Spring is here and we are way overdue for some violent thunderstorms, flooding and tornadoes in our area.
Thinking about what I have put away for emergencies. Done fairly well on food stuff, fuel for generator/vehicles, medical kits, and other stuff
one would need. It was/is a good time to store some treated fuel as it is cheap.
Bought a good generator last fall and wired a cut-off box to feed directly from the generator to the house, so that is done. As I mentioned made sure
I have plenty of fuel on hand as a generator can use it up in a hurry.
I bought and stored 15 or so cases of MREs some time back. Some are around 10-11 years old now. They were not cheap and I hate to part with them,
but can't keep them forever. I know MRE are good beyond their expiration date, maybe some loss of flavor, but how long is too long? They are
stored in my underground storm shelter, which stays fairly moderate temp wise both in winter and summer. BTW I have stored a number of other food
items so it is not like I am dependent on just the MREs in an emergency.
Anyone else currently doing anything on preparing for emergencies? Always nice to get some new ideas.
