A few strange things today...

So I'm beginning to start stocking up and planning for tough times in the future (ugh, like NOW!!!:) LOL
A few strange things happened today and found me a bit anxious interested in things that could go wrong.
Like turning on the faucet and no water coming out...thankfully we DID have water but it was a bit more like a trickle...I don't know WHY or what was up with it.

Later I tried to use my cell and all my calls kept getting dropped and it appeared that the network was down. {UGH} It happened off and on for several hours today.

All of this got me thinking of better ways to prepare for things that could happen. Thankfully, my trust is in the Lord but still I don't want to be one of the 5 virgins who weren't prepared.
The FIRST in emergency preparedness (a natural disaster, terror strike, etc) is to have 1 weeks food supply and assume you have NO power.
I am finding MANY great tips at the Survival Mom.

Are you stocking up? Leave me a comment and let me know how you're doing with it.

Hi,

Talked to you last night on the Survival Mom webinar. I was "Philomena". Wasn't that fun? I wish we could have all gone to another chat room to finish the chat, some of those ladies really know what they're doing. I've been researching this for about 12 years, and I've had a small stockpile previously, but now I'm having to start over from scratch. But I'll be doing a bunch of posts on this as I get it done. We had our well go out last month, twice. The first time was for a couple of days. Going without water for two days with a family of 8, plus 9 chickens, and having no water backup is a BAD idea! A good reminder to me of the many reasons that EVERYONE should store food, water, and necessities. There's no excuse for us to not have at least a week's worth. A week would get you through the average mini-disaster (i.e. a blizzard...but not Katrina). Anyway, just thought I'd drop by and say hi!
