      Also, emergency food for humans and dogs, a lot of bottled water, extra torches around the house, bottled bleach, and we'll fill the bathtub with water for flushing toilets. A well stocked first aid kit  This is my friend's stockpile, however she lives alone BUT she also has the benefit of a generator.

      Our emergency kit. A small propane heater, with extra gas canisters, a carbon monoxide alarm which runs on batteries, a rechargeable camping light with extra torches which run on AA batteries, a small camping stove hob with extra butane canisters and a cellphone recharger with handy LED light

      Just to clarify, I'm not a tax expert either but had to consult with various tax experts and read a lot to understand what should be done in our situation. @Gary van der Westhuizen I don't think you would physically pay tax in both countries (that could be all your money lol). For a few months after moving here I received a salary in SA with PAYE already deducted, so paying tax to SA. When submitting my tax return in Canada I was able to claim a "tax credit" in Canada because I already paid tax to SA on that income so I didn't have to pay tax again on that income in Canada. The same with submitting a tax return in SA - earning money in Canada now I can claim a foreign income tax exemption, which is not a refund but rather an amount with which they reduce the tax that you owe them. This is just for normal income tax, it gets more complicated with other types of tax.

      Being prepared for Winter also means having the means to survive through possible harsh Winter storms with resultant "emergencies" This is the current projection of the storm due to hit the Maritimes late Sunday. With our last big winter storm a few weeks ago, many - if not most - of the Island households and many others on the Mainland, were without electricity for anything between one day and 4 days (or more)
      Our particular household is vulnerable in that we're right on the coast so we have no buffer between us and the wind, plus we have electric heating and an electric waterpump… so if we lose power it means no heating, no drinking water, no water for flushing toilets…  Many people have a wood burning stove or a propane fireplace (wish list for us, also a generator)
      So we have to make certain preparations
