Prepping for me isn’t only about being able to provide basic needs to my family in a time of crisis, but also to leave behind a legacy. I know I will not always be around to look after my family. I have three girls and nearly everything I purchase, I purchase three at a time. I also have a number of survival books. I always wanted to start a “hope chest” for them. So now I have. Not only do I prep for whatever may happen in the not-so-distant future, I prep for my family for what may happen when I am no longer around.
A few weeks ago, a major ice storm was predicted to hit the Midwest, and of course, people were rushing to the stores to buy basics, including water. Lines were extremely long, and many items were gone. We didn’t have to panic because we had everything we needed, including water, a generator, and fuel. Fortunately, we were fine. My advice is to prep now, and then you won’t have to panic later.
We live SD and a couple of weeks ago we lost power for 2 hours. Not a big deal right, except is was -4 outside and clear. Now it can get real cold real fast. We were ready. We started our generator and keep warm. We also had food to eat. My point is you never know when something will happen. Weather is not always a predictor if the power will go out. It dose not matter who is in office. Civil unrest can happen any time. As well as a disaster or sickness. One way to look at it, is 4 years to be even more prepared. So keep on prepping.
Just because Trump got elected doesn’t mean that our country is not still trillions of dollars in debt. We could see a super volcano go off, the San Andreas of Madrid Fault blow leaving thousands without power or food. We could suffer an EMP or attack on our power grid at any time. Don’t stop prepping!!!
