So I lived through a SHOCKING earthquake yesterday on the 4th floor of my office building. Impressive.
I went on vacation a couple weeks ago. It was a camping trip, so I had a full truck of Bug Out Bag with me, and I took out the regular BoB before I left. Thing is, I hadn't put it back in the truck...
Yesterday I pounded in a post that was loose and helping prop up a young dogwood tree. I took the 4 pound sledge I use for tent stakes and emergency egress out of my truck to do this chore. Thing is, I hadn't put it back in the truck after...
I was thinking of these things as I went down the stairs to flee our office building. 25 miles from my BoB bag and sledge.
I have corrected this oversight. Now. After the horses have left the barn I closed the barn door.
One of the things I like about this area is we don't get many natural disasters like out west. No mudslides, volcanoes, fires, tsunamis, droughts, earthquakes... The occasional hurricane. Well this week we get a 5.9 tremblor and this weekend the hurricane might pass overhead.
No matter how crummy your day was - You didn't go through this: How we find such soldiers, I can't fathom. The Republic is still in good hands, at least in this way. (via)
