Hey y’all…hope your weekend was fantastic. We have been unbelievably busy these days with birthdays, crafts, and adventures. It has been a total blast and I can’t wait to share everything with you.
While life has handed us many blessings and the laughs have been plentiful my mind often wanders to something a little more serious.
Hurricane Katrina was almost eight years ago, can you believe it? I remember the chaos like it was yesterday. I remember how unprepared everyone, including the government was. For a very long time I thought that Katrina was a once in a lifetime event. Then came Hurricane Sandy.
People were without food and water and crying out for help. It broke my heart.
I realized that Tim and I are totally unprepared. And we live on a fault line. And every year I freak about tornadoes. And then there was the flood of 1993.
And then I read One Second After. Make a plan, and get prepared. If nothing else just run by the store today and buy a couple of gallons of water, a first aid kit, some flashlights, blankets, and rice.
Tim and have recently started collecting dry food goods and water, and we have a spot in the basement for emergency supplies. We have made a plan to buy a gallon of water…which by the way is only eighty cents….every time we go grocery shopping. With it being so cold outside, we are both putting a candle and blankets in our car.
We obviously hope we never have to use any of it, but having a plan today will help reduce panic if anything were to happen.
