  1. Good ideas, we've had catastrophic weather here too, although we are in winter it's been flooding, windy, rainy, house roofs coming off etc. One thing worthwhile is keeping an emergency food box which we replenish we new canned and packaged goods every month, you just never know…

  2. Thank you for this most important list! We've been through hurricanes and tornados here where we live. Several times we've had to leave our home. I see that I should add some of the things you listed….including some clean knickers!! LOL!

  3. 2) Copies of all essential insurance documents. (Scan them onto a cd)
    I attach important scanned documents to an email I send to my own gmail-account. That way I always and everywhere have acces to my health-insurance, passport, drivers-license etc.
    Also very handy if you go on holiday.

  4. I agree with you that the world does not seem very safe these days. Maybe it has always been this way indeed, maybe the media make us fear what has always been there, but I feel differently about the world now than I did a few years ago.

  5. "My country is drowning. Rivers are bursting their banks, people are panic buying bottled water and old men are being ferried to hospital in rubber dinghies. And still the rain keeps on coming."
    Mine is burning up (Greece).
    Last winter for the first time in memory we had no snow. And now we are having a series of heatwaves and countless forest fires.
    This morning it was cloudy and the temperature was 17oC!!!!!!
    What peculiar weather! The BBC weather report had something about ocean currents causing all the changes this year.
    I have an emergency check list as well, but not in case of floods but in case of forest fires. I live next to a pine forest and the danger is very real.
