The devastating floods in Alberta are tragic reminders that the worst can happen when we least expect it. So it pays to be prepared, just in case.
Some thoughts that come to mind? Prepare a box with food, water, basic medicine and first aid, flash light, radio, batteries, a hard drive of documents and photographs, photocopies of important papers like birth certificates, passports, insurance policies, an extra set of keys. And possibly a bag with a change of clothes, footwear and basic toiletries. And cash. Cold hard cash.
Sending thoughts and best wishes for the flooding victims. I married an Albertan – you’re good people – you’ll get the job done – you’re proving it every day.
