Public Service Announcement

On October 31, the Bay Area experienced a 5.6 magnitude earthquake. Though only 10 or so kilometers from our house, we experienced little damage but lots of shaking and rattling. This got me off my butt to start preparing a little more for natural disasters. My work gave us a earthquake preparedness kit with food and first aid.
What we were missing was a fire safe records box. We got a 1.2 cubic feet one from Costco that is SentrySafe brand - water, fire and security (they also have models for media protection). Couldn't figure out the fingerprint lock though - always errored out when scanning in our fingers.

Now the trick is figuring out what to put in the safe. Good thing JPL on AllFinancialMatters gave us a checklist.
So for all of you procrastinators out there, not more excuses - get a safe deposit box, and be safe!
