We have been very fortunate
and weathered the recent
storms sweeping through our parts.
But we were left without power for
quite some time.
These power lines very near our home
were blown over the road
and left that way for a few days while
repairmen fixed area outages.
It was erie driving under them!
I decided to get an emergency kit together.
I told DH where it was located.
And I filled it with water, 2 pop open cans of spaghettios,
2 flashlights and plenty of batteries, another flashlight that is wound up for power,
candles and lighters,
first aid kit, duct tape...and the most genius idea (not mine orginally)
glow necklaces - pop them on everyone
and it not only lightens the mood a little but
allows everyone to be located!
I also just heard about glow in the dark paint. Wouldn't it be smart
to put a dab on all the flashlights in the home?
We keep one in our bedroom if there is an outage at home, it would be
great if we could see it at night!
We tucked our box just at the bottom of our stairs,
I put a note in our family binder when to change the food.
And we aren't affected by the area floods, but this is a bridge that
was just redone a few years ago, raised some too combat floods
and the water is right up to it again.
Many of my patients from the pharmacy have had to move to higher ground
and could use our prayers!
