[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NDEyODU1XzkyRDVBMDIy] Basics: Getting water from your hot water tank http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Emergency-Drinking-Water-from-a-Water-Heater I like this brief article. While many people know that the water is there, many don't know how to get the water out. It has some important tips in it which explain how to practically remove the water and avoid contamination issues. The most likely issue you'll have is sediment in the bottom of the tank. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IK8yRhf0c4[/youtube] You should be checking to see if you have sediment issues NOW, not when you need that hot water. Do you know where your electrical panel is? Do you know how to shut off the gas to your hot water tank? It will be one or the other. Do you know how to shut off the incoming water line? Flushing a hot water tank often has to come from the top not the bottom if it's severely clogged with sediment. Obviously if you wish to drink that water, you need a pristine hose. New hoses might have a rubbery taste, so they need to be flushed prior to using them for this purpose. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZbw35csSOU[/youtube] Would you drink that? This is why you need to check your tank for sediment today, not later when you need it. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
