The fable of the ant and the grasshopper
We are all familiar with Aesop’s fable of the ant and the grasshopper. The grasshopper spent the whole summer lying around in the shade, while the ant prepared for winter. The grasshopper had decided that there would be plenty of food left around for winter, as most winters he had found that food was not sparing. This particular winter happened to be worse than others, and the grasshopper was definitely not prepared, but the ant was.
This is how Flood Risk America feels about hurricane season. Although it is winter, and we have cold weather and shoveling snow, instead of water on our mind, it’s best to prepare early, especially in coastal or flood prone areas. 2017 was a hard year for a large portion of the United States; FEMA had been backed up for months with the amount of flood claims and damage. 2018 has been predicted to exceed what we felt was our worst year.
Many claims are still being handled, but many people are still in the mindset of the grasshopper.
