I know a lot of folks were worried about Y2K.
This was pre-911, but not pre-apocalyptic thinking. I remember CNN’s report suggesting people go buy bottled water, toiletries, candles, batteries, and plenty of canned food. Then came my mother’s letter written to me on Monday, December 28th, 1999. Now even though her warnings may have seemed appropriate at the time, please try and understand that I grew up with this kind of thing…every single day of every single year. Y2K just became the catalyst and justification for everyone else to jump on board the Fear Fiesta…
In the year 2000, don’t go up in a plane New Year’s Eve & don’t go on an elevator! Those are only the 2 things to avoid until we see how computers are working.
