Preparedness: Some Random Thoughts

Recently, I have started carrying my wallet on my morning walks. Since we live in an increasingly intrusive police state, I figure that sooner or later I'll be stopped and asked for i.d.

Then there will be the inevitable questions about what business I have taking a walk within a half mile of my own house. For that I will need more than i.d. -- I'll need a calm, respectful but firm demeanor.

A couple of weeks ago, I finally got around to cutting down a huge, dead limb from the apple tree in our front yard (before it fell on someone). This afternoon, we are enjoying the warmth that the surprisingly dense wood provides us.

It's not that chilly today, but it's an overcast, rainy day. The little woodstove I set up on our enclosed porch puts out enough BTU's to take the damp chill out of the living room, dining area and kitchen.

I'm saving our oak firewood for a power outage from an ice storm or other such occurrence.
