When I lived in my old house, we were in an ideal place for severe weather. It seemed like every spring and summer, we were in the line of a severe weather outbreak. As a matter of fact, I had to have the roof on that house repaired 4 times in the sixteen years that I lived there, because it was blown off due to high winds and tornadic activity in the area.

During the time that I lived in that house, I kept a severe weather basket prepared in the downstairs closet under the stairs. It seemed like the safest place to be in the event of a terrible storm. That closet was big enough for me and my children to all get inside, and wait out the weather. I had a basket in there that had blankets, a change of clothes for each of us, flashlights, extra batteries, and some cash, along with some snacks and bottles of water. While I never had to actually use those emergency supplies, I felt like I was well prepared if a tornado blew our house away. Just the action of preparing for severe storms made me feel better.
