Storms are coming- are you prepared?

stormy weatherIt’s Kansas, and it’s storm season here. If you’ve never been to Kansas, I recommend visiting this time of year to experience the majesty of a Kansas thunderstorm. It’s different than any thunderstorm I’ve ever experienced. Of course, we also have tornadoes, hail, and other weather hazards that make this time of year very interesting to say the least. We Kansans are experts in being prepared for bad weather, right down to our portable weather radios and water rations stowed away in the basement.

So what can we do to help you be storm and emergency ready? We carry all sorts of tools that you can add to your emergency kit.

  • LED Flashlights– These are great because they offer very bright light, last forever and require few battery changes. They are also small and very portable. I keep one by my bed, one in my son’s bedroom and one in our emergency kit
  • Extra Batteries– Obviously, these are important for your weather radios, flashlights, and honestly we always need AA batteries for one reason or another. Buying wholesale and in bulk is a great way to save money and a trip to the store
  • Smoke/Carbon Monoxide detectors– Necessary and life saving tools. 

So go get prepared- and if you do visit Kansas, stop by and say hello! We might even give you one of our cool “Get Lit” glasses!
