Taking a lesson from the flooding and refreshed our quake/disaster Go bags today.
They are backpacks that we keep at the front door with changes of clothing, rain jackets, toques, heavy socks, mittens, emergency sleeping shelter (a reflective sleeping bag that weighs a few ounces), flashlights, extra batteries, granola bars, chocolate, water, Life Straw personal water filter, fixed-blade knife with a fire-steel in the handle, first aid kits, etc. . .
His and hers.
Oh, yeah, also a Zip bag full of cat food and a small carrier.
