Where do you live?

Winter is fast approaching here in Northern Utah which means drastic changes to the climate. There is the old joke of: "If you don't like the weather in Utah, wait five minutes." This unfortunately holds some truth - it can change for the better or the worse in a matter of a few minutes. So.....

What does that mean for me?

Are you prepared for the weather/seasons in which you live? If you live in an area that is hot and dry are you prepared with more water and a way to cool yourself in the hot summer months? Or what about the winter - can you keep yourself warm and dry?

Now that I have you thinking - here are some suggestions/thoughts (specifically for winter).
- Extra blankets
- Socks, shoes and warm clothes in 72 hour kits
- Pocket warmers
- Mittens/gloves/hats
- Clear plastic sheeting (can be put over broken windows - keeps in heat and allows light in)
- Heater (I will talk about types more fully in another post)
- Wood
- Tarps
- Stuff to make a fire (Survivor has proved it's not as easy as you think)

Think about camping in a snow storm - what would you need?
