I live in the DC area and this past weekend was crazy with that storm. Many folks in my area are still without power and will be until the end of this week. I realized during the storm that I don't have an emergency kit prepared. Need to get on that. How many T1s (who use pumps) have an emergency kit prepared? If so, what do you keep in it?
Also, how do you keep insulin cool in the event of a power outage? Thankfully, we only lost power for about 12 hours. I put two vials in my purse within a Frio pouch and surrounded the rest in my fridge with ice packs. It stayed pretty cold (definitely no warmer than 65 degrees or so), so it's fine. But given there was NO ICE to be found anywhere in our area, I'm wondering what I would have done if our power had been out longer. The only idea I could come up with was putting it all in Frio pouches (I have several) and storing it in our basement (which stays pretty cool, even without AC). With no power, the upper two floors of our house quickly reach temps above 85 degrees. Any tips?
