While its fresh in everyone's minds with the weather the last couple of weeks and over the last couple of years. How would you prepare for a flood in your home or how would you get home if your area was flooded ???
Personally im lucky as i live high up in my area but i still have (cant think what they are rally called) self inflating sandbags X 50 these are ideal for storing as the swell up by soaking up water they don't take up the weight of normal sand bags and no mess at all. I also have wellies for everyone and rain leggings and jacket set up beside them with a roll of duct tape (to keep the leggings taped to the wellies) plus our bug out bags and a lot of extra drinking water are also upstairs I need to sort out a couple of luggable loos just in case i need to block the toilet if the sewers back up (dry reaching just thinking about it) Looking at the size of the hail stones that hit the uk yesterday ive moved the marine ply ive cut for the sky lights up stairs just in case (and hammer and nails)
Last October when we had the flooding in Dublin I walked home from work I had my get home bag with me with an emergency poncho in it. I was still soaked to the skin by time i got home so leggings are now added with a good poncho and change of clothes are in my locker in work as I work out doors a lot
Just interested in ideas that anyone has or what they have done
the flood bags
