The smartest way to approach surviving a natural disaster or food supply chain disruption is to think of yourself as going camping and what you will need in order to survive. Not only for yourself, but those who are in your household.
Since we are exiting the Summer months and entering the Fall, which means coming upon the colder months, you need to think of yourself as going camping during the cold. Not only will you have to consider how you will stay warm, but how you will prepare or cook your food, which will then determine the food(s) you buy. There is also the awareness of how to keep the food cold if the power goes out. We will get to that too.
Obviously, having a generator is right up there as best case scenario if the power goes out for an extended period of time.
For instance, when it comes to refrigeration, if the doors of the refrigerator stay closed, food will stay safe for up to: 4 hours in a refrigerator. 48 hours in a full freezer; 24 hours in a half-full freezer.
So let's just say purchasing a generator is out of financial reach or is not available to you at this time, meaning all of the generator rentals are out, you will need to do some prepping to prepare. Enjoy the site and links above and below.
