Remember the Ducks?


So, are your ducks in a row yet? It was almost a year ago when I first posted these ducks - now they are back. No, my ducks are not in a row yet. After this weekends tornados and power outages, I have a renewed interest in being prepared.
I'm making the rest of March and the month of April my "water" month. We have to buy bottled water because our well water has a bad taste. So, I'm just going to buy a lot more and rotate it out. I figure it would be hard to cook or do anything without enough water, so this is where I'm starting. It's a small step, but it seems like something we can do without being overly ambitious. In May I'll pick a new, necessary item(s) and go from there - something new each month.
Here's a link to the original "duck" post: http://christypeake.blogspot.com/2007/04/are-your-ducks-in-row.html

No Christy, my ducks are not in a row either. Great suggestion!! I think I'll start with water too. I wander if they make caffiene packets like the crystal light ones that I can add to the bottled water if I get thirsty...LOL
just kidding.
It's easy to forget about our "emergency" stash until something like the tornadoes happen so close to us. Thanks for the reminder that we all need to have our ducks in a row!!
