Happy, Happy Friday Everyone!
I had a blast with our twitter series this week.
Maybe we can do another one next month?
What do you think?
Send in your questions and if we get enough I will move forward with the idea!
If you live in the Northwest you are aware of the windstorms heading our way. We had a little bit of the windstorm out here on Whidbey Island last night but nothing that kept us up.
Although the second storm does seem to be picking up and I just had a storm warning hit my phone saying thunderstorms are on the way.
Hopefully, you have already prepared yourself and your home for the windstorms.
Yet if you haven't here is a quick list of items you should have available:
Most resources like the Red Cross recommend a 3 days supply of water on hand per person in your home. If you can't afford to run out and buy water that's okay. Take the time to fill up empty milk cartons, glass jars, etc...
The important thing is to have some just in case.
2.First Aid Kit
It never fails in my house there is always someone who will stub their toe within the first 5 minutes of the lights going out. Or my favorite is when someone gets a paper cut from playing card games. Those are just minor things but it's always comforting to know there is a first kit available when we need it.
If you can not afford a first aid kit or you do not have access to one. Look up ideas on Pinterest. There are a lot of articles out there on how to do this on the cheap side. I don't think you would be able to accomplish this for free, but you may find you already have a lot at home that can be used to create your first aid kit.
If the electricity goes out at night you're going to want light. So grab your flashlights and some extra batteries. Candles work well too!
On a budget, that's okay the dollar store carries these items.
One per person would be the ideal situation. the loss of Electricity may mean the loss of heat. Therefore be prepared to keep everyone warm.
Nonperishable food is a great resource to have during a windstorm.
We do a lot of cup of soups at our house!
You don't necessary know how long the electricity may be out for so be prepared.
This is a very quick short list.
Look for more information at the Red Cross website, they provide a great resource for families.

Stay safe everyone!
