Preparing for a storm - part 1
The one thing that all of us will have to deal with no matter where we live is inclement weather.
Sometimes that weather may just be a rainstorm, other times it could be a hurricane or tornado. No matter type of storm you may have to deal with it is a good idea to be prepared in advance.
I live in Florida which puts me in hurricane country. Add to that the fact that I lost my home in 1992 to hurricane Andrew and you will understand why I have some storm supplies.
One of my latest additions is my emergency radio. The little radio in the picture is one of the neatest little things I own. It only cost me about $50 but here is what it brings me.
A crank/solar/battery pwered AM/ FM/ SW1 & 2/Weather radio
A crank/solar/battery cell phone charger via USB.
An emergency red flashing light, SOS signal, flashlight, and reading light
This is a very handy tool. I may never use it, but if I need it I will be very glad I have it.
The radio is a Kaito Solarcrank KA500.
