So how did you do on week 1? I would love to hear feedback from you.
On to week #2
At the hardware store purchase:
Crescent wrench (or maybe you have an extra laying around that you can put in your preparedness toolkit).
2 flashlights with batteries
A leash or carrier for your pet (if needed)
Check your house for hazards. Secure loose objects that may fly.
Locate your gas meter and water shutoffs and attach a wrench near them for emergency use. If you are like most people in the county, you have rural water and it wouldn’t be very easy to store a wrench in the meter pit, so put it somewhere close so you can get the water shut off quickly.
