Readers Respond: Power Outages and Pet Emergency Preparedness

From the article: Storm Preparation Tips

If you are on a well that needs electricity to deliver water, storing drinking water is a valuable tip. Besides having food and water available, what else do you do to make sure you and your pets are safe when the power is out? Have you learned something from a previous power outage that would serve as a good reminder or tip for others?

Please share them here.

re: Power Outage-plan for pets

Like you, we have a well so any planning you do for yourself should include your pet - it's only common sense. Draw up gallons of water - use old milk jugs that have been washed out. Winter is always worse; we have been thru 2 ice storms where we were without power for days - if you can't have a generator, what would you do for yourself for warmth? Do the same for your pet. Of course, I'm thinking small pets, not horses etc. EDITOR'S NOTE: We finally got a generator, too.
