Emergency Lists

Yesterday I posted some concerns about Avian Flu, along with BenS's tongue-in-cheek suggestions for dealing with it. But in all seriousness, the hurricane Katrina and its aftermath led Ms. Eclectic and me to reassess our preparedness for possible emergencies.

Where we live, we are extremely unlikely to see serious flooding of the sort experienced in New Orleans or along major rivers. Our major concerns for the future include power outages, being snowed in, tornados, major ice storms (which can knock out the power for weeks on end), and avian flu.

So we did up some emergency lists. Here they are. I hope they are helpful. And if you have suggestions for altering them, please let us know.
