I once worked with a woman who only gave her dogs bottled water to drink. When asked if she could drive a vehicle with a manual transmission, she replied, “Oh no! I’d rather walk!” Seriously? There was no pioneer spirit there! In post SHTF, people like this may find it difficult surviving, much less finding bottled water for their dog. Preparing for emergencies or post SHTF can be overwhelming and expensive, but there are many ways to prep on a budget.
Two years ago when a derecho (Editors note: a widespread, long-lived, straight-line wind storm) came through our area, the power went out for several days. With temperatures hovering in the mid to upper 90’s, we pulled out the generator and headed for the basement, where it was cool. We were lucky to be able to get gasoline, as only one gas station among many in our community had electricity, and neighboring towns had none. Grocery stores were closed. Even though people said that the power company would have it up and running in no time, a slight edge of fear and panic hovered in the back of their minds. You could see it in their eyes.
