Ever since I was a kid this time of the year always put me in “prep” mode. A few days of cooler weather hints that Fall and Winter are approaching – and hunting season. Being from the northeast the winter provided snow storms and power outages.
I remember one particularly large winter storm – possibly 1977. We woke up in our single story home to find snow drifts keeping us prisoner. From what I remember my brother climbed out a window and shoveled out the front door. The next day my mother and I walked to the grocery store with a sled to carry the groceries back. I was about 7 years old.
Growing up with the threat of this kind of weather yearly has always made me identify this time of the year as “get ready time”. With that said – this month several articles are going to focus on basic prepping for common disasters.
This month I am looking at my preps and seeing where I have to improve. I am re-prioritizing to shore up areas. I suggest that you do the same. No better time than the present. How are your food, water, shelter, power, medical, and defensive preps? Are there some inexpensive and fast things that you can do over the next 30 days to better your position?
Stay tuned! We will be celebrating Preparedness Month here at ModernSurvivalOnline.com.
