It was sleeting this morning before dawn. Once the sun came up, it changed over to rain. Never got above 40 here but at least it didn't snow. Cold tonight but it's snug enough in the house. I went into town and got a new fuel filter gasket installed on the filter post, seems to have stopped the leak but I'll have to drive the truck awhile before I know for sure. Next thing is a new brake booster cylinder. That'll cost about $300.00. Then there are some largely cosmetic things I want to get fixed on the truck . It gives me something to do.
I picked up the latest edition of American Survival Guide in town while I was there. I really haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but that's how I plan to spend part of the evening. The magazine has beeen doing extremely well since it came back into publication. I suppose that's a sign of the times.
Right now, there are more survival magazines than I've ever seen before. I either subscribe to them and get a paper copy in the mail, or get the digital edition but I am collecting them all. The digital ones I save on one of my Kindles. I'll be able to access them as long as I have power, since they are stored on internal memory. I get some flak from people about using anything digital, since it would seem to be susceptible to being lost in the event of a long term grid outage. However, if it's stored on the device, and not "in the cloud" and if you have the means to recharge the device ( and I do) I don't see an issue with it.
