Yep! not for bioterrorists, though – hurricanes. We always have a few gallons of water, a generator, flashlights, batteries, food, tools, rope you name it in our garage. My car has a tool kit, a fire blanket, haha. Also, we keep our cat’s travel stuff in one place inside and one in the garage so we can scoop them up quickly if necessary – includes litter, box, scoop, towels, medicine, bowls, and 2 travel bags. hehe, i guess you can say we like to be prepared, too!

I keep a winter kit in my car. I blew a tire a few weeks ago in 15 degree weather ajd was grateful to have stuff.

I keep a sweatshirt, blanket, defroster, antifreeze, windshield fluid, oil, all kinds of stuff. oh, flashlights, road flares, etc. All in a bucket in my hatchback.

They laugh at me for wanting to keep a stock of n99 and p99 masks in the basement, but at least Boyfriend or Best Friend agrees to keep canned and dried foods and water.

He says he’s more likely to get the seven day set:  http://www.nitro-pak.com/product_info.php?products_id=1465

I think it is a great idea!

Right now I just have jumper cables (which I finally used for the first time on a co-workers car! haha), a flash light, a blanket and one of those things to cut the seatbelt if you go underwater (a gift from my dad…he is all about it).

I also have my AAA card 😉

So I don’t often read it, but not too long ago there was a piece in newsweek about “preppers”. The featured family like stockpiles guns, food, supplies, even things like clotting agents. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with some  preparation, but if it consumes you…too much. haha.
