Peak Moment TV to air soccer mom and preparedness on WCKN-TV Dec. 19, 20
POTSDAM – Peak Moment TV will present Soccer Mom Prepares for the Unexpected as its next show slated to air at 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 19 and 20 on WCKN-TV.
Peak Moment TV host Janaia Donaldson talks with soccer mom and preparedness author Kathy Harrison. Kathy makes getting ready for the next big surprise like a storm, power outage, or economic downturn not only a good idea, but fun to do, as well.The author of Just in Case: How to Be Self Sufficient When the Unexpected Happens gives practical tips on storing food without getting overwhelmed. She looks at dehydrating, canning, and root cellaring; finding and preserving local food, and buying food at discount. For Kathy, preparedness is an empowering, community activity.
Following her suggestions fits right in with daily life, rather than being big project you need to mount (and never get around to). She emphasizes not doing it alone — just like our ancestors did — share the work, share the tools, and have a good time being together.
Kathy says, “I have a ball preserving food with my friends!” And at the same time she is making sure her kids can eat if storms knock out power or roads. See more at justincasebook.wordpress.com. One this is certain, the unexpected will happen, sooner or later.
