Seeing as this gorgeous summer weather is going to abandon us in the hopefully not-so-near future, it seems a good time to remind folks about being prepared for emergencies and disasters. The December 2007 storm occurred just a couple of months after I arrived to this community. I was very lucky to have a friend and neighbor who was amply prepared so frankly I enjoyed the paid week off.

Dear Abby: I’m a gay male college student who is out and comfortable with who I am — 99 percent of the time. When I was in high school, I tried to come out to my parents and it didn’t go smoothly. They had an emotional crisis for a day, then shrugged it off as “just another teenage phase.” After the panic mode was over, they bought me off with an expensive car and continued believing I’m straight.
