After this week’s devastation on the east coast, much talk is being focused on the implications extreme storms like Sandy have on climate change being human-created. We have a feeling you know where we stand on that issue. But, nevertheless, no matter what you believe, one thing stands true: it is always good to be personally prepared for a weather emergency, small or large. One of our recommendations? This Etón Microlink Self-Powered AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio ($30.99). Super smart and ultra compact (it’s only 5.25 inches long), it includes a solar panel, a hand crank, AM/FM and Weather Band tuners, a USB port for cell phone charging, and an LED flashlight. The multifunctional small wonder is a welcome addition to any supply kit — and will help keep you charged and ready for anything the weather brings your way.
