Do you have a "hurricane kit"?
I guess this could go for anything like "blizzard" or "tornado" as well. Do you have a "kit" you keep ready, at all times? Most people run and get things before a forecast even happens, but some people are already ready. Are you? Maybe a box full of non-perishable foods, flashlights, candles, batteries, etc...? Something that would last you and your family a few days without power.
As for me, I don't have a "kit", but think I may put one together. I usually have things around the house, but pulling them all together isn't what I'd call "being prepared" :-)
If you do, what do you have? Has it come in useful in the past?
