It’s the middle of December and although you might think it’s cold now, keep in mind that January is the coldest month of the year. Winter is only halfway over, so it’s time to review the things we need to survive a disaster when it’s freezing outside.
When the power is out and the cold creeps into your home, it won’t be enough to huddle around a space heater. And if you find yourself stranded in your car on the side of the road, it won’t be enough to wrap yourself in a blanket. You need to have the right supplies on hand, a backup for your backup, and the skills to use them.
Recently Tin Hat Ranch published an excellent little winter survival guide. Although it’s mainly aimed at beginners, it’s full of good reminders for experienced preppers.
