Complete Disaster Non-Preparedness: DC Grocery Stores Out of Food, Gas Unavailable, Grid-Down As Summer Heat Rages
This is just what i am concerned about the acts of god that cant be predicted, why are those of us who want to have some level of preparedness mocked
and made to look crazy. I can only think that our east coast prepper friends are sitting well and confident that just some basic preperations have
made there situation much more tolerable. Some food stached, some full water jugs, basic first aid kits, staying in the basement or cold room door
opened for some cooler air, very basic things should make their lives better for the time being, oh yeah sure sounds like a nutjob to me, geez.
Just a quote from the story i found very interesting, and very very reinforcing to my thoughts for why i prep.
"Is this the work of a terrible terrorist attack? No, it is the complete disaster non-preparedness a decade after 9/11. Despite the fact that
billions if not trillions have been spent since 9/11 on counter-terrorism and so-called “homeland security” measures, one of the major terrorist
targets, the nation’s capital, cannot cope with a severe thunderstorm.
I received a message from PEPCO that most D.C.-area residents may not have power until next Friday at 11:00 pm – a full week after the storm hit.
With temperatures this week set for the mid to upper-90s, that is a long time for residents to be with air conditioning, or fans, or refrigerators.
