Welcome to the team and many thanks for your support to help get our area prepared.

I noticed your name in a previous post. I know another Teresa Edwards who lives in Renton. She doesn't have an 'h' in her name though. I look forward to meeting you at one of the EmergencyPreparedness events, maybe this weekend at the Tilth's Plant Sale!

cheers
