gas-shortages

The Colonial Pipeline runs from Texas to New York and supplies gasoline to an estimated 50 million people a day on the East Coast. On September 9, a 36-inch pipeline was shut down near Birmingham, Alabama where a major ‘leak’ was discovered.

The shutdown of Colonial Pipeline service to ‘Line 1’ which normally transports 1.3 million barrels of gasoline per day from refiners on the Gulf Coast to delivery locations in the Southeast and along the Eastern seaboard, may (likely) result in gasoline shortages.

The pipeline has been estimated to supply up to 40 percent of the gasoline on the east coast…

Here’s something to think about… For those of you who are stocking up with extra food, or for those who have already stocked up with extra food in preparation for a time of hard societal collapse with distribution failures and severe shortages…

Have you planned for ‘extra’ food storage beyond that which you need for yourself in order to feed others than just your immediate household?

The Best Work Gloves For Preparedness

September 15, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

The best work gloves for preparedness will be those designed for general everyday wear, and will be made from quality heavy-duty materials that hold up to the test of time.

Long, long ago I learned the difference between the so called ‘cheap’ work gloves and those that you pay more for. The cheap gloves will tear up quickly while the best work gloves will provide much better protection for a much longer time.

I’ll bet that most all of you have at least one pair of ordinary work gloves. However for those of you who are into preparedness, just imagine how much more hard laborious work you will be doing if and when your preparedness plans go into action. You will need at least several pairs of good heavy duty work gloves. And if a true SHTF collapse comes your way, you may need even more than that – depending on the longevity of the collapse.

It provides a water supply to simply set on the table with a convenient spigot.

Here’s what I settled on…
