We survived yet another giant snowstorm.
But not without 6+ hours of lost electricity.
Which was really no big deal...because here in the G-Home, we are prepared.
When the storm was looming, and was all-the-rage with the weather-people on the news,
our local grocery stores AND Walmart were stripped bare.
Take a look:
It was like this down EVERY aisle.
Guys, this is how VERY volatile our food supply is.
In my estimation, it is WAY WISE to be prepared.
Early this morning when our electricity started flickering, I immediately
filled my sink with hot soapy water so I could wash dishes later.
AND I filled a thermos with boiling water for tea & such.
(Not necessary, but oh-so-LOVELY).
Then when the power finally gave out completely,
we went into survival-mode.
We simply had no idea how long it would be out.
(Thankfully, not long at all!)
Which meant, K-Man hooked up the generators, I stoked the fire in the fireplace,
planned meals, and just enjoyed it all.
We enjoyed it, because we were fully prepared for such an emergency.
Look, I can't stress enough how much I DO KNOW that
God WILL provide for our needs.
But I also know that God has given us common sense.
And He is not very keen on laziness.
And though I would never EVER go into debt to stock my shelves,
I do buy a little bit extra at almost each shopping trip to put aside some extra food/supplies.
It's not a year's worth of food, by any means.
But it would certainly get us through a week+ or more, easily.
Plus our freezers are full.
AND...we could share with our neighbors.
I hope to do some posts soon with some very real and practical ways
we all can prepare.
In the meantime, I'd love to know how YOU are preparing for emergencies?
