In a couple of months it will be hurricane season again and I will drag out all my supplies and list to make sure I have everything ready for the next 6 months.Â I feel its very important to always be prepared and hope for the best but prepare for the worse.
One thing that I don’t have on my list is a Portable Diesel Generator. If a major hurricane hits, which it did a few years ago, our electricity could be out for days and it would be great to keep the fridge and freezer going for food supplies.
Recently, I worried about my family and friends as the Winter Storm of 2009 devastated Southeast Missouri.Â Everyone lived without heat, electricity and water for over 1 week.Â Some for over 2 weeks in very cold weather.Â There were a couple of larger stores who had 15kw Generator and was able to pass out food and keep what they had cold or frozen with some electricity.Â There were a couple of safe havens with generators where people could go to warm up and eat a good meal for the day. Â Those Diesel Generators kept people going during such aÂ difficult time.
No one can ever predict a weather disaster and no one would have ever expected that an ice storm would cause over 1 million people to be without power.Â Generators work and may save a life in your future.
