Harry - i have always loved REM. and THAT particular song has always sounded sooo inspirational to me. i don't even know if most "survivalist" types even know where the term originated. oh well eh?your friend,kymber
It's an old one, but it resonates with me. I hope the Fox 5 Weather guy isn't right. Sounded a bit melodramatic, but I may be laughing out of the other side of my mouth by tomorrow morning. I've done everything I can do to get ready. From here on in, I'm just along for the ride.
Harry - we are stocked up and as ready as we will ever be. in case of your needing any kind of assistance - you know how to contact us eh? we will be there in about 24 hours with a bunch of crazy cape bretoners...make sure you have a lot of alcohol eh?this news/weather thing is just another ploy to get us all worked up! don't even worry about it...unless you call us out and DON'T have a lot of alcohol on hand - bahahahahah!much love buddy! we are always here and always willing! your friend,kymber
There's something rattling on the roof right now. I guess it's sleet, since freezing rain only freezes once it hits. I thought this stuff wasn't going to start till after midnight.Are you getting bad weather up there. I've been so fixated on this storm here I forgot others have weather issues as well.I have a lot of booze in the store room. It's for trading after the day, but I would break it out for visitors. Some of it is the good stuff and some of it is rot gut. It's all from the state liquor store up across the North Carolina line. ;-)
I keep thinking about New Orleans, and how people had plenty of warning about Katrina but didn't do anything to help themselves. Wonder how many people will suffer for their lack of planning. Stay Safe, warm, and those ice cleats on your feet!
I can guarantee you a lot of people in the city have done nothing. I watched an Atlanta station on the satellite tv a while back. The city is opening up all kinds of heating centers and feeding stations. The state prison kitchens are cooking the meals. I wonder how they will transport the food? We learned in the mountains east of Beirut when we tried to rescue people trapped by a storm that even tracked vehicles aren't worth a damn in heavy icing.Lots of people won't have any money to go buy extra food, blankets, flashlights, water, all that. They'll just wait for the city or the state to do something. It's their mind set. They've been dependent all their lives and by now they can't think in terms of taking care of themselves.I should be ok. The minute we start getting ice the phones, internet and power will all go. So I'll disappear for who knows how long but it only means I'm sitting up here waiting it out.
I'm wanting more snow. Send some my way. It is good to be prepared in the cold season.
We're getting sleet, snow and ice all mixed together now. It's really rattling down outside. Yes, it's good to be on top of things, I just hope I don't get stuck up here for a long time. This ice isn't looking good.
Good luck, Bubba. Sincerely, take care.
We are all forted up here. Should be fine unless a tree falls on the house.
stay warm and safe.
It would be nice if the power stayed on. Then I wouldn't have to go out there in the pitch black with a flashlight and fiddle with the generator and the kerosene heaters. But I've done as much as I could do before hand and if I have to, so be it.
Harry,(captaincrunch)Its real cold and windy here in South Texas, nothing, I mean nothing like what you guys are going to get smacked with.This is also the reason why I buy extra stuff at walmart, sometimes two of the same thing (or more) I stay stocked on gas, food, etc.I got the generator, etc, etc, etc.I even got a bottle of Jack Daniels and a game of Twister in case some college girls need shelter during spring break.I hope you will be okay Harry....hang in there bud'
Harry,(captaincrunch)Did you check out Kymbers latest blog on them funny fu man chu lobsters. I don't know how to eat a lobster. I'm sure I can kill a lobster like kill a feral hog with an AR-15, it would take what, two shots, or one shot behind the ear? (do lobsters have ears)Then throw the lobster on the barbecue, smear it down with barbecue sauce and then slow cook the lobster it with the brisket for hours and it should be ok to eat at that point.I like my steak and other meat well done, and I mean, Napalmed 'crispy critter' well done. I like that carbon after taste with the barbecue tang. I imagine that's what my fu man chu lobster would taste like. How do you eat them things anyway???By the way, do them lobsters have fu man chu moustaces too????My idea of fine cusine is Navy Meatloat. I really miss Navy Meatloaf. I have yet to find a suitable substitute.
We should all be fine up here. Even if we lose power it's just a pain in the rear, not a major catastrophe. Those folks who don't have any heat but electric are going to be in sad shape though. It's really coming down outside right now, and Atlanta is probably getting pummeled.
