Tues. July 9, 2019 – still hot, still busy

78F and 96%RH at almost 7am. Yesterday stayed hot all day and was wet blanket hot when I went to bed. Today should be more of the same.

I’m dealing with heat better than last year, in the sense that I am not getting overheated as quickly and the symptoms aren’t as severe. But I’m still not recovered completely from my prior heat injury. Our most likely disaster here is hurricane, and they happen in the summer, so prepping for the heat has as much concern for me as prepping for cold during a winter storm does for people in the north. I haven’t been doing as good a job as I should of USING my preps (fans, portacool, portable airconditioner) as I should. They’re preps, and should be “saved” for when they’re needed. Right? Wrong!

Dinner last night was Butter Chicken and rice from storage. Canned chicken, and one pan rice and sauce mix. Tasted great to me. Best by of 2016. Every bit was gone at the end of dinner.

Daughter wanted to try ramen noodles after seeing them in the store. I ate so many cheap ones in college that I can’t stand the smell of them, so I was reluctant. Well, she loves them. I guess I’ll stock some of the college student/asian/poor people’s staple. I know other preppers do, but I never saw the point. Their nutritional value is so low, and they are bulky. I shouldn’t be surprised, the kid likes pasta in all forms, and salty broth? Yum. . . . . I guess…. Point is, try new things, and maybe something is a classic for a reason.

Well I better get started on my day, I’ve got plenty to do, no matter what the heat is like.
