What's in your blizzard survival kit?

Posted by   + Show Post

We're expected to get 12" or so by the time the storm ends, which isn't a ton in the grand scheme (hello, 3 feet in Boston!) but I still made sure to load up on supplies.

My must-have item(s) are baking ingredients, since baking doubles as a fun activity as well as a tasty treat in the end. I actually grabbed a whoopie pie kit this time, just for something different (and easy). :)

What do you stock up on?

Quoting Veni.Vidi.Vici.:

If I was in the blizzard it would have duct tape, diapers and booze. I would duct tape my kids mouths, put them in diapers and drink myself sleepy.

We dont. Never get snow here, so no need. We always fill up water pitchers, the bath tubs, and we have plenty of food for if the electricity goes out from Tornadic weather though.

When we lived outside of Boston(Weymouth), we used to stock up on food, candles and make sure we had a radio that would run on batterys.  That is about all I remember, it has been a while since we lived there :)

This. Plus the generator so I don't have to drag it through the snow, just in case.

Quoting UpSheRises:

I don't stock up on anything. I live in a snow state. We just get out our shovels and snow blowers and move on with our lives.

Nothing, I'm used to it. I live in southern ontario so it's not a big deal.

Now I can tell you what we have for hurricanes:

Bathtubs filled with water. 

1 gallon of water for drinking per person per day ( many you would not get how hot it is going to be after that hurricane knocks out power)

Enough food that doesn't require cooking for everyone for 10 days to 2 weeks.

Ziploc bag containing important documents, photos, medicines that is carried by someone at all times during the hurricane in case you have to leave.

Pet food for 2-4 weeks.

Generator filled and gas cans filled to run the freezer and other electrics as needed.

Charcoal for the BBQ

Batteries for all radios, flashlights, and toys

Beer, wine, whiskey, tequila, rum, vodka, gin, club soda, limes and lemons (If I am stuck with 90% humidity, 95 degrees, no AC, and bored kids who I have to keep lecturing not to go look for snakes, I am drinking)
