I received this email tonight, and it really touched my heart. Thank you, Laura.
I wanted to reach out to you because I found your website last fall when I was bracing for a hurricane and had a 3 week old. I had not thought before he arrived about what to do in an emergency. But since
finding you I have slowly begun to change some things for long term storage and safety for my family.
We have since been through a blizzard that had us stuck indoors for several days, and last Friday, we were sequestered unexpectedly in our home for 15 hours due to the Boston bombing manhunt. It hit very close to home emotionally and physically, but, I was prepared, thanks in part to you.
Since the fall, I have begun stocking up on water and have a freeze dried food delivery each month. I have also made a list of items I want to have on hand for “green living” such as a solar oven, and have begun requesting these items for holiday and birthday presents, etc. I have stocked up my emergency kit supplies in the hall closet and continue to discuss with my husband different scenarios of where we would go if we needed to leave our home in an emergency.
We have friends and neighbors who were caught off guard on Friday, with empty cabinets, a sense of helplessness, and they were worried about being stuck in their homes for days. In my family, that was one less thing to worry about amidst all the chaos of the day. I am truly grateful to you for your dedication to helping others be safe. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
