I have a copy of White 2 and never got around to playing White or Black 1. Will I be missing a lot?
Should I hold off on playing? I'm preparing for a hurricane and need to decide whether it's a go- or no-go situation.

BW2 is Better than BW. The first game is still good though. I dunno that you're missing that much, but Id say BW is worth a play through that's my opinion anyway I personally liked the sequels more.
You'll be missing a lot because BW2 will be late-arrival spoilers to BW1.
You'll be missing a lot because the original Black and White were the superior games. Black and White 2 is a retread with all the meat cut out.
Play BW1 to learn the story and characters. BW2 are mostly a response to them, and use the Memory Link! (it really enhances the BW2 experience and personalizes it for you)
Gameplaywise, you won't be missing much, storywise you will.
Well, I'm gonna try and beat Guardian Signs in a speed-run during the hurricane today. My best is 9 hours 30 minutes. :B
BW are great games, and you should definitely play them. The only thing you'll be missing out on if you don't is some information which is very important to BW2's plot.
A LOT of things will come off as unnecessary or nonsensical plot-wise if you haven't played BW.
It's probably best to start with BW for the plot and characters and such.
@Aquanova; B2W2 is definitely not better than BW. The plot pales in comparison for instance.
