Fire at HTI Recycling in Lockport, NY
So we have a local town called Lockport where, a couple weeks ago, a tire recycling plant caught fire. (That link doesn't mention a few sad details. I'm sparing you.)
Anyway, I watched a woman on our morning news say, "A policeman banged on our door and said we had three minutes to evacuate because of the toxic fumes heading our way. Three minutes!"
Eegads. They couldn't return to their homes for at least 48 hours.
Immediately I (a.) Felt bad for this woman and her neighbors and (b.) recalled the sorry state of our 'bug-out box' upstairs. We'd eaten up half the supplies and I'd not replaced them nor had I included things like a change of clothes for each of us. Of course, I'd meant to (you know how that goes) but just hadn't. It's now a To Do on my list this week.
See? Who even needs an end-of-the-world scenario in Today's world? Always it pays to at least be a low-key, sensible prepper who's ready for a handful of scary scenarios. Really, you never know.
How are your preparations going?
Here's my 'one stop shop for prepping' post.
Saw this commonsense article online this morning about bad habits which can contribute to depression and anxiety. I'd never heard of Vitamin F, but if you've read here long, you know I swear by Vitamin D3. :)
Spied this at Facebook yesterday:
Is that adorable or what?
Five years ago today we bought our own little yellow house. Can you believe it's been that long ago??
