Hot!


Today could well be the hottest day I since I started writing this blog. It is hot everywhere. Over one million people are still without power after last Friday night's storm. They have to be suffering.

Pastor and Shawnee Nation Story Teller Fred Shaw passed along some basic survival tips many have had to test out this week:

■Step one – keep a food log
■Step two – keep a spending log
■Step three – perform a risk assessment on your life and geography
■Step four – build a basic black out kit
■Step five – build a basic first aid kit
■Step six – start canning
■Step seven – cut two expenses, just two of your choosing
■Step eight – Build a basic 72 Hour Kit – BOB
■Step nine – buy some source of back up power – any source
■Step ten – get some source of back up heating
■Step eleven – build two 7.5 gallon tubs or four 5 gallon buckets emergency food
■Step twelve – store a minimum of 50 gallons of water, more if you can
■Step thirteen – acquire a minimum or two emergency radios
■Step fourteen – acquire some means of back up communications
■Step fifteen – build a basic documentation pack
■Step sixteen – build up a 30 day supply or commercial long term storage food for your house hold
■Step seventeen – learn at least 2 methods of food storage
■Step eighteen – find a local farmer’s market and visit often, learn about seasonal opportunities
■Step nineteen – learn to cook 5 items you have never eaten before with storable items
■Step twenty – store up a reasonable amount of COH (cash on hand)

As simple as these are, we were missing some of these basic survival ideas. We have all become so dependent on the store next door I plan to do better in these crazy times that are catching me just a little too off guard!

Stay cool and keep the faith!

  1. EMERGENCY STEPS
    Step 1: Have a Family Plan
    Disasters don't wait for everyone to get home first before striking. Your kids might be at school, and you could be out running errands or at busy at work. Knowing where to find each other will bring all of you peace of mind. Pick a place where you will all meet up in the event of an emergency.
    Second, establish one person who you can all contact, preferably outside your community - or even better, outside your state. Have everyone in the family memorize that phone number so that you always have a way to get in touch.
    Step 2: Assemble these basic emergency supplies
    Keep emergency supplies in your home and refresh them every six months. Pack them into duffel bags or back- packs so you can grab and go if you have to get out in a hurry.
     Water (3 days' worth per person, 2 week supply for home)
     Food—nonperishable, easy-to-prepare items (3 day supply for evacuation, 2 week supply for home)
     A first aid kit: Whether you buy a first aid kit or put one together, make sure it has all the items you may need. Include any personal items such as medications and emergency phone numbers or other items your health-care provider may suggest. Check the kit regularly. Make sure the flashlight batteries work. Check expiration dates and replace any used or out-of-date contents. The Red Cross recommends that all first aid kits for a family of four include the following:
    o 2 absorbent compress dressings (5 x 9 inches)
    o 25 adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)
    o 1 adhesive cloth tape (10 yards x 1 inch)
    o 5 antibiotic ointment packets (approximately 1 gram)
    o 5 antiseptic wipe packets
    o 2 packets of aspirin (81 mg each)
    o 1 blanket (space blanket)
    o 1 breathing barrier (with one-way valve)
    o 1 instant cold compress
    o 2 pair of non-latex gloves (size: large)
    o 2 hydrocortisone ointment packets (approximately 1 gram each)
    o Scissors
    o 1 roller bandage (3 inches wide)
    o 1 roller bandage (4 inches wide)
    o 5 sterile gauze pads (3 x 3 inches)
    o 5 sterile gauze pads (4 x 4 inches)
    o Oral thermometer (non-mercury/non-glass)
    o 2 triangular bandages
    o Tweezers
    o First aid instruction booklet


     A battery powered radio, or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible)
     Flashlights and spare batteries (hand-crank generated one)
     Medications (7day supply) and medical items
     Glasses & contacts
     Multipurpose tool
     Sanitation and personal hygiene items
     Spare keys A corded phone, Cell phone with chargers
     Matches
     Can opener
     Copies of important documents – medication list & medical information, bank account numbers, birth certificates, passports, insurance information and tax returns - stored in a waterproof bag or small box
     Family and emergency contact information
     Extra cash
     Emergency blanket, sleeping bags
     Map(s) of the area
     Games and activities for children
     Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl)
     Two-way radios
     Whistle
     N95 or surgical masks
     Rain gear
     Towels
     Work gloves
     Tools/supplies for securing your home
     Extra clothing, hat and sturdy shoes
     Plastic sheeting
     Duct tape
     Scissors
     Household liquid bleach

    Papers to stash away in your permanent file. Keep the following documents forever:
     Records that relate to your home (mortgage, deeds, capital improvements, etc.)
     Documents showing non-deductible and deductible IRA contributions
     Tax returns and checks used to pay taxes or to substantiate deductions.
     Once those papers are safely tucked away, grab your trash bag because here we go!

  2. "FOX19) - Friday's record smashing high temperature of 104° was a very rare event in Cincinnati. The old record for July 6th was 98° set in 1874.

    The official temperature is measured at the International Airport, CVG, which has been the official temperature since 1947. The 104° temperature measured there on Friday was the hottest ever recorded at The Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport.

    SLIDESHOW: Summer Storm Damage


    Click for images of the recent storms that hit the Tri-State.
    Before 1947, the official temperature was measured in a variety of places in downtown Cincinnati, and for a while after that, the Abbe Observatory in Clifton.

    The number of days the official temperature has been at 104° or hotter in Cincinnati history is 14, including Friday.

    On one day in Downtown Cincinnati, the temperature was observed at 104°in 1881 and on another in 1901, it hit 105°.

    All 11 other high temperatures 104° or hotter were in the Dust Bowl years of 1934 and 1936."
