Saturday afternoon. Rain all night, with a lot of wind. I went out on the porch and there are branches down that I'll have to police up. As soon as you get things squared away from one storm, another comes through before you can catch your breath.
Went outside to do all the morning chores, and it was like the breath of hell. Temperature is 84, and the humidity is hovering around 100%. The word "enervating" was invented to describe days like this.

British .303 surplus.
If you have Enfields, you may be interested in this new shipment Southern Ohio Guns got in. Let me just mention, least anyone misunderstand, that I don't do adds on my blog, nor have any financial links or arrangements with anyone or anything. So I'm not "selling" things, just letting people with similar interests know when something comes on the market that they might want.
Obviously, if you reload you would be better off , in terms of expense and possibly quality, to just reload your own. But if you don't, this price is better than most commercial ammo you can find today.
One Second After. One Year After. The Final Day.
I read One Second After when it first came out, and I enjoyed it. The fact that the story line plays out in an area about two hours from my house probably influenced me, but it was a good story overall. As I said when I included these books in a list of post apocalyptic fiction during an earlier post, I hadn't read the last two. CC said they were good, and we have the same taste in reading. I ordered them through the local library, and finished them this week.
I enjoyed them both, and I plan to buy hard copies as I do with all books that I want to keep in my personal library. Still, as is so often the case, they weren't as good as the first book. I think that's because in multi-volume series like these, the first book deals with the events that cause a disaster, and how people coped with it. The follow on volumes are generally political in nature, dealing with restoration of government and social order. I'm not so interested in the "restoration" issue as I am in coping with the extraordinary.
If I had to pick my favorite books in this genre, of all the books I've read, here are my favorites.
Some of these are out of print, but available as E books. Some are the first in a series of three or four books. Some of them are quite old, and some recent. They're all good reading.
