    We drove to fredmeyers and bought ice cream. (They where selling out???) We always have extra food, Plus i "can" so i like to keep a nice rotation. This is why i tell my friends and family to prep... They laugh and say for what... ZOMBIES and i just sit back and laugh because i really have no need to panic and leave the home. We need to prep for things like this winter storm.

    It Doesn?t Take Much For People To Start Behaving Like Crazed Lunatics

    I spent the afternoon cleaning up and organizing a remote storage unit. Note - it is a good idea to keep a look out for people who would rent extra space for cash. An older lady in LO is renting me her condo storage for $25 a month paid a year in advance. About 12'x20'. A lot cheaper than a professional storage facility, off the books.

    If you prep don't keep everything in one place. If you have things remotely stored and someone closer to the storage gains knowledge of that fact your efforts are futile. The closer person will steal your stuff in a SHTF scenario before you can get there. Happened to me twice now. Unfortunately, I am not invisible and all it takes is a 'hey, are you are Mormon' comment and you know it is time to plan to pack that site up.

    Picked up additional portable antenna's for the Ham radios, can't count on phone or cells plus they have a lot better range. Also adding to the solar charging system for them.

    Personally, I think situations like last weekend's snowfall are good opportunities to remind the unprepared for what they need to do if something more serious happens.

    As for me, I'm glad I have a 4x4 and the basic necessities, just in case I do have to stay at home for an extended period.

    I went to my place of work on Friday of last week to pick up a friend and give her a ride home, and made sure to bring my sleeping bag, cold weather gear, get-home bag, and of course, Mr. Glock. Turned out the prep stuff wasn't necessary, but it gave me peace of mind to have it.
