From your mouth...
Because you are correct. You don't have to be prepared for everything, just BETTER prepared than those around you...
I don't worry about the calender, asteroids, God's Wrath.
Earthquakes? Sure. Civic unrest? You bet. Himself lived in Detroit back in the day and I had family
The house is made of old growth redwood, doesn't break, barely burns. Bolted and eyebeamed within an inch of its life. The pantry will feed us long enough for aid to arrive or for us to decide a change of scenery would be healthful for a while. The family
plan for meeting, and fall backs, are in place. Most of us could walk home from work or school
in a under an hour easily, barring injury or other obstacles.
The one member
of the family who is across the bay is an avid distance biker and assures me he WILL get home in under 7 hours by biking to the south bay and then up the peninsula...
I think I fall into the group that was raised to feel that we have a fair degree of responsibility for our own well-being.
If the fit hits the shan that bad and nothing is going to help, then so be it. Hope we go in the first wave of whatever it is.
But it seems more likely to be *Something* less cataclysmic than the end of it all.. and in that event, I would rather have put a few plans and preparations in place. I was raised to take care of my family and I take that seriously.
So Zombies beware... the *Other Houses* are better targets.
PROMISE : - l
And if it is a catasylm and we survive the main event... well I figure we STILL have a heads up on survival over all the walking brain donors out there who haven't ever done anything to get ready for more of a challenge than a tough friday night at the local saloon
So bring on the Hollywood scenario. It'll be an adventure ; -)
