Watching the news the last several days made me wonder how many of us are prepared for a natural disaster.

When I first heard about possible severe weather last week, the first thing I did was check my pantry. The last thing I wanted to deal with was high blood sugar (in the middle of everything) if the worst were to happen, so I double checked what food I had that didn't have to be refrigerated in the case of an extended power outage.

I always have a backpack ready to go in the case of an emergency evacuation, but the one thing I am still working on is creating a waterproof notebook with plastic sleeves to add all important papers that could be needed in a worst case scenario. Are you prepared for storms?

I always have a "go-bag" specified that I can just throw meds and insulin in at last minute. I learned that lesson the hard way last year. My mom had to be taken to the ER so I just grabbed my morning meds and insulin that I needed that AM. She ended up being transferred to a hospital about an hour away and they needed me to ride with her because I have her POA (she had an aneurysm). So from now on if she ha to go to ER I grab that bag. We have an emergency kit in a storage container for hurricane season that has a copy of prescriptions and important papers along with batteries and other such stuff tat is needed for that time of year.
