Getting caught in a natural disaster can be very bad, especially if you are not prepared for it. Chances are that you'll probably never get caught in one: but if you do, even a little preparation can make an enormous difference

Sandy did make me buy a fire proof box for all my important papers. What I have not done is buy carriers for each cat if I ever had to leave my house.

Sure are a lot of things in that Go Bag.....plus everything else to take. When all in it, I likely couldn't pick it up. However, I do have survival things to live in place for awhile like water, canned food that doesn't need heating or cooking, lots of flashlights and batteries (and lots of candles) and a battery radio. Will have to rethink if I had to leave.

Good tips - the Go bag idea is great. I must say that I have been very lucky, not having any severe storms in Alberta, Canada. I can't even imagine what so many have been struggling with! God Bless Them.
Thank You for sharing Cher.
