Speaking of emp, we had a wind storm that hit our county. A city just south of me was hard hit, 75 mph winds, power poles snapped in half, it was a real mess. The power company shut the power off to the whole city as there were so many live wires down in the roads.
We had power, but word got around and we took a ride to go check it out and check on my wife’s sister. Her road was a mess. We did have to go off road a bit, but we made it to her house. She was freaked out.Playing nervously with her hair constantly, she said, “I’m about to have a nervous breakdown.” So I drove the half hour back to my house, get my gennie, lights, lanterns, bottled water, bring them back, and hook everything up for her. As prepared as we are, she is the total opposite! She got a little tongue lashing from my wife and I both, and she said she couldn’t get a few things together cause she lives paycheck to paycheck. Yet she has a barn full of crap she never uses. Tables, chairs, mirrors, etc…..I told her it’s time for a garage sale and time to start becoming more self sufficient.
