    Still thinking about it...
  1. I bought another gas can Gatorade First Aid Burn Kit a few canned items We're now getting squash from the garden!
  2. Thanks for posting that link. I live 100 miles inland and Katrina "happened here." It's scary to think how people are so unprepared. It's not just hurricanes and bird flu we need to prepare for these days. I remember when 9-11 happened I had $20.00 in my purse. Scary!
  3. That's a good deal. I'll have to check my Lowe's.
  4. Honestly I'm not familiar with dehydrators and sealers. I think I would take inventory (if you haven't already) and then go from there. I've been stocking up on extra toilet tissue, paper towels, paper plates, cups, etc.. in case something happens. I won't want to waste a drop of water on washing dishes. If you feel comfortable with what you've already stocked, I'd go for the dehydrator and sealer. You can always use the remaining $75.00 for preps.
  5. Great post! I feel so much calmer when I take a look in my pantry. If anything happens, at least we have the peace of mind that we can eat/survive.
  6. I bought 4 Flents maxi-masks at Wal-Mart yesterday. I was surprised how cheap they were. The boxes were a little dusty so I'm guessing I'm the only one stocking up on those. Also bought some anti-viral Kleenex 12 double roll toilet tissue 8 pack paper towels 10 lbs. sugar bag of cornmeal I'll probably buy more tomorrow at the dollar store.
  7. I read some of the posts on that message board and just wonder what in the world it would hurt to stock up on some things? It's not like it will go to waste if it's stuff you already use. Some people!
  8. Oh no Rita! You had way more damage from Katrina than me then. We had to have most of our roof replaced (we'd only been here about 1 1/2 years when she hit), replace both sets of french doors, lost lots of siding, had a few split porch posts from flying tin from my DF's chicken houses, damage to our wood floor, and other stuff but who didn't have at least some damage? At least we didn't have any trees to fall on the house! Again, soooo sorry to hear about losing your new house.
  9. DH and I prepped some for Y2K, but not nearly what we would have needed if something had happened. I always had maybe a months worth of canned food on hand in our old house. We moved into our new house and four months later Hurricane Ivan hit. Before the storm I had less than 10 cans of food, no snack food, not much of anything. That was a wake-up call for me! I was running around like everybody else trying to find some stuff and was able to find bread and snacks at a little country store. Well, Ivan wasn't terrible and we never lost power, but I promised myself I would never be in that s
  10. I know some people on the MS Gulf Coast who are paying mortgages on slabs. Scary and sad.
  11. Still somewhat new to this, but this week I added: Another 6 pack bottled water 1 pack AA batteries 25 beef boullion cubes 25 chicken boullion cubes (don't think I spelled boullion right?) Italian salad dressing jar of cherries 12 double rolls toilet tissue
  12. Ya'll are too funny! I'm thinking I might have been able to catch that banana creme pie in my mouth before it hit anybody's blonde hair. Thanks again to everyone for the warm welcome. You'll be seeing a lot more of me. Don't run!
