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?
