Recently I was at the kids house and we were talking about disasters and being ready. I threw out the question if they were ready for sudden loss of water supply. Made me think about emergency preparedness and I asked myself a few questions from just one word topics. Water? Food? Electricity? Winter storms? Civil unrest? Makes me think and look over our plan and supplies. Just food for thought

Be honest, fair, and always prepared...

Always worth thinking about!

And part of that includes prioritizing the various threats, in terms of severity:

An unruly mob can kill you in a heartbeat. Lack of shelter in severe winter conditions can kill you in a matter of hours. Lack of water can kill you in a few days. While you can endure a lack of food for weeks if you have to. (Some of us, who have had the foresight to accumulate our own ‘emergency food stash’ around our waist, could last much longer than that!)

Depending on where you are, civil unrest and mob anarchy could deprive you of everything you’ve stocked in preparation.

My ideal homestead would be far from the nearest big city; and would include a water supply that wasn’t dependent on grid power. And of course, the means of defending me and those I love.
