Sometimes it’s the little things that make your day.

I have a friend in Virginia who just recently put together her first emergency kit. This afternoon she sent me this text message:

“So, a big storm knocked out the power in my building, and I was starting to wonder how I would get up the stairs when I get home tonight. Then I remembered about the flashlight and batteries in my emergency kit! Yay preparedness!”

It’s always good to hear when friends and family have been inspired by the info we share here on the blog (and on twitter, facebook, and podcasts). And it just goes to show you never know when your kit will come in handy!
