How Many Chicken Wings To Buy Calculator

Not sure how many chicken wings to make or buy as appetizers for your next get together?

How Much Water To Store For Hurricane Calculator

Trying to figure out how much water you should have on hand as you prepare for a hurricane or other disaster?

After having been through more than a few hurricanes, we'd recommend storing a 10 to 14 day supply. If your municipality loses power, or flooding compromises the water system, tap water won't be safe to drink. Sure, water and ice will get trucked in by the government around 3-5 days after a disaster strikes.
