Really Irene...

So in the land of nod there was a hurricane scaring everyone out of their panties.
Which got me thinking...

The thing that makes me chuckle most, are people rushing to the store to stock up on things that they should already have. 

I read a news piece the other day about our governor calling for people to be more prepared because, well, Alaska is known for it's hard winters and earthquakes. As I was reading the comments there was a fair amount of ridicule towards this leader. They compared him to other "failed" leadership. Now I read that and thought...yah, you are right Mr. Governor. I need to be getting my house in order. I need to be getting my food storage built up. I need to be building a nest egg while getting out of debt.  

So where do you fall? Are you the people on the land telling Noah he's a fool for preparing for the flood? Now I'm certainly not saying my governor is a prophet, but inspired, definitely. I'm not however falling into the 'end of the world in 2012' club. I don't think it will be that soon. But do I think it's going to get worse? Absolutely. Which makes preparation such a key element. Which also reminds me that we need a gun. Or two. I also need to learn how to use one. Believe me, when it does get worse you can bet your kiester that I won't be sharing and I won't let it be stolen. Ok, I might share. Maybe. You could knock three times and ask. No promises though!

So will you be prepared when the world goes to pot?
Pin It!

We are prepared. I'm with you that I don't think it will be 2012 and that I do think things are getting progressively worse. We will be ready for whatever comes our way. Tornadoes are big here, so you don't get a lot of prep time for that.

SHELF RELIANCE here we come... sorry I couldn't help myself...but if any one is interested I can tell you all about it. I total believe we should be prepared for any thing,lost of jobs (a big thing these days) sickness,storms, and the list goes on. I think people find it hard to believe sometimes that it could be happen to them, but we never know.Thanks for the reminder Meg...

I would learn to use a gun before you buy one. We don't want anyone shot in the foot. ;)

Thought provoking. Is it possible to be totally prepared? Just do the best you can to be ready for whatever befalls.

yeah - I don't like to go to the store when everyone is there buying milk and bread like no other. I am prepared - not as prepared as I would like to be...such as - I think I should have some charcoal for the grill and more food that DOESN'T require cooking (still out of power over here - in case you are wondering how I am writing this...I'm at work - work never loses power).

I agree with the gun - I should get one too. My brother-in-law says you need one - especially to fight off all the spoiled, rich teenagers - cause if anyone is going to go crazy without modern conveniences it's them.
