I saw also another one picture in the newspaper, amazing self reliance…

In what newspaper? I would also want to see that. These are great examples of being prepared than to be sorry. I don’t know how much they spend for it but it shows that it’s really worth it.

This is scary. I want to know much about this news. I remember the flood in Australia months ago. It nearly left my Aunt homeless. I hope this won’t happen again.

So scary to see the tragedy of the floods, but wow… what a way to protect your home. This person was really thinking ahead, but how in the hell did he get access to his home on a regular basis? Those look like mighty steep dirt walls.
