Girl in a rain poncho during a flood, using a phone.This is a tip that I learned last year during the hurricanes (Katrina and Rita). In most cases this was the only way to contact family members in Louisiana. I think with hurricane season in full force (no pun intended) this is a good thing to know. When a land line is unavailable and all you have is a cell phone even that is useless sometimes. During storms (or in "dead zones" while traveling) when you don't have a signal and a call won't go through, try a text message.

More often than not it will work. It worked for me every time. It's not hard to do, except when you're actually driving and that's not advisable. For those of you who aren't used to text messaging, give it a try ahead of time so that you're sure you know how to do it. Good luck.
