Deep-Freezer Root-Cellar

I've seen a few people discuss this idea around the web, so I went surfing around and found a web-page that shows the concept well.

It's a great idea. I mean, how much does it cost to find an old freezer that no longer works, dig a hole, and bury it? On their web page, they also say it does wonders for keeping out rodents.


Quick Tip: The Window-Well Miniature Root-Cellar

Basement window wells can make quick, cheap and easy root-cellars. Try to choose window wells on the north side of your house to prevent excessive temperature deviations caused by the sun. Cut a piece of plywood to cover the opening and attach insulation to it, as well as insulating the inside of the well. If necessary, open the basement window to maintain a temperature between 32 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Making a mini root cellar is simple enough. You'll need an empty trash can, a shovel, some rocks, straw, plywood and hammer and nails.

    The most important survival item you didn't buy

    You might have a decent stockpile, a few guns and maybe even a small garden.

    Whatever the case, none of it will save you in a crisis without THIS.

    Right now, there is just one way to still get it. And it will soon be gone as well.

    If you thought the polar vortex was bad, wait till you see this

    The drastic drop in temperature has left numerous people in pure desperation.

    You might be its next target, as meteorologists are still uncertain of what's to come. The vast majority are afraid to go outside because of the life-threatening cold, as they would risk dying from frostbite and hypothermia in a matter of minutes... and their supplies are running out fast.

    Extreme weather events have become increasingly common in recent years and from the looks of it, we are in for even more. Much, much more. Meteorologists are still uncertain if the deadly cold will also spread out to the rest of the country, so it's best to prepare RIGHT NOW, while you still have time left.
