Cool and damp, maybe even wet. Had some heavy condensation last night, with the ground wet but no visible rain. It did rain yesterday, and in typical Houston fashion, what you got and when depended on where you were. I was everywhere from the west side up to Conroe, and down to Friendswood, then back, and never got more than occasional light drizzle. There was plenty of evidence of places that got dumped on, and places that didn’t see a drop. I’m hoping for dry today… I sure hope I can get some stuff done this week, and not get rained on. It was 73F when I went to bed, and the air conditioner was running. Fall in Houston.
Kids are back in school, and all the contaminated water in the pipes somehow got transmuted to clean drinkable water overnight. Assuming there was any contamination in the first place. Nothing changed for me.
Did my pickups. Hit the reStore and the old Sears scratch and dent outlet too. Ended up with some spray paint (industrial grey, Cat yellow, John Deere green, OSHA blue) for my workshop, and a new dishwasher for the BOL. Happy wife, etc. She moved it up my list and I obliged.
Today I’ve got to get the kids out the door for school, the water having been certified non-deadly. Then my usual round of errands and tasks.
I’ve neglected some preps and I am feeling behind on some stuff. Water purification at the BOL. Storage of drinking water at the BOL. Rotating hurricane supplies here. Small engine repair day, and gas storage rotation… it’s not all about freezers and food, but that is what I’ve been focused on. DEFINITELY need to get the defensive tool situation at the BOL sorted out, and stocked. And the long term medical supplies, etc.
Christmas is coming too, and the prepper in me says, shop early and get it done. I usually have at least a couple things put by for most of the people in my life by now, but I’ve been focused on other things, namely the BOL, and not on gifts. I’ll need to look for stuff for that this week and next too. Oh, Christmas decor needs to get set up here too. Time is flying by.
So, what does YOUR end of year look like? Mad dash, or slow fade? And how’s your stacking going?
I hope you are stacking all the things!
