With the weather being all out of whack in winter and the various extremes many of us have to face in order to get through it would help to know what climate changes we are facing.

There are certain terms that we must understand in order to NOT be caught off guard by changing weather patterns.

Knowing these terms ahead of time and plan accordingly is always good emergency management. Planning ahead turns a disaster into a plan of action.

Having an emergency radio on hand for events the power has gone out is good practice. Keep it where you can find it easily. You never know when it is going to come in handy. Make sure you replace the batteries in it from time to time so that you don’t have to fumble around when you need that radio the most!

Some of the terms we may hear on the emergency weather broadcasts may be found in the The Weather Channel’s Encyclopedia of Weather Terms. It is a great read.

Pillaging is NOT Preparedness

I have often heard people respond

Mad Max

to preparedness with the comment that they are going to pillage preppers stores.

Let me elaborate a little more on this topic.

I understand this macho comment is a very narrow view of what is going to really happen if the SHTF as we know it and we really find ourselves in a Mad Max society.

I am sure I am not the only one who has heard this one. Trusted friends who say they are just going to rob and kill people who have set up a back up. This statement has me really looking at the reasoning behind this attitude.

Beware of the Ostriches

First up we have the head in the sand phenomenon that goes with personalities of this type. These are the ostriches we need to be wary of. Usually they are brash and harsh in the way they carry themselves. I could go into pages of reasons they want to compensate but that is another blog in itself.

My concern is that the more I hear this the better you and I need to prepare to confront this outlook. The family I have is sacred enough to protect and defend in times of trouble and I do not understand the reasoning behind leaving behind your safe house to steal from another what you could have readily stocked yourself.
 

Pillaging requires:

  • A) A high amount of physical energy
  • B) Weapons and ammo to make it there and back (where ever there is!)
  • C) Knowledge of Combat tactics
  • D) A way to get back ALIVE to your safe house with the goods you took!

SO, you have left your family in the lurch by going out to conquer and pillage. You have left them to die? It occurs to me these individuals are the ones truly in the delusion that the world is theirs to claim. What they fail to understand is they will find others like them and suffer attack and injury and possibly fatal consequences of their own misguided deeds. They can probably achieve a couple of treasures for the take but the odds of them making it back to their strong holds are minimal.

These so called friends probably will be carrion for the crows in the fields.

Be prepared and beware of the pillagers.
