Natural Disaster Planning

On my way home from work last night my son called me and said he had something to talk to me about. I get home at almost 11:30pm and my son starts talking to me about doomsday planning. He wanted to know if he could start gathering supplies in case something happens. I let him know that instead of a doomsday planning his ideas can be used for a natural disaster planning. We spent the next 2 hours going through the pantry and my stockpile. I let him have some of the non-perishables out of the cabinets....things I know we won't be using any time soon. They are items I bought because the price was right. Next we hit my small stockpile of freebies I have received. I gave him all my samples (lotion, shampoo, conditioner, etc) and 1/3 of my full size products (toothpastes, deodorants). The only things I didn't really give him much of was our medical supplies as it is seriously low. I didn't include things like a camping stove, generator, etc.
