“This is a little grim, but I have a suggestion for a Friday Question of the Day: Do you have an emergency supply kit, and if so, what does it contain? We were here during 9/11, and kept emergency supply-type stuff on hand for a while, such as flashlight, radio, batteries, water, non-perishable food, and extra cash. My mom even sent plastic sheeting and masks in the event of some kind of chemical attack! I don’t know if you were in DC then, but I recall the general sense was that people were waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Anyway, we’ve probably gotten complacent, and the kit has been picked over during the years. Pretty sure we used that plastic sheeting as drop cloths when we painted. I’d be interested in hearing if other people keep emergency supply items or a “go bag” on hand, and if so, what do they have?”


Keeping the poll simple but curious to read the specifics people keep in the comments.
