Severe weather. Are You ready?

Severe weather. Are You ready?

hey everybody glad to see you again welcome back i just got one of those surprise messages where they come through your phone saying that there is severe weather not just potential for it but actual severe weather um that was heading into my town like they said like within the next 15 minutes and i knew this morning before i left work it was saying um on the weather that there was potential for thunderstorms or tornadoes etc but i thought that i would at least be able to make it through the work day but when the alert comes through your phone kind of like the amber alert except this is just a weather alert that’s pretty severe so i hurried up and you know talked to my co-worker and we both like booked out of there as quickly as we could notified everyone hey we’re gone and it’s just kind of crazy because it got really dark really really fast so looked out there she booked out of there and she biked all the way home i didn’t bike today because i had heard there was going to be rain um so i just got the first uber coming which was actually ended up being a really good deal because it was really close so got home got in pulled out one of my little um emergency backup power deals and and you know they’re not like super gigantic or super heavy but they do the job and that’s the main thing you know i like that it has a light on it if i need it if something crazy were to happen like the power of the word and while i can plug stuff up into it and i like that a lot too in fact the other day i was told that i believe it happened yesterday that the power went out during the daytime here in my neighborhood i was at work at the time or at least in different parts of the community there was a blackout there wasn’t a blackout on my job but there was a blackout in different places in the community and some folks that i know sent a text message and had it on their social media that that’s what was up i’m hearing the thunder now so i think i’m gonna hop up off of here but just wanted to jump on here and say this is one of those reasons why we should be prepared why we should have a backup plan i have a plan a plan b plan c you know because being prepared is not about like being a hoarder even though some people may think of things that way uh yes there are some things that you may need to put up for um so that you have what you need when you need it but it’s about things like this and as i mentioned on several of my previous videos whether or not you saw them i don’t know but when i first moved to minneapolis like three days after i moved minneapolis or somewhere around there it was pretty close to literally the first three days of my living in minneapolis there was a storm that knocked out all the power for seven days so the only lights that i had with cute little t lights and i put out a plate and i stuck them on the plate you know that way to be as safe as possible you put them in an area where they wouldn’t get knocked over and so i had tea lights for my light in the evening and the night time and i also use those tea lights with a stainless steel frying pan so that i can cook some simple things because that stainless steel heats up pretty quick and it just kind of like spreads the heat spreads evenly so it’s easy to make eggs and that kind of stuff but it’s going to be prepared one way or another make some notes of some things that you need to figure out and how you’re going to do this or that or whatever and have something that you can get started working on you know so that when the time comes you are ready for whatever comes up it doesn’t mean that you have to have everything or know everything because i don’t know everything i don’t know anybody that knows everything but it’s good to have a plan if the lights go out what are you going to do do you have a flashlight where are you keeping that flashlight so you have some water put aside in the refrigerator or stored somewhere you know you can get those gallon jugs filled from the grocery store and store them somewhere so that way if the power goes out or whatever you you got something that you can use for water to drink do you have things that are no cook items or easy cook items no cook items like peanut butter and jelly that you can put on bread or low cook items something that cooks really quick and if the power goes out you know how are you gonna cook it i wouldn’t be outside grilling in the rain um but i have this lightweight power supply that i can that i can use and do something in the air fryer or whatever but you know having some nuts put away or if you’re allergic to nuts do you have some canned fruit or vegetables or other things do you have you pickled eggs or anything that way you at least have some protein to go with your other stuff just some things to think about but like i said i hear the thunder and i’m gonna get off here for now because i think this thunderstorm is supposed to go for the next half hour so i will talk to you again soon have a great day
