Warmer, damp. Overcast. But hopefully no rain.
Saturday was overcast and muggy all day. I was out running around, and my wife was taking down the pool. . . she was running fans to try to dry it out but it wasn’t working. It was MUGGY. 91%RH at 10am. The RH did go down as the temperature went into the 80s. I got a few light sprinkles in various parts of town. Barely enough to use the wipers though.
I spent some time throwing stuff out at my secondary. I’m making room for other stuff. And I’m discovering that I saved a lot of empty boxes, just because I could. I was using them back in the day, but haven’t in a long time. B’bye…. can’t afford that now.
Gotta make more room for TP and paper towel stacks.
Today the plan is to head over there and put the forklift to work, attacking from the other end. If it doesn’t rain that is.
I was reminded of Selco, and SHTFSchool.com by Peter Grant’s post at his site. Selco is one of the legends of the preppersphere. He’s also very no nonsense and willing to tell uncomfortable truths to people. Read what he’s written on the blog, buy the books. Peter’s post reminded me of how quickly things can deteriorate. One thing I really don’t want to see in the US is fighting in the streets. We have been seeing RIOTING in the streets. Last night at the Million MAGA March in DC it came much closer to FIGHTING.
Real fighting- snipers, roadblocks, burning cars, raping and murder, arson (some parts of Chicago on any given weekend)- hasn’t started yet. While the left has been running riot, the right has been standing around. While the left has been working out tactics and support, the right has been mostly posturing. While the left has been getting their financing in order, the right has been frozen out of crowdfunding, and doesn’t have a deep pockets patron. I have a feeling the right is going to learn some very hard lessons when the fighting actually kicks off.
I read somewhere that no insurgency has ever survived long without outside support. The lefty insurgency has that in spades. If the right is forced into becoming an insurgency, who do they have? And what will it cost to get help?
What would victory look like? What would defeat look like? Neither looks as good as a week long vacation at Disneyland, but at the moment, one or the other looks more likely.
