Amanda – great story and glad that you were able to wake up from it, unlike many who just go back to sleep. My wife used to be much the same about our preps, but I’ve used subtle triggers over time where she now sees the benefits of it and is even starting to think about putting things aside that she thinks we may need. In So-Cal, we’ve had numerous blackouts and brownouts of varying time frames and also the wildfires (one where we had to evac) and those in addition to the stuff on TV where I’ll say “Boy, I’ll bet those hurricane Sandy people wished they had some propane and a stove set aside” or whatever and she finally got it. Good luck, it can be a tough nut so hang in there!

Look forward to your comments – lots of lessons to be learned here so don’t be afraid to ask anything.

Take Care, K

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.
