    Just a recent example IMHO, ‘preppers’ prepare for everything- but so many neglect to think and prepare for the force of power greater than any man/human, country etc. Keep abreast of what is going on in the natural world and try and notice trends and act/plan accordingly. We, to Mother Nature, are but specks on earth. My cheap 2 cents. (This is just one one so many, many things going on now)

    I agree tweva. I work outside a lot and have for a long time. I do not take heavy jackets out of my truck until May or June and I always have a light jacket somewhere. I can’t tell you how many times I have been working 300 feet in the air in June when it goes from 90 degrees to 50 or 60 degrees. Those are not extreme temperatures but get wet from a rain shower and let that temp drop and it is a big shock to your system. We have a saying here in Texas” If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes it will change.”

    Thanks so much Matt! But, I myself, (and I admit I know nothing) feel/see Mother Nature ‘on the move’/patterns forming that no one seems to be (ok not many) taking notice of. I guess, i.e. ‘Mother Nature’ ain’t happy with we humans, ‘She’ stands near or close to the hand of ‘God’/whomever runs the world IMHO. Plan and project scenarios all one wishes, better, (to me) to watch MN! I look at the aggregate and I am wondering what are all my preps for in view of her power? Plot the earthquakes, volcanoes erupting/coming to life and other calamities like drought and etc – I see MN speaking (don’t claim to know what she means specifically). I DON’T mean ‘global warming’…I mean MN natural cycles and ways she must use (IMHO) to communicate to us ‘specks’. OK I may be weird in my thinking I admit. But I am seeing patterns and it is worrisome.

    I also believe in mother nature and what it can do. Remember I went though Hurricane Andrew so yes it can very strong. God has a plan that we do not know. I pray everyday for all of us(tweva you too) that he protect us and help us though all the bad that is coming are way. When have you ever heard of the land moving in Key West were my sister lives? Well there was an earthquake off of Cuba and the Keys felt it.

    I am think of Yellowstone park, when and if that will happen, since Yellowstone can put the hole Earth in the dark for years.

    So yes I do think about Mother Nature a lot.

    You are right. God created a balance. He even created filters to clean up our messes but I belive the filters are getting clogged. It’s kinda like a washing machine. It was designed for unbalanced loads but when it gets to far out of wack it really starts making some noise. I also believe it is a sign of the times. The Bible talks about storms, earthquakes and floods. I believe she is just beginning to clear her throat. I believe she will fight right alongside her creator when He returns.

    No tweva your not crazy hun, even all the way up here I watch our weather changing.This past winter was one of the worse for us in years. Yet I should have known that it was coming. Last summer was our hotest on record since the 80s. the summer before we had icebergs in the bay in july.

    Tweva – thanks for the article.  MN sets records somewhere just about every year – hot or cold so this doesn’t keep me up at night, BUT it definitely should not be discounted as you have pointed out.  I think that you are right on paying close attention.  If you can pattern this you’ll be better than 95% of the weather people on TV!

    Gypsy – man that’s cold, and in May!  I had a friend of mine tell me about similar cold in Wisconsin also.  I asked if he was retiring (from military) and going back and he said “NO WAY!”  We’re a bit (okay a lot) spoiled here in SoCal where it rarely freezes and rarely gets triple digits F.  That good weather costs alot though!  Housing, utilities, land, gas, taxes – you pay for it just like a vacation to Hawaii!

    Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.

    Nature has the habit reminding us who is running the show every now and then. Three days earlier Japan and Thailand also had 6.X earthquakes.

    Gypsy is there an upside to the cold weather? Maybe it killed most of the mosquitos this year? -1 C in May is crazy.

    Nature have its own ways to remind us that we are small and not prepared.

    Year or two ago little bit stronger winter storm paralyzed whole region, and show us that many things are actual not important when you are freezing in bus, stuck in the middle of nowhere, or shivering at your home simply because you forgot that electric energy i not so sure thing.

    Nature can be good reminder that it make sense to be prepper.
