It seems the theme lately is “Weather Preparedness”. Do you have bottled water? Do you have helmets? Do you have blankets and snacks? Do you have ...(fill in the blank)? But have you cleaned out your shelter?
When do people really check to see what’s in the dark crevasis of the shelter? Because waiting until it’s dark and storming seems like the WRONG time to find out that Black Widow was hiding in the corner. Whether you have an above ground Steel Safe Room or a Concrete Storm Shelter, bugs and creepy crawlies can get into any dark cool place.
We had our Steel Safe Room installed last spring by Storm Shelters Direct of OKC. You can bet this spring I’ll be cleaning out the shelter and checking the stock pile of weather preparedness supplies. Water, Check!... snacks, Check!...blankets, Check! spider-free helmets and spider free tornado shelter, double Check!
