Preparedness Challenge #8
Another week of accomplishment for me. Not a huge amount, but definitely makes me feel better. I finally received my crank flashlights! These things are so much fun. I read a post over at Safely Gathered In and she talked about the scariness of being in a bad storm a few years back. (Read the post here). She had a BOB within reach, but some of the items were still in their packages. Trust me; read the post, you won't regret it. I immediately took mine out of the packaging and tested them out (played with them) to make sure they worked ok. These things are great.
I also put my emergency car kit together. Inside there is a first aid kit, disinfecting wipes, granola bars (not pictured), almonds, sunscreen, matches in a waterproof container, flint & striker and two emergency blankets.
Head on over to the Homestead Revival site to link up to the Preparedness Challenge or just read some great posts! Enjoy the weekend and thanks for reading. :)
