Are You Prepared For A Weather Distaster?

    If the electricity went out right now in your home would you be prepared???

    Our old electric systems are interlocked. A disaster in the eastern seaboard could

    cause rolling black outs and it could domino. We could have a Canadian weather front

    come down and bring long term frigid weather. An Ice Storm could knock down electrical wires.

    Are you prepared even minimally?

    Do you have some bottled water? Canned food?

    Do you have cold weather gear if your electricity goes out for even 6 hours?

    Do you have an auxiliary heating source?

    You think I am being a nervous Nelly here but I wonder how many people out in New Jersey and New York

    wished they were a little warmer today and had clean water and some canned food to eat??????



    This Saturday the wife and daughter and I are going to our local Army Surplus store. Yes I am a cheapskate....

    The first thing on our list is cold weather gear. Mickey Mouse Boots for all of us and cold weather gear.

    I already have 4 cases of bottled water and canned food. I am going to get steno cooking gear at the Surplus Store too.

    Maybe some good rain gear.

    We boarded up our fireplace when our daughter was little. My wife has decided to let me open it up again. We are having

    a guy come in and look at it to get it back up to working order and then we are going to get a big load of wood.

    It happened to the one of the most populated area of all of the United States.....

    It could happen here. I am not being a fear monger....I am being realistic and taking care of my family.

    Any of you have any good ideas for weather disasters?
