When the subject of Prepping comes up there are many facets which can be equated with the reason for Prepping. Many people in regions where severe weather is a perpetual problem are preparing to deal with the effects of a weather related emergency situation. It was actually the ice storm of 2009 which devastated almost the entire state of Kentucky that opened my eyes to the potential danger of being unprepared. We were without power for 3 weeks while others went longer. The first week two of the grocery stores actually opened for a few hours a day on generator power accepting cash only until their supplies ran out. My supply of cash didn’t last as long as the groceries did. The grocery supplies only lasted for about 4 days. There were stores open within driving distance but many residents had no access to their funds since the small town local banks were without power and there was no guarantee that your ATM card would work at banks in non-affected areas.
