Are You Prepared Yet?
Ask Yourself: Are You Prepared Yet?
Even a Tiny Bit? Or A Lot?
It's Sunday afternoon and I was supposed to be taking the day
off. But I know that rain is headed our way, so I decided to fix
the threshold on the entry door, near to where I'm sitting typing this. We are in the middle of the dry winter, moving into the spring
season, here in Florida, and a major rain fall right now, would be very

I was prepared, but just hadn't taken the step to actually 'do it'. (I'm the handy person in our family – so the job naturally fell to me!)
Here's the rub:
You Actually Have to 'Do It'
Have you taken actual steps to take care of your family if and

- an alternative to the US dollar: gold, silver, commodities.
- food: buy fresh foods now while you can and dehydrate it.
- food again: buy canned meats, and non-perishables. Now.
- and food again: grow your own – get the Survival Seed Bank, my seeds are on their way as I type this.
- an alternative to electricity for cooking: get the Crisis Cooker that uses scrap wood, propane gas, or charcoal briquettes as alternative fuel sources.
- get a solar generator: start producing your own albeit small amount of emergency power – mine's outside right now doing its thing.
Most people, when confronted with the above, either shrug
their shoulders as in defeat; or outright say "it'll never happen in the
Then there's me. Classed as the worrywart. But I'm ready.
help my friends and family – just in case the unthinkable does happen.
And so you can ask me: "Are You Prepared Yet?" and I'll answer: "Yes".
You can be the anchor in your family. Just do it.
