Why we Prep and News reports..

After watch the CNN news this morning and listening to a women screem about how she was going to DIE/were is the President?I want help!!

 

and the coming RAT problem...........................

I thought that this is the time for everyone to look at the AFTERMATH of what IS happening and why People need to prep.

And to give everyone a chance to POST there Favorite Finding of people "NOT PREPARED"..

Love the clips, although it makes me sad for and annoyed by the people in Staten Island. Sad for them because it has to be frustrating, overwhelming, and terrifying to have a huge tidal wave hit your community and then get no rescue response; annoyed by them because their position really has remained, "What are you going to do for us?" instead of "What can we take charge of on our own?"

 

Thought this was an interesting article by someone who isn't a prepper (and actually is just an IT guy working for an IT-focused news service), but thinks that "be prepared" should become the lesson from Sandy:

This gives an interesting "status report" that focuses mostly on NYC and the surrounding areas, but also provides 20 pictures of how people are coping (or not) with the situation:

The rat thing freaks me out. <shudder> Like it won't be bad enough trying to clean up your flooded-out house, but opening the door to find that a new rat colony has made your living room (or inside your walls) into its new HQ would be awful.

I had to interject some humor and that was just the perfect oppurtunity Capt...lol.

 

My wife isn't exactly onboard with prepping and I get my point across by telling her if the food isn't here, her cats will be on the menu. I even wrote a recipe (doubt it would work because I just wrote it off the cuff) and handed it to her. She doesn't bother the food storage I have...lol.

Well, I guess this is another teachable moment for our family members not on board.

 

"WOW, that is terrible. You know, if they had stored food properly and had some kind of backup plan, maybe things would not be so bad." Anyway, this serves as yet another lesson for non-preppers. Sort of like trying to explain to gun control advocates that when seconds count, the police are minutes (or hours) away.

 

As to the rats, I guess this is a perfect reason to get a cat, even though I am not a huge fan.

Well said Texas Bill.

 

Sandy has served as an excellent reminder for many of my friends of just how serious things can get in a natural disaster. Thoughts and prayers go out to all those effected, but like Regulator5 said- most would rather wait for another to help them than be be proactive.

It doesn't matter...two months down the road my guess is that over 70% of them will be back to their normal day to day with no further thought about preps.

 

I think you are giving them credit for even thinking 30% will think about preps....lol.

Reg,

I learned in RVN that ANYTHING is editable with enough Tabasco!

 

Funny; I like it!:)

 

Rat is also not bad fried taste's like chicken soaked in beef grease the after though is disturbing in my defense I did not know ahead of time I ordered a plate of fried drumsticks from a street vendor who swore they were chicken i found out different when I threw the plate away and looked behind his table.

Reg, my wife was lukewarm about prepping when I started. She let me buy stuff without question because it kept me busy and out of her hair. But she started saying, “When do we start eating the food in the basement?” And I said, “When we need to.” Then last year we had the three major natural challenges – tornado, massive ice storm and flood. During those times we didn’t miss a beat while the neighbors were living with family and in hotels. We also supplied the neighborhood with tarps, ropes, freezer space, etc. After the flood she thanked me for preparing and has been onboard ever since. Anytime we go into any store, she buys something for prepping. It seems I have created a monster!

Pig, It has a different flavor, but I honestly didn't think it was too bad. I'd eat it again and I didn't brine mine, just gutted and skinned, stuck thru with a green branch and cooked. I would have liked to bar-b-que it tho...lol.

 

Coastie, I truly think it would take a hail stone hitting her in the head to knock the thought into it...lol. She says her idea of "prepping" is keeping me around.

"I never soaked mine in salt water. Why do that Pig? "

 

 

My Dad soaked them in salt and celery,same as Coon.It took the gamey taste out..

Frankstorm + EarthQuake + Nor'Easter

Back in my Navy days, ported in Virginia, i remember a Nor'easter coming through, alot of people were on leave/vacation, but we had to get the ship out of the bay before the storm hit. Or risk 41,000 tons of Steel slamming into the pier with every wave.

The best way that I've found to explain prepping to someone that is skeptical is like this...Ask them if they have life insurance, health insurance and/or insurance on their home or car. Do they expect to die, get sick or have a wreck some time soon? Why don't they wait until they are pretty sure that one of these things is about to happen to worry about it? If you're healthy, drive safely and the weather is clear what do you even NEED insurance for??

 

EXACTLY...I don't expect anything to happen like tomorrow or the next day BUT I feel that I owe it to those that I love to have that base covered just as I have life insurance, health Insurance, Auto and home insurance. It isn't that I am afraid or have some sort of Doomsday paranoia, I just feel that it is important AND my responsibility to protect those that I love from things that I can't prevent or predict when it might happen...
