What did you do to prep this week? A weekly post about the various things I do to help myself and my family/friends become better prepared.
It’s 9/11… I hope you took a moment to recognize a moment of silence for those lost and their victims. I know I did.
Irma… Is there more to say other than that? Everyone in the southeast I believe scrambled for water, gas, canned goods, and anything else they might be able to get ahold of. For us, it was different.
Although all planning and effort went to the possibility of major storm damage here in the area, we weren’t scrambling like most were. Food is taken care of for months… Water was a bit complicated after learning that the only generator we have turns out to be burnt up apparently. Turns out we did end up buying some but not until about 2 days ago. We made the decision to wait so that local supply could be replenished. Med supplies are good, fuel supplies were good. About the only thing we were short on honestly was power. I’ll fix that for the next time with an inverter in my truck. I’ll also be seeing about getting the generator rebuilt.
By the way… Jose is supposed to be heading straight in now. Outstanding…
Had the CB hooked up and testing.
Built a Zello network for local folks ot my region.
Developed a comms plan for those within range of the CB systems.
Finally, did some tree work at the BOL. One of the pines cut was solid fatwood so I’ll be harvesting that to use and sell locally.
So how about you?
