Happy New(clear) Year

You know, you really haven't rung in the New Year properly until you have received your copy of the '2009 Nuclear Emergency Planning Information Calendar' for your local nuc-ul-ar power plant.

Luckily, I got mine a couple of days ago.

This calendar is filled with all sorts of great things, especially the 12 peaceful nature shots that adorn each and every month.

Rest assured, this picture was not included:

What was included were the less-than-comforting sections titled "Personal Action Plan", Your Emergency Plan", "Disaster Supply Kit", and "Evacuation Assembly Centers".

I guess that this is a reminder that I need to invest some time in reading all those disaster preparedness links that Instapundit is always posting.
