On the edge of a storm

Lately we’ve had a lot of thunderstorms predicted. There have been all these pop up storm cells. Sometimes we get them, sometimes we don’t. Even when we don’t get the storms we feel the tension in the air.

That’s how it feels in general to be a prepper right now. It feels like there are storms coming. The signs are there. The signs could be political, environmental, economic -or something else entirely. It certainly feels like something is coming down. 

In conversation a lot of people are telling me it feels like they are waiting for the other shoe to drop. Most of these people aren’t preppers but they follow the news. 

While people are worried, there’s not a lot of consensus on what to worry about. In general they pick their favorite fear and concentrate on that. Of course, there’s a lot to choose from. Here’s the thing about disasters -you can easily get more than one at a time.

Of course, the disasters are already here, depending on where you live. Eastern Kentucky was flooded. Ukrainians are in the thick of it. Sri Lanka is an economic basket case. Cuba just lost a lot of their oil storage in a massive fire. On top of that their ancient power plants are all well past their due date. Heck, it even matters what US state you live in. Some places are doing a lot better than others. Even your rights and freedoms vary by state.

Just like those pop us storm cells: some places are going to get while others have near misses.
