They are already preparing for downed trees and power lines and damage to homes.

There is a new wireless company with service available in at least New York offering 19 dollars a month service for unlimited talk, text and wi-fi. Yes you heard it right, 19 bucks!

There's so much that we find as a necessity today that we pay for that growing up was unheard of. Our family has 4 cell phones, internet access, cable and Netflix and we can't forget Sirius radio all at the tune of about 400.00 a month. Do we need it? Of course not, but we think we do and it leads to the QOD:
