  1. Great post! I like in Kansas and know we should be prepared, but we rarely are. We don’t have storage for extra water, and not much space for too many can goods either. I do insist having our to-go bags ready from March to the end of October. I pray nothing like what hit Alabama, Mississippi and Missouri ever happens again.

    That picture from your bedroom window is chilling.

  2. Christina, we store our extra water in the our crawl space. When we didn’t have a large pantry like we do now, we put can goods (on the half boxes they come on in the store sometimes) under our bed or in our closet on the shelf.

  3. My MIL used to be our neighbor before she passed away. She was the stock-piler. Me, not so much. We love to be snowed in, though. That’s our time to cozy up and everyone be home and I’ll bake and Jim will run the generator. I think we’ve gone a week before. Much past that and it would be hard. You’re right, I do need to be more prepared than what I am. And as far as eternity, Come Lord Jesus come!

  4. WONDERFUL post! We don’t get tornadoes or hurricanes here, but do usually get at least one powerful / electricity-loss storm each year. Plus, according to geologists we are due for a major earthquake (est. around 9) / tsunami that occurs on this part of the coast every 300 years or so. So we do our best to be prepared physically for that sort of thing. But far more importantly, we are also prepared spiritually. Thanks so much for sharing this!

  5. SO true. As someone has said, preparation time is never wasted. I believe daily prayer and time in God’s word will keep us spiritually ready for whatever comes, but we need to take care of the natural things, too! Good reminder!

  6. Very good reminder! Like Shelley said, we don’t get hurricanes or bad tornadoes here, but there can be wind or ice storms. My family has also learned to take extra food and water with us on hiking, sightseeing, or fishing trips, too, just in case.

  7. Oh Ginger! I didn’t realize you were in that area. *shiver* will be watching and checking with you next time!!

    Yes, we have food, water, some batteries and a genny. Part of my MK training is drawing water. LoL.
