Brrr, Winter has Set In, Do you have Your Food for Emergency Preparedness Kit?

It isn’t quite Winter yet although it sure feels like it. Winter officially begins on Saturday, December 21st. Only 3 days from now. I live in an area where we can get a lot of snow. I have been snowed in before, (only for half a day but still), it is good to be prepared in case it would be longer. I have kids in the house and it would be unbearable if they were hungry. I get so crabby when I am hungry I would not be able to stand myself either. I found a food for emergency preparedness kit online and I bought two of them. One for the vehicle and one for the house. The shelf life is 25 years so it will keep awhile. Hopefully it will go bad before I need it.

I also keep a winter survival kit in my vehicle it contains;

  • Candles
  • Water
  • Matches- the plan is to melt the frozen water if necessary with the candle and use it for heat, brilliant I know.
  • Granola Bars
  • Candy Bars
  • Nuts
  • Diapers, you never know, it is cleaner than having to go in a bucket.
  • Plastic bags
  • 2 Blankets
  • Flashlight
  • Batteries
  • Shovel

I am always looking for different ideas to add to the kit. Here is a great site I found, yes I will be updating my kit. ;) Make your own Winter Survival Vehicle Kit.
