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 report written to me on Monday, December 28th, 1999. Now even though this letter seems 'appropriate' for the time, and some of you might have even heard these warnings, please try and understand that I grew up with this level of worry and anxiety every single day of the year. Y2K became the catalyst and justification for the masses to join in on my mother's perpetual Fear Fiesta.
