Cooler, but damp and warming up later. Probably get all the way to hot. It certainly followed that path yesterday, but ended in “cool” when the front rolled in around 6pm. Gusts and 10 degree temperature drops say “excitement is on the way”. So we retreated to the cars. Well excitement never arrived at the swim meet, but the cooler temps were appreciated.
I did my pickups yesterday. Got D1 from the airport. She’d been with grandma for the last week. Got a couple more pickups done on the way home, and then got D2 to swim. Not a lot of time in there for messing around with restacking food on the shelves.
Maybe I get it done today. If not, most of it is under cover or in covered bins and can sit for another few days. I say ‘maybe’ because I’ve got two pickups in the morning (stuff for the BOL), lunch with my sibling who is in town, then possibly a quick trip to my client’s to tweak some things before the weekend… It’ll make him happy and his wife too, so IF I can make the timing work it is worth doing.
Then load the truck for the next trip up to the BOL and head out. No non-prepping hobby meeting on Saturday because of a scheduling conflict with the venue.
Full day. Full night. Full life.
Over at BayouRenaissanceMan, the inevitable commentor when Peter brings up food shortages.. “But I don’t have money or room for those things.” Might be true for a very limited subset of people, mainly those in care or institutions, but it’s REALLY unlikely. As shown here by RBT and me both, and in innumerable other prepping sites online, you can MAKE room and it doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s easier to find reasons not to prep than it is to prep, but the reasons don’t sound very convincing to anyone who has begun the journey.
The best time to plant a tree might be 5 years ago, and the same might be true for prepping, but there won’t be any stored food in 5 years, or any new trees if you don’t start NOW. Stop looking for reasons not to, and look for was TO prep. There are lots of resources out there, and a whole bunch here, just use the keywords on the right.
Get started stacking up food and other preps. If you already have some nice stacks, congrats! Now do more! Take control of your life and your future. Take this step to ensure both.
