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.

Multiple high power LED flashlights.

Two very very sharp and real swords. (Ok not practical, but I actually do know how to use them)

I always have a lot of canned food and bottled water around. (Not that I stockpile per se, I use it as I go, but I have a couple of days worth).

Two very very fierce dogs (ok they are 35 and 16 lbs respectively, but they can stop an attack by the power of uber cuteness)

One shottie, 12 gauge

One MI Garand. Actually quite good at dropping a deer. I haven’t but I know it can.

Many many student homework papers to burn for warmth if needs be.

I think I’m ok.
