I think having $1000 is a good safe number. At minimum, at least enough to fill up a tank of gas and hit the grocery store for a weeks worth of items. So maybe $300 minimum on the safe side?
But I'm the overly cautious person, and figure a months worth of bills (including your mortgage) in cash might be enough for the truly prepared.
Of course the REAL trick will be to have it and not touch it.
