This week will be brief, because reasons. We’re trying to keep things from floating away with the recent torrential rains, watching the skies for those horrible twisty-cloud things, and work just took a left-turn into the somewhat surreal.
How are your preps going? We’re quite happy that we’ve kept up with our Electricity-Free Day practice; if (when?) the power goes out, we’re all set, and know what to do. Should the fates throw a tornado our way (possible, but not very likely, given the local terrain), we’ve got our go-bags and 72-hour kits, and can drag the animals quickly down into the cellar… We’ve water and to spare, in case of fires, so not much worry there. Big, natural-disaster type calamities, and we’re set.
So, when the wife’s friend calls–you know, the one who’s been hospitalized, the one who probably couldn’t cook a marshmallow, given a stick and an open fire–starts trying to advise us on preps for if a tornado should come through, it was all I could do to laugh.
Next week, unless something more interesting strikes me, I’ll give my thoughts on emergency lighting. Keep dry, out there!
