Due to the massive severe serious tornadoes coming to my area later today, I'm getting a small survival bag going for my son and myself. I have wind up flashlights and extra clothing, debit card and heh a 5 dollar bill but sadly no wind up NOAA radio. I need to seriously spend the money to get a true bob (Bug out Bag) for scenarios like this. This right now is making me realize just how NOT prepared I am for a shtf scenario - which right now, all of us in the deadly dangerous zone are looking down the barrel of a loaded gun which will go off mere hours from now. I don't even have bottles to put water in for heaven's sake.
If we survive this - and I"m praying we will - I'm remedying this immediately. I do have a small first aid kit, the wind up flashlight... but we need more than that. And I've been freakin' reading survival topics on here for ages now but using the excuse 'I don't have enough money'. GOD if I woulda started spending 2 bucks here, 5 there six months ago, we'd be fine right now.
I'm shaking so hard right now, feeling like a huge failure and if anything happens, I put my kid into danger due to my irresponsible lack of preparing and 'waiting to have a couple hundred dollars to spare for a survival bag'.
If anything, take that regretted hindsight of mine and do your own BOB asap. You never know when something like this is going to hit and what it will do. I don't wish my current terror and regrets on to anyone.
