We completed refreshing our earthquake water supply kit tonight.
Here in Burnaby on the west coast of Canada we are in an earthquake zone. We don’t get them that often, and usually when we do they are tiny. But historically there have also been temblors that (I love this quotation, though I don’t remember where I read/heard it) have “knocked cows off their feet.”
We keep 3 X 20L containers on hand. We also rotate through them for camping, so the water gets refreshed in the course of such activities, but we haven’t been camping in awhile.
So over the last couple of days we used a container a day to water our balcony garden and some shrubbery outside the front door.
We then refreshed the containers with a baking soda solution, let them air for awhile, and refilled them.
