No it’s not Armageddon…. but it is a great example of why we should prep

September 17, 2017

…whether a forest fire or earth quake blocking roads or a hurricane or tornado destroying everything in its path, the results are the same the peoples lives touched by these disasters are forever altered. No man can predict what these storms and natural disasters will do, nor can we foresee where to live to avoid mother natures at times violent hand. We can however use common sense and be prepared for for almost any eventuality.

Over the years I have been writing this blog I have made a number of postings about off-grid living and prepping, and it is evident today more than ever that everyone even those living in major cities should be prepared for a worse case situation. Form the following photographs we see what waiting until the disaster is upon us leads to.

Grocery shelves empty of supplies

and hours in line to get what supplies are left

The simple act of storing 10 or 20 gallons of water, a week or two of some emergency food like military MRE’s, (meals ready to eat), or a closet full of caned goods at the same time having a camp stove and some spare propane bottles will soften the pain in the weeks after a storm. If one was to have a small generator and a couple large batteries that would quell the anguish of spending many long nights in the dark, plus for those in hotter states they would be able to run, not air conditioners but at least fans.

The penalty for failing to prepare before the need
is spending days and even weeks in emergency shelters

…and relying on others to supplying us with what we need to live

 

A storm or natural disaster
dose not differentiate between rich or poor
so if you were blessed to not be effected
by the tragedies now unfolding
isn’t it time
to get prepared

    Lives are impacted when these natural disasters hit our regions, and, we often fail to realize, that we are not just in need of the materials (the blankets, the shelter, the food, the water, etc., etc.) but also the emotional and social support from others around us…
