Getting Prepared

It's raining outside - as it does about every afternoon at this time.
The thunder is treacherous sounding and is a daily reminder to get prepared for an emergency.
This morning the power went out, for maybe 3 minutes, but still long enough for me to contemplate if I had any idea where a flashlight was or what we would eat if the power stayed off.

A year ago I bought food for our 72-hour kits, then we ate it when 6 months rolled around, but I never bought replacement food. I might have to do MRE's again. Then I will only have to replace it every 5 years or so.

Here are some links to information I want to keep track of:
 365 Days of Premade Meals
72 hour kit - list of everything you could possibly need
72-hour kit easy meals
Freezer Bag Cooking
Year supply of food, one month at a time
Lessons From the Hurricane
