It’s time to do an assessment of the last 3 weeks …

How did your house fair? 
Do you have a lot of repair work to do on your house? 
How did you and your family fair mentally? 
Did you have enough food? 
What about water, did you have enough to meet your needs? 
Overall on a scale of 1 - 10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best, rate your assessment of how prepared you were.

  1. Living where I live, our house probably would be okay. We would have had water in the basement. But since our basement is only partially underground, the house would be okay. Since we live above the damn, we aren't in danger from a breach. If we were cut off from supplies, I know we would be out of drinking water. We would have rain water in the rain barrel from the catch system. We would have to filter and boil it though. With the wind, we may have had damage from trees. Dan keeps our trees trimmed but the neighbor doesn't and we are always worried in a big storm if their tree will come down and it would hit our house. We would still have food even if the selection wouldn't be all that great. We would be tired and a little overwhelmed but glad it is over so we can start moving on and cleaning up. Overall I say we are probably about 7 1/2 in our preparedness. Paula

    1. Paula, a 7 1/2 rating is really good! You go girl!!!

  2. I would say we are about a 7 in preparedness. We have water filters, rain barrels & plenty of food (I hope - would depend how long the flood waters lasted). My biggest concern would be the idea of National Guard evacuating us. Coming back would be pretty scary! Our house is situated pretty well unless the flood waters were REALLY high, Still, it is something to think about & reassess.

    1. Sandi, coming back after evacuation would be very scary with the potential to be heart breaking! A 7 rating is really good! You go girl!

  3. I would say we are at about a 7. We have plenty of food, supplies, water purifiers, and medical basics. We are at one of the highest points on Long Island so if we have flooding the rest of the island is gone. We have a generator, oil lamps, propane BBQs and heater. The one thing that would throw us for a curve would be a major medical issue. We used to have a nurse next door and across the street. Both have moved. We know basic CPR and medical care but nothing beyond. If we couldn't get to a hospital or have a doctor get to us then there would be problems. Thanks for doing the course on the blog this time. It was very interesting.

    1. Making Cents of It All, you are welcome! I hope it has been beneficial to you! A 7 rating is really good! You go girl!

  4. Likewise Patsy I would say we are a 7.

    We do have plenty of food here, our house is on high ground, we have rainwater tanks sitting on top of a garden shed so could access the water from there. Our town would also not get totally cut off in major floods either.

    We have identified a few areas where we could improve such as taps to the rainwater tanks so we didn't have to climb on the shed or on top of rainwater tanks to get water. Also we would also need a generator for just these situations.

    Thank you for a wonderful course I and we are learning a lot.
