This morning I was in bed, but awake, when I heard my chiwawa mix (Faith) come through the house into my bedroom and set down beside the bed. When it’s early and she wants to go out she will ease into the bedroom as quietly as she can, then set and stare at me to see it I’m awake…
Well anyways, I got up and took her outside and the morning air made me realize just how close we are to fall and then winter. I hope that the balloon doesn’t go up in winter, winter make everyday life more difficult and in a major long-term grid down situation, the cold would no doubt contribute to many not making it.
Cold and difficulty caused by it is one of the main reasons, that I prefer Tennessee over say, Montana or Idaho as a retreat location. Severe weather makes survival more difficult, as long as the electricity is on, the gas still flowing, and the chainsaw still run, fighting the cold isn’t that bad (bad enough) but take those away and survival gets much more difficult.
My point is; assume that the crash will come in winter and prep accordingly…
But I digress, from the purpose of today’s post, and that is what did we do to prep this week, but first I would like to say thank you and give a big shout-out to Angela M, Tanya H, Walter W, Kelli M and Willard N for their generous contributions via Paypal this week, thank you.
Okay, what did I do to prep this week…
Well folks, that’s it for me this week, what about you. What did you do to prep this week?
