Cooking On the Woodstove
Coffee, Soup Bubbling, Pizza warming--this was the first day--when I was still optimistic :-)
Day Whatever---Eggs, Coffee, Kinda Toast
Next to food, water and heat, here is what I keep in my 'survival kit'.
Starting in the middle at the bottom and working clockwise: C batteries for my really old tape recorder, a list of what batteries I need to have on hand, replacement wicks for the kerosine lantern, a battery operated lantern (This is something I didn't have on hand, but longed for), Fliplight to read by (this is also a new purchase!), battery candle light (not a strong light, but helpful to carry around and keep by the bed etc.), Kerosine lantern (used as a decorative piece when not in duty), and lamp oil (not pictured), battery operated transistor radio (a must have, otherwise the isolation is overwhelming), emergency candles (burn longer than regular candles), matches, D and 9 volt batteries, and decorative candles (to make your house smell pretty and lift your spirits). I keep most of this stuff on hand in my 'surival kit' box, but added a few things after the ice storm that I wish I had had. And I do have to admit some of this stuff is left from the Y2K stockpiling scare! ;-)
