Today is the first day of Hurricane Season down south here, and after Hurricane Ike hitting and having no power for 14 days, no water for 3 days and no natural gas for 4 days, I think we ought to be a little bit more prepared this year than last. While I am super-broke right now (baby on the way any second now, new racecar project, less working hours), at least we can start stocking up now. I am refilling our empty gallon water jugs with tap water and marking them with a "T" for Tap Water on the lids, and putting them in the laundry room. I usually pick up an extra can or two of non-perishable food at the store when we're there. We have lamp fuel and two lamps (which we used a lot after Ike!!), and lots of candles and matches. We have switched to plastic bins (from cardboard boxes) for much of our storage to ensure that what gets wet/flooded is usable. What do you have in your Hurricane Kit? Alternately, we are also building Bug Out Bags for each of us as well. What's in your BOB?
