Fri. July 13, 2018 – Friday the 13th falls on a Friday this week!

76F at 730. Hot? Why yes, I think so.

Caught a little bit of forecasted rain last night. Barely got the ground wet. Did cool things off a tiny bit. Sunny and clear as I run to put the trash out. They are NEVER this early!

Lots to do as the week draws to a close.

Didn’t do much prepping this week. Feel a sense of unease from that.

Lost some more food because of the rats. I’ve got it stored in the black and yellow tubs, and bugs got into one tub. Just lost a case of mac and cheese and some other pasta, but I hate losing food. I’ve got to get it back on the shelves.

Listening to the scanner is getting me a better picture of what the cops’ capabilities are for surveillance, and what sort of serious crime is very nearby. I’m actually quite surprised by what I’m able to hear. As a law and order citizen, I’m shocked and appalled how much info they’re leaking. As a potential survivor of TEOTWAWKI, I’m glad to be learning about their very Matt Bracken-esk abilities.

There were a couple of small things I picked up, but can’t remember what they were. My “Big Bubba” gallon jug has been getting a work out. I bought it to use for hot pot slow cooking on RBT’s mention of the technique, but I’ve been using it traditionally for cold drinks.

So, anyone building in meatspace? anyone stacking preps?

Hurricane season is here. The terrorist murderers are still out there. Mother Gaia still wants to shake the ticks off her back…..
