Well, winters here with a vengeance. Yesterday my work closed the office at 3:30 so we could all get home before the worst part of the storm hit...it was almost too late. Traffic was going about 30 MPH or so in a 65 MPH zone, the news stations were reporting more accidents than they said that they could count. So I kicked the ole jeep into 4x4 (doesn't help much on ice, but every little bit helps I reckon. Made it to the homestead after a much longer drive, but got inside, poked up the fire, put some more wood on it, grabbed a cold coke and watched the ice storm come. It was a good evening. As I was watching the news yesterday evening, it showed people standing in lines at the local grocery store, walmart, heck, it even showed a couple of people at kmart it was that bad (LOL). It just struck me as funny that this is what the majority of sheeple feel as "prepping". "Honey, there is an ice storm coming and its starting to come down, I am going to go get prepared". I can't imagine what its going to be like if something real goes down. I can say one thing, I don't want to be within 5 miles of a store when it happens.
