Not too long ago, in one of the local groups I’m in on Facebook, someone shared about a homestead that was being given away in a contest. Here in Oklahoma.

We’ve had two very close calls with tornadoes in the last year. Not to mention sporadic earthquakes, wildfires, and the possibility of extreme cold. We are not prepared in the slightest, and we’re going to change that with an emergency kit.
