Fri. Mar. 12, 2021 – Just about one year since we shut down

Cool, humid, and possibly rainy.  Yesterday was overcast with scattered drizzle around town.  Nothing at the house though.

I spent the morning looking at trucks online.   One of the reasons I was so ready to jump on that first truck was to avoid the huge time sink of looking and looking and looking.   I did a bit of reading about extended warranties (they aren’t, they are service plans usually) and what they cost.    That first dealership wasn’t out of line with cost or coverage, although the company wasn’t in the top 5 of some random website review…    I’m going to back down the search a notch and do some of the things that are backing up.

Although, if history serves as a guide, I’ll spend today pretty much like I spent yesterday.

Today is pretty much the one year anniversary of the start of the wuflu, china virus, chinky flu, asian asthma, etc. in America.   Funny thing is, the CDC staffers predicted very early on that we’d still be dealing with it at this point, and “possibly for years”.   They actually made a couple of pretty good predictions based on historical data and little else.   Then the politics started and we learned just how vile our ‘public servants’ really are, and how little they think of us as individuals.   Of course, there are plenty of examples of WHY they should think little of individuals.   And there were and are a whole lot of people that have the right to remain silent, but not the ability.

At some point in the next couple of days I’ll take a look at what went well with my planning and prepping, what got missed, and what didn’t work as planned.  It is a dang strange zombie apocalypse when I can go to a thrift store, or order food delivered to my door, but hey, you play the cards you’re dealt.  And, I’ve yet to shoot anyone, but I get daily use of the TP stash…

That could always change.   Make sure you’re planning for the next one, as well as dealing with this one.  Stack stuff.  More stuff.
