What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2015-08-22)

(Hopefully you did more than this lazy dachshund)

This week was a reminder that all things are not right in the global economy. In fact, many believe (know) that things are very wrong in this illusion of a so called recovery — and that the Thursday/Friday stock market losses are just the tip of the iceberg. We might be facing another ‘Black Monday’, perhaps unless the FED pulls another rabbit out of its hat this weekend (perhaps announcement of QE4 coupled with permanent zero interest rates?).

Whether or not this turns out to be ‘just’ a ‘correction’ rather than a crash (we’ll see next week), it’s a wake-up call that time may be running short on general preparedness.

With that said, what did you do for preparedness this week? Or what are you now planning?

 
This week I exchanged some of my green paper ‘money’ for hard tangible assets over at Home Depot and Lowes while acquiring materials needed for my underground conduit and wiring for my solar panel locations. I started digging the trenches and hope to borrow the neighbors excavator today to pull out a few tree stumps/roots that are in the way.

We also finally dispatched a pesky mouse in the house – who apparently really liked ‘minute rice’ (who knew?) while a bit of peanut butter irresistibly did the trick…
