This is new to me, but, the way things are going, I'm afraid not to start getting ready for an emergency! I live in a very small community with less than 800 people. Everyone is on a private well, and in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. This frightens me if we should lose power. In the summer, daytime temps often exceed 120 in the shade and well over 140 in the full sun. We have rattlesnakes--which scare me beyond reason. Lots of small game-rabbits, quail, and doves, so I know I would not lack for meat. Don't know how well I'd like coyote, but could find out if necessary. Storing well water is something I don't know about. My husband is retired and has parkinson's disease and is diabetic, so that worries me too.
