let's take our lesson...

Haiti is heavy on my heart and in my prayers as I'm sure it is with you.
We live in an earthquake zone. Although we live in this great country with resources, in a major emergency, we have to expect to rely on ourselves for at least a few days if not more. If we have extra, we can be of assistance to others who may not have prepared at all. We've all talked about it before and even made fits and starts (myself included) in putting together a 5-day emergency kit. Kathy came up with a relatively inexpensive freeze dried food source. There is also a company that does freeze dried meals. Here is a gluten free freeze dried food. John and Lori may have some ideas about good brands, but freeze dried lasts years and in some cases, decades. So you could buy it and leave it and not think about it. You can also buy canned food. When you are at the store and there is a sale, just buy 1 extra and stick in on a shelf or in your kit.
I know this is not exactly what we want to spend our precious free time doing, but it is prudent. I'm going to ask again, please do some preparations. If nothing else, clean water is critical,
and uh...toilet paper would be really nice too.
Let me know if you need help with this, I'm happy to help you.
C'mon guys, we can do this!
