>> ARE YOU READY? <<
Wasn't that a big hit song (by Peaches and Herb, maybe) back around 1964?
As for electrical power disruptions, as ready as I'll ever be. We had some freezing rain last night, but the power stayed on (hooray!) and tonight they are promising high winds and rain. We'll probably need to break out the kerosene heater again before the winter's over. We seem to lose power for at least 12 hours every winter. The heater, the cord of dry wood, and wearing a sweater should keep us warm enough until the power comes back on.

I just finished up those huge sacks of dried beans. You mean I gotta get more?

I still have many bottles of lamp oil, oil lamps, kerosene, propane, cook stoves, plenty of candles, rice and bean sprout seeds. I still have lots of water stored under my house. Red, you may be right about our power situation here in CA.
