, why not pick up a few, at least for your cell phone and other devices? You can buy them at Amazon, eBay, sporting goods stores, etc., and maybe even Walmart.
