Seeing the struggles on the East Coast, as well as witnessing what happened during a big blackout we had last year (or was it the year before, time goes so fast I lose track), I've been building a small stockpile of emergency supplies.
If you add a thing or two every year, it is painless and can make all the difference in how you fare through an emergency.
Not least of which, don't wait until you are on E to fill up your vehicle. A couple for friends had a very tough time getting home during the blackout since traffic was at a crawl. They almost ran out of gas since they DO wait until E all the time. It's a simple preventive measure.
Hope all are well. Have a good day.
(p.s. Hours after writing this, I thought of one more thing I've heard recently. Keep some emergency cash at home because ATM's won't work if power goes out. Including stores' registers.)
