Emergency Preparedness: When you lose the grid

Just the other day my wife and I re-learned the value of preparedness, when, during a snow storm we lost power for 18 hours.

We had much of what was necesary.  We were set in terms of an adequate supply of food, warmth and lighting.  Just no supply of electricity.  I had a generator that would power much of what I needed but it was inadequate to power my well pump.

To read more about preparedness, check out Leon's article on cooking off the grid.  It's an interesting read.  Go here.
