I do have copies on my backup external drive but I also want copies someplace where if my house burns down, the data isn't lost (although my lawyer has most of it).
I use Google Drive for non-secure stuff. The only digital things that I have that need to be secure are tax forms. I have onsite backups via home network drives and I also can log in to my tax preparation online accounts and download copies of prior year's tax forms.

I'm Bloggin'
