Question: We live at the top of a mountain, so in the event of a natural or man-made disaster, the pumps to get water up to us may not be reliable. I'd like to think we could survive a month or two if this situation were to occur. The area does get below freezing regularly during the winter months and up into the 90s on hot summer days.
I'd thought of splitting the potable water supply between some in the garage and the majority in blivet bags under the backyard deck. What is the ideal situation and how would I prep the area for the blivets and keep them from freezing over and bursting during the long cold winter months? What about incorporating both rainwater and snow melt into my survival water system?
