Given that we're survivalists from waaaay back, live on a dinky solid-rock island, I suspect we'll be doing much as we are today....
Looking at the skies, watering the garden, perhaps sun-drying some tomatoes, rescuing birds from our cats.
I don't know if anything is going to happen, but what I DO know is that I've yet to go wrong preparing for what CAN happen. When hurricane Paloma
slammed this place in NOvember of '08, we were able to share with others, assist, help people dry in the remains of their houses, because, as mah
dear ol' daddy says, "you can't share it if you don't have it."
I come from a long line of hoarders. Right now, we don't pay for heating our water -- both in the hot tub and water heater. We run our 'fridge
off-grid from a solar array. I expect this time next year, we'll be mostly if not completely solar.
We're makin' our stand here. If the dreaded 210-ft tsunami hits here in 2012, well, then, good knowing you all. Best of luck to you, because
we're toast. Happy toast, but still toast.
Edit to add: y'know....... we try to live our lives with the thought that life is a tenuous thing at best.... We don't go to bed mad, we laugh,
and most of all live simply and fully. Today (a holiday here) was spent having a liesurly picnic by the beach in the shade..... we drove our
tandem trike about four miles, chilled, and then came home. Excellent day. Perhaps the best Monday this month.
