Here in south Florida this morning it is thundering and lightening like crazy. When Ingemar Johhanson knocked out Floyd Patterson to become the heavy weight champion of the world in 1959 the swede attributed the win to his “toonder and lightning.” He of course was referring to his uber fast right hand power punch not the weather.
I grew up in a little Alabama town. Alabama has crazy thunder storms. My mother, God rest her soul, was scared to death of thunder and lightning. When there was a storm we had to move to the middle of the house away from the windows and we were under no circumstances allowed to answer the phone. My Mom suspected the phone line as a conduit for lightning. Some time later in her life she forgot all about being fearful of storms and remembered her behavior with curiosity. My mother’s sister had a great fear of cats. I don’t remember hearing about any other human with a fear of cats. But like my mother her sister lost her fear later in life.
Two way radios can be very useful in storms particularly if there is a loss of electrical power. Two way radios are battery powered so they continue to operate. If there is a prolonged loss of power an extra battery pack or alkaline batteries can be a solution. The UPS (uninterruptible power supply used with computers) can be a source for recharging radio batteries. If you are prepared with the right charger you can use the battery in your automobile to recharge 2 way radio batteries.
We sell the Midland Traveler Base Station radio that is great for use in a storm. It can be tuned to local weather channels, AM and FM stations and also works with hand held radios. The Midland Traveler Base Station has an onboard hand crank generator for recharging or it can be plug into a regular outlet for use when electrical power is not an issue.
