October 30

This storm, Sandy, has been ferocious!  The perfect storm, and calling it a ‘Frankenstorm’ because it’s so close to Halloween.  Wow.  This just off the Glen Beck site: “Not even a back injury could keep Glenn from coming on radio and telling the New York branch that if the storm didn’t get them, the inevitable breakdown in the food supply and the subsequent rioting would surely result in their untimely demise.”  This is even scarier than the storm. A breakdown in the food supply is almost a sure thing, considering the GIT system in most major cities, and those cities… yeah, there WILL be rioting… makes me shiver!!  What bothers me the most about this is people COULD have prepared!  They could have stocked up on food, water, supplies.  They could have done a lot of things but they just don’t, counting on the government to take care of them and then blaming others when this fails.  I do hope that those affected by the storm WAKE UP and realize that their safety, their future, their very lives are in their own hands, not the governments!

Here, we’re under a high wind advisory and Lake Superior is under gale warnings.  It’s cold, windy and snow is in the air, likely tonight.  Sure glad I don’t have to go anywhere, but I did bring in extra wood.

Furnace kicked on as scheduled this morning, so yesterday was just a fluke.

Elections are just a week away.  I want all my winter preps done before then, I’m actually behind, but if I push it tomorrow, I might finish by my November 1 goal.  I’ve used that date as my personal marker for, what, 17 years now?  Wow, I’ve been up here that long already.

Read a report today that said one-third of all Americans are not paying their bills on time now, the economy is that bad, and that more than 41 percent of all working age Americans are not working… that’s the true unemployment rate!  I’m ever thankful I bought this house outright when I could.  No car payment, no mortgage, just utilities, insurance, taxes… I’m in much better shape than most, even with just a seasonal job.  A big garden and canning really helps keep food on the table.

Dawn mentioned Halloween cocktails tomorrow night.  Any excuse for a party!

Ok, ok… I braved the well pit and shut off the water. Yuck.  That prep list is almost done!
