Thunderstorms and Mini Flashlights!

Hi Neighbors!

Well, I think we finally made it to spring, but now we are experiencing thunderstorms!  Of course today it is extremely cold again, but the storms have me wondering, how prepared are you for when these type of storms hit?  My husband is a flashlight collector!  If there is a new style of flashlight at a good price he almost always gets at least one.  We have had crank flashlights, huge flashlights, heavy-duty flashlights and of course the Mini Flashlights.  Now I personally like having a mini flashlight in my purse and at least one in the vehicle, especially on trips.  One of the storms we had recently our power flickered on and off a few times, so I figure it is time to start making sure we have the flashlights in working order.  You know they all actually turn on and work!

I also like to have bottled water, candles, matches, and of course food that does not have to be cooked.  I hate to have a storm hit and have to run around looking for things when the power goes out.  I want these items kept in a certain place so we have them when the need arises.

Do you prepare ahead of time for the storm season?  What do you try to have on hand?  Leave a comment and let us know what you do to be prepared.

See you soon At the Fence!

We do prepare for storms and outages. I keep our candles and lighters and wind-up radio in a certain area.

Lots of great pointers! Thanks. We have a wind up flashlight that we keep right by our bed and this has come in very handy. Also try to keep several candles nearby.

we had 2 big storms here in southern WV last year that took out the power so because of that I got into prepping. I have starting doing the 72 hr kits and a few other things along the way.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
