Why we need emergency supply kits.
That’s right there was twenty-two named winter storms in the 2016/2017 season Beginning with Argos and ending with Valerie.
- These Storm’s Produced Lots of:
- Triggered severe weather such as Tornado’s
- Hurricane force winds
- What I see in common with these storms is:
- Power outages
- Road closures
- Property damage
- Time off work
- Loss of life
- Are you ready for 2017/18 season?
- Do we want to be dependent on family, friends and worst yet the government?
- We do not need to put ourselves in that ugly predicament.
- What would we pay for a drink and snack after going without for 24 hours $10.00,$100.00, maybe $1000.00
- I think we would pay whatever we had to!!
- We should take an action and be prepared !!
- With some planning, we can be ready for storms if they come our way.
- If we’re ready maybe we will not be sitting in dark and worried if we have a good supply of food and water for our loved one

Then the temperature dropped down in the single digits.(Fahrenheit)
I lost power for two weeks. Supplies ran out in town in one or two days there was food and water available. But I heated my home with electric. My cook stove was also electric.
- No portable propane heaters or gas camp stoves.
- No portable propane bottles.
- No gas generators.
- No candles. No flashlights
- No flashlights
- No batteries
This is just a few of the supplies that were not available.
It was a huge eye-opener for me on how important it is to have emergency supplies stocked up.
If you don’t already have I really hope you make a plan and have at least a few days of emergency supplies.
Talk with your family and friends especially the elderly and disabled make sure they have a plan or help.
Here are some vendors that I have purchased emergency supplies from and got excellent service!! BROWSE HERE
