Tornado question UPDATE!!!! EDIT WITH QUESTION!

Posted by   + Show Post

i am getting ready for the storms that is coming thru kansas and i need help thinking of stuff to take downstairs to the basement

There are already snacks and water downstairs

shot records

birth certificates

medicine

drivers license

(kids rooms are downstairs so they have clothes and such down there)

anything else??

 

I THINK I AM READY FOR IT TO COME. DH IS STILL SLEEPING (HE WORKS OVERNIGHTS ) AND IF SOMETHING SHOULD GO BAD I WOULD WAKE HIM. ONLY THING MAYBE IS CLEAN CLOTHES FOR DH AND I

Am i being silly for getting prepared?? my sis in springfield says i am stressing out (i dont think i am ) and its making my children stressed out. honestly i think i am just being smart. my oldest is worried but he is always stressing about stuff like that

first aid kit small stash of tools in case you need them and work gloves to clear debris in case you need to dig your way out also trash bags so when its done you can start picking up the pieces list of phone numbers that you may need

Its boring... and we have tornadoes lol

Its really not bad.. people help each other out like family here, and the cost of living is lower than mass.

1 mom liked this
Also it never hurts to call the fire department and police department to ask where they are setting up aid stations and resources. Also any other information they want you go know like what number to call if you need help or to report something. 911 get insanely tied up and can make it impossible to get through to get help
