Do you have a Plan A (or B, or C, nervous ha, ha)?
I don’t have a 'daily' plan of any kind other than making sure my animals are covered when the ash starts falling - which it does often and to my
But a plan for the ‘big one’? Hmmmm...
I’m on an island. If Etna really BLEW - I hope I’d be ‘taken out’ by her pyroclastic flow. Less appealing and less instantaneous and
absolutely more hideously I’d suffocate on the ash or drown in the resulting tsunami. Ewww.
But - I’m not fatalistic. Death by Etna would be the way I’d chose to ‘go’ (I hope without too much sniveling) and in all honesty? How far
could I run and how fast? The answer? Not far or fast enough - and no I don’t drive, lol!
Having said that? Recently I've been contemplating draining my cistern dry of water in order to use it as a 'bunker‘ for me and my animals if I
thought (or saw) impending imminent destruction and doom headed our way. I’d stock up the 10 X 8 space with food, water, etc. I could even run
power and an internet line ‘down there’ (Must stay in touch with ATS as long as possible)!
Sooo, you might wonder why I’ve been contemplating this just recently? I mean it’s not like other ATS’ers have asked me over the years ‘what
I’d do’ ’just in case’.
But now? I’ve found love. True love!
I’ve a new Dachshund puppy and she’s become the very light of my life. How could I look into her huge lipid seal eyes and say - ‘Naw, we’re
not even going to try’. (By the way her name‘s Medusa and it means ‘guardian’. Cool that, huh).
So yes, I might drain the cistern. Blame it on puppy love and puppy breath but I’m mulling over how to outsmart our Vulcanessa!
All kidding aside - I think (???) being underground would/could save us.
Problem is? For how long. THAT’S the drawback. But I am thinking about it.
So very nice to see you here! Thank you for joining us!
