With a historic blizzard bearing down upon us, make sure you take the time to check the Village of Arlington Heights' information about their storm preparations.  They have also access to a Winter Storm Preparedness guidebook from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency.   It includes tips on supplies you'll need in case of power outages, first aid information, etc.  Take care!

Google has assembled a special page regarding the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.  It includes information on making donations via the Japanese Red Cross Society, emergency phone contact numbers, a link to a "Person-Finder" site (a message board for helping to locate missing friends/relatives), shelter information, blackout details, etc.
