Tues. May 14, 2019 – grid still up, use the time wisely

66F and saturated. FEMA national forecast has us on the edge of a big system, openweathermap has today dry. I guess we’ll see.

I was very glad to hear that Ray is recovering. If you have an issue, get it looked at. Take care of it while you can. Even if the world continues to be unchanged, I can’t think of any health issue that gets better the longer you ignore it!

I don’t think the world will be unchanged. Whether we limp along, or crash, or enter into a violent conflict of enough scope to positively impact our economy, the world is going to look very different in 10 years than it does today. I don’t think anyone here will think it’s an improvement.

Hard times are coming. Look at Cuba. They thought things were looking up. Obama lifted the travel ban, Venezuela was giving them money, Castro was gone… today they are rationing staples again (and using their EXISTING ration books, wonder why we haven’t heard about those before?) What else are we not hearing about?

Plenty of reasons why things could get worse. It’s the natural way of the universe to increase disorder, and much easier to destroy than build.

In the mean time, do what you can to decrease your local entropy. Put energy into creating structure and order. Make your life better, your community better, and your tribe better.
