What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2015-07-18)

The most read new article from this week is “Gangs WILL Rule The Cities”, which indicates a particular interest or concern by you, the reader. Most of us instinctively know that when the balloon finally pops, the heavily populated regions will rapidly devolve into social chaos and the cities will become very dangerous places indeed. The thing is, how does one rationalize moving out of these population-dense areas while their minds are blocked by normalcy bias?

I also just posted this interesting alert which reveals that FEMA is apparently expecting a major disaster within six months… (more reason to be prepared – for anything)

Okay, with that said, lets talk about what we all did this week for preparedness:

Additionally, this weekly article is ‘open forum’, so feel free to discuss anything.

I finally made a major purchase and bought my own tractor – now that I have 30 acres to tend to… It’s a used Ford model 1920 (35HP) in great shape – with a bush hog attachment. This is going to be a great tool going forward for all sorts of things. Yesterday I thrashed about 2 acres of field – with a lot more to go 😉

I began setting concrete post ‘pads’ for my solar panel ground mount project – after finally settling on a particular frame construct, each of which will hold 3 panels.

Mrs.J did some inventory updating of our canned food storage (keeping a spread-sheet along with a printed copy).

Note to self: Order more 50 pound bags of wheat berries (just went through another one).

Okay, the floor is yours:
