Prepare for a Rainy Day

"It was not raining when Noah built the ark. But he built it and the rains came...We are told by seismologists that the Salt Lake Valley is a potential earthquake zone...We have built grain storage and storehouses...in the event of a disaster. But the best storehouse is the family storeroom. The Lord has said, "Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing." Our people for three-quarters of a century have been counseled and encouraged to make such a preparation as will assure survival should a calamity come. We can set aside some water, basic food, medicine, and clothing to keep us warm. We ought to have a little money laid aside in case of a rainy day."
--President Hinckley, October 2005
