Flashlight, check...

WE have a storm moving our way.   It is an hour off yet, but we have no idea how it will be when it gets here.

So, I head  out to my storm kit...


Flashlights and extra batteries

Chain saw and gas

Generator and gas, and yes it started.

Drinking water

Non-drinking water

non-perishable foods

Lightweight outdoors stuff, moved and fastened down.

Weather radio on and dialed in.


This is part of the list but the most important part.

There are also tarps, shovels and axes...Ropes and bungee cords and small bricks.


The storm is coming and if it isn't to severe, we will make it just fine.

Great list.  My list also includes guns and ammunition, check.

My goodness William Feela sounds like you will be prepared for almost anything.  I have flashlights in several locations so they will be easily accessible just in case.  Be safe.

I hope by the time you read this you have power and water. It's great to have a checklist in case of severe weather. On a side note, as I sit with laptop in hand this Sunday evening, I decided to watch Grumpy Old Men on DVD. And wouldn't you know, it's set in Minnesota! Talk about coincidence. Good luck with the rough weather, William.

That's a comprehensive plan William Feela and a good reminder to all of us to be prepared.

Hi William Feela ,  It sounds like if you don't weather the storm, you'll be ready to handle any situation.

Always pays to be prepared Bill, and I generally am, both at home and on the road.

It's always much better to be prepared in that way. I wouldn't blame you if you did it that way.
