Batten down the hatches!



This is proving to be a very active start to the winter - a huge storm heading for the East Coast, a quake off British Columbia, and that's just this weekend. I hope everyone is safe and have been able to find basic provisions. We're reading that water cannot be found in some areas, and store shelves are empty in some places as well.

We finished our bug-out bags for our daughters this weekend, and the man at REI stated that half of his customers for backpacks are for bug-out bags (backpacks packed to survive for 72-hours.) As mentioned in Synchosecrets - the collective consciousness is preparing for something. We all have different issues where we live - for us it is earthquakes and wildfires. For our daughters it is flooding, ice storms, and active volcanoes.

We are all vulnerable to mother nature in one way or the other, so batten down the hatches and stay safe wherever you are!

I am in the Pacific Northwest and didn't feel the earthquake, but I'm nervous for the whole East Coast. Yes, I feel it too.

Sandy now sets a record for the lowest barometric pressure in the north atlantic - and the pressure is still dropping. 940 and counting.

Brian - Stay safe! Will be thinking about you.

DJan - I was in Portland all weekend and it just poured most of the time - got home to Tahoe and it's almost 70!

T&R- Wow. It reminds me of the book The Perfect Storm.

It was very windy and rainy here (southern Ontario) last night but all is reasonably calmer this morning. I hope everyone fared well.

Grandmother said...

I got caught in the storm- stranded in Ohio as flights to Boston and Rome on Monday were cancelled. Hopefully out tomorrow. We've always had these emergency supplies- at home!

Nancy said...

Hilary - I hope the storm passed without too much hardship where you live.

Grandmother - Isn't that the way? You prepare, and then find yourself somewhere else! Hope you make it home safe and sound.

Just watching all the news about the devastation of the storm. How will that area ever recover? Where do they begin? I feel so sorry for everyone.
