when the rain in coming down in buckets, in your town, even driving on the highways is very dangerous - for one thing, you can't see the lightly painted lane dividers.

as for my town, we're surrounded by oil refineries and chemical plants. there are two chemical plants behind the building I work at. having one blow up has been a concern. one of them recently had a fire in which several workers were injured and I think 2 died.

other things to ponder... we're in a hurricane and flooding prone area, lots of poverty in my town, too, so the possibility of social break down (rioting, looting etc) is of concern as well. one thing that has always bothered me was our close proximity to Houston and the LA border. EMP or a nuke attack would be a ***** in that case we also have a lot of rail road tracks crisscrossing the town. hate to have one of the trains derail since its probably hauling chemicals
