Like a lot of people, I've been watching Debby, the tropical storm down in the Gulf of Mexico. This is a strange one it seems, not in a hurry to go anywhere, just camping out near Florida. My concern when it first started was that it would head towards New Orleans, because my dad and sister are there right now, on a mission trip with my sister's youth group. Doesn't look like they'll have any problems from it, fortunately.

So to relate this to our business, think about the floods hitting Florida right now. Are you prepared for a disaster like a hurricane or other event? Got your data backed up? Got a spare system ready to go in case a main one gets damaged? At the very least, do you have some spare hard drives you can throw into a machine to replace ones that cooked by a power surge?
