Do you have a disaster supplies kit ready to go?
It is suggested by ready.gov that you keep a disaster supply kit assembled before it happens. You should have enough food water and supplies to last for 72 hours! Are you prepared?
Yes I am. I live along the New England Coast. We are always at risk for either hurricanes or blizzards. I always have enough bottled water for 4 adults for 10 days. The same for non-perishable foods. The first aid kit is always stocked. We have several fireplaces and the wood pile is always high and near the door.
It is not uncommon for us to lose electrical power in sub-zero weather. So we have to be ready. We've been without power after hurricanes for up to 8 days.
Although we have municipal water and have never been without a water supply, I plan that that might happen in the future. I always have some paper reading materials, even though I use my e-reader.
I also have an emergency stock of high calorie food supplement drinks, if things get really bad and we need to go an extended period and our food stock gets low.
good for you! it looks like you have put a lot of thought into it. I lost power once for about a week in freezing weather. Nearest hotel room I was able to get was about an hour from home
Keeping warm in winter is important for the house as well. Frozen pipes are a nightmare. So we keep all our fireplaces blazing during an outage.
