We have a two story house with a basement. If I keep them upstairs, a tornado might come and I would lose them that way. If I keep them in the basement, a flood might come and I would lose them that way. Althought, the basement would be safer from tornadoes. The upstairs would be safer from a flood. If I kept them in the basement, I might not be able to get to them if there were a fire and I would lose them that way. Where do all of you keep your scrapbooks? I put so much time into them, I just don't want anything to happen to them.
