I am currently cleaning out a house that was once owned by one of the greatest collectors of military stuff I have ever known. And magazines, and books, and - the list goes on. I am also watching as hundreds of people buy case after case of drinking water as hurricane Irma advances.
What am I doing?
Sitting here writing a blog post. If the power goes out for weeks I would not be in the least bit concerned. I have a barbecue grill and more charcoal than you can shake a stick at. Plenty of wood to make fire as well. Two streams and a well if I need more. Even if all that failed I have barrels collecting rain water. Survival is easy really if you know what you're doing. These people should be buying a water filter not water.
If all the stores run out of food I'd survive. Canned goods, dry foods like pasta, long term storage foods such as potatoes, I'd be more than surviving I'd be thriving. A camp stove even to make my coffee or just a hot meal.
Most of all though I would have my brain. Go ahead and panic world, when the storm hits I'll be lighting a cigarette and pouring myself a glass of vodka.
All that said I still don't know how I feel about this article.
"Consider the water shortage currently plaguing residents of Texas and the overtly hostile backlash against those who raised the price of things like bottled water. Does this action hurt Texans, dumping on people who literally and figuratively are struggling to get their heads above water? Or do these higher prices benefit them, especially those most in need, by relieving them of having to deal with greedy hoarders, thus lessening the harsh realities of an immediate shortage of fresh water at their disposal?"
