Sorry for the nagging (but I’m a mom, that’s my job) but September is…Emergency Preparedness Month. (I know that has you all jumping out of your seats in excitement.)

Today’s topic is: power outages.

What is your 30 second plan if the power goes out? Seriously, can you find your way to a secondary light source in the dark? Can you tell me where a flashlight is right now?

What is your 30 minute plan? 3 hour plan? 3 day plan?

Odds are really, really good that at least one lizard will experience a power outage this winter. The time be sure that you have back-up sources of light, heat, and heat to cook with are now (before an emergency drains supplies or makes the price go up.)

Okay, go back to your regularly scheduled snarking now.

I have a flashlight in my pocket. Unless I’m asleep, then it’s with in 2 steps from the bed distance. I have 72 bottles of water and 2 weeks of food. It does not get very cold here either so extra clothing will suffice. If needed, I have a small outdoor cooker and a couple of canisters of propane.

Do I pass?
