Listen to this article: This is a short post with two videos to alert you of a potential cyber pandemic (hackers/ internet virus) and how badly our leadership (our governments)…
Saving Freezer Meat –
In this article, I’m going to cover how I plan to save our freezer meat in the event of a power outage using two scenarios – A short-term (A few days to a couple of weeks) and a Full-out grid down SHTF situation. This is going to be fun!(more…)
Heating Our Home In A Power Outage is part two of my After Action Report from last week after our power went out for a day. I was able to put some of our preps to use and work on an after-action report. I wanted to make ‘heating our home in a power outage‘ a separate article.
Here we go…(more…)
We were blessed with another one-day power outage last Saturday. Not wanting a perfectly good power outage to go to waste, I have my After Action Report.
Here’s what I came up with:(more…)
This post will cover some of the basics of an EMP Attack (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) and then offer my own opinion on the potential threat we face.(more…)
Thinking about building a blackout kit? In this article, I’ll go over some of the preps we have in place to make life a little more bearable when the power inevitably goes out.
This is the second and final post in the two-part series of – Building A Blackout Kit. See part one here: An Emergency Generator.
I believe all of us have had the power go out where we live. Even a completely self-sufficient person living off the grid (Which I am not) will likely face a power failure at some point. Part of being prepared includes being ready for the juice to stop.(more…)
In part one of this two-part blackout kit series, A Basic Emergency Generator, I want to cover what I know about using a generator for the temporary but inevitable power outage.
The key phrase there is “What I know“. In other words, using a basic gas-operated emergency generator. Period. That’s what I have and use. Not a solar generator, whole house, or even an inverter generator.
While all of those sound like fantastic ideas, I want to stick to blogging about what I actually have experience with.
What you’ll get here is my story, what I learned, and how I think I can improve my own situation. Maybe that will help you. So here we go:(more…)
