On being ready...

Thanks to all who participated in my most recent poll about being ready in ten minutes to evacuate. According to the answers given, 25% of those who answered felt that they would be ready and organized, compared to 50% who feel that they would be semi-organized, and 12% each for the answers by those who figure they would manage without preparation and those who also haven't prepared and figure they would have some problems. I don't know if anyone would ever feel completely prepared for a scenario like that, but it would definitely help things to have practiced beforehand. The issues of medication being ready to go, (especially if refrigeration is required) as well as important documents, would be something that just not wanting to be hungry /thirsty/wearing same clothes for three days might not cover, so it is worth thinking about if you need more than a "typical" 72-hour kit.

Ah, the poll. One of the things that I have learned to do here on this blog that apparently would be entirely different if I switched to wordpress, according to what I have seen so far. I did do another post over there, and if I end up switching over, I'll let you know. Decisions, decisions...apparently making the leap entirely to switch when I don't comfortably know how to use wordpress is not a decision I'm ready to make today... :) Thanks for your patience, and thanks if you have visited my new blog! Until if/when I stop blogging here, I'll just put a link to a post on the other blog, if there is one, at the bottom of what I post here. Anyone who is using wordpress, would love to hear comparisons, pros/cons, etc...

The more you know...

...the better your blog address may be. Still trying to decide if I want to switch to wordpress, but I am learning more about it. If you would like to check out my latest post at the new site, it's here.

This blog was my first, hence I didn't know/think about the importance of the blog address, or I guess, the title, which when I look at it now, seems kind of long. :) Oh well. It is mostly about food storage, and it is an adventure, so I guess it's all good. I have gotten some feedback on the wordpress thing, so we'll see how it works out. The new blog's website address is:


Longtime readers may recall that I sometimes mess around with the background on this blog, and I have already changed it on the new blog from the first post. I'll most likely find something I'll stick with a while pretty soon--until I get bored with it again... If you check it out, I hope you enjoy it!
