We have had several comments and questions about the Swine Flu recently. We had a reader refer us to this video which we find to be VERY helpful in explaining Swine Flu and helping us to assess how worried we should be.
This is a good time to re-evaluate our food storage supplies. If swine flu spreads to your area and you want to avoid going out in public, make sure you have actual MEALS that you can make without going to the store. Our Three Month Supply foods would be great for this.
Several of our readers have written in asking us to remind people to add some emergency items in to their non-food items list. Two of the main items recommended to help prevent swine flu are face masks and hand sanitizer. In some areas of the country you can’t even buy these things at the store right now, let alone stock up on them. So if you are still able to get them, it wouldn’t hurt to add them to your food storage.
Stay safe and check back tomorrow because we have a special handout for your HUSBANDS to help make this Mother’s Day your best one yet!
