This past July 4th weekend my family and I spent 3 days at the camp. This “3 days” is important – the gubberment says that after a disaster you can expect at least 72 hours before relief services are put into place.
While my kids were busy playing in the creek and shooting fireworks, I was thinking of the situation we were in. Even though this was an enjoyable weekend and everyone had fun, there were some serious situations that needed to be considered.
Infant Formula / baby food
My step daughter got pregnant 4 months ago while she was breastfeeding her first child – Joe. Joe is a fine young man who is 9 months old. After Kandi got pregnant with her second child, her breast milk dried up, forcing Joe to eat to artificial food.
While we were at the camp Kandi ran out of powdered formula. Its no big deal, we just drove the 15 – 20 miles back to town. On the flip side, what if we could not make the trip? What if there was no store with baby food stocks?
