People have seen a lot of things this year that have caused pause. Many were no where near ready. Many were.
We NEVER know what can happen tomorrow. We all need to be prepared for anything.
Now that you can get back out and about more - start getting back into the frame of mind of building your pantries. DON'T wait for an emergency again.
Slowly rebuild your can and dried food pantries. Slowly add TP and health and beauty items. Slowly add meat when and where you can. Add shelf stable meat or can your own, just in case there would be an electrical disruption. Grow whatever you can and can if at all possible. Make sure you have "how to" books in your actual hands in your library at home. Know where sources are for things you may need - in case stores are closed. Know your neighbors.
I have spent years preparing for "anything".
I keep funds on hand at home - just in case. I have protection for myself and home. I have knowledge of how to take care of myself.
During recent events, I did not once worry about running out to buy TP, cleaning supplies, masks or gloves. I had plenty of all of it. I had plenty of food and other supplies. I was ready. I did not panic.
Please take care of your families and yourself. Be ready. As stated above - the only way to be ready for anything is to be ready for anything!!!!
Get busy filling in the areas that you were lacking, during this past event. Add as much shelf stable food as possible.
NOW is the time to get busy and do as much as possible. NOT when something happens.
There is no need for panic if prepared.
Now please understand I am NOT ADVOCATING HOARDING! I am talking about storing enough for you and your family for a long term event.
Let's all get busy and be prepared (in case).
BE SMART - BE PREPARED
