So My Wife Was Approached By a Guy at the Gas Station The Other Day…

It was about 1:30 in the afternoon and my wife called, “Guess what just happened?” in a partly excited voice but not obviously happy, at least not initially. I figured she got rear-ended, my kids broke her phone, she ran out of gas… who knows. It’s the pessimist in me.

Employing Les Stroud’s 3 Zones of Assessment in a Disaster Scenario
