    Winter EF/S...

    With cold winter weather approaching (already there for some folks), it's a good idea to have winter weather EF/S's in place. If you don't already have it prepared, now would be a good time. Let's brainstorm and compile a list of things that would be good to have on hand.

    I'll start...

    Flashlights and batteries
    A source to heat food and water
    Canned foods that only need heating (to minimize fuel use)
    A manual can-opener
    Bottled water
    Warm clothes
    Sleeping bag(s)

    Any other ideas out there?

    We just spent 5 days with no power due to Halloween snow.....crazy! I can say the one thing we need to restock but can't find locally is lantern oil for the hurricane lamps. Luckily we were able to find single (small) propane tanks for the cook stove.We are restocking everything quickly though because we just realized the last 3 times we lost power it was for a minimum of 5 days, Not really sure what is up with that but it's crazy! What ever happened to losing the power for 20 minutes....LOL.

    An after thought.....paper cups and plates make it much easier too

    Hi,

    I just review five survival food kits here -

    72 hour survival kits review

    possibly this can help answers to your question.

    IMHO have food and survival kit in ready to grab and go bag somewhere near in case of emergency is a must for everyone who think about family safety. Responsibility, that how we call this.

    Kind regards,

    icon_smile.gif May I add in making sure you have survival kits ready and at hand for your selves and your family, please don't forget to make one also for your pets. Food and water are of utmost importance, with some way to care for them should they become injured, also make certain you have a way to contain them and keep them safe during a disaster. Our pets are important also!

    Having lived in extreme weather locations ranging from blizzards to hurricanes, my first thought is always on safety. I check and rotate supplies in our first aid kits. Call me overly cautious but we have kits in each bathroom, the garage, each car, adn one in teh kitchen. I added small fire extinguishers. Seems that when the power goes out, accidents happen more often.

    I also stock up on:
    salt and cat litter (to keep a clear and ice- free path to the grill for cooking without electricity)

    pantry items for no-bake treats (keeps little ones and bored big ones busy)

    sterno cans (cooking in the driveway when the grill was otherwise busy)

    powdered lemon or lime juice (is a nice change of pace from plain water and helps with a little salt/electrolytes)

    Meat Jerky - Dried Fruits - Granola (good to pack in the event that someone needs to leave the house during bad weather)

    just bumping this up since the leaves are starting to fall here and I've been thinking cold weather prep. I like the idea of jerky and granola I buy that stuff all the time but don't store it, I'll have to hide it in a large tin container so the family wont find it and eat it!

    If you put it in an opaque container labeled "Dehydrated Zucchini", I bet they'll leave it alone... icon_lol.gif

    Unless they like dehydrated zucchini! icon_eek.gif
