"Rolling Blackouts".........who cares!

When the lights go out due to Rolling Blackouts, an earthquake, fire, riot, or government ineptitude; will you be able to comfort your loved ones by being able to cook, boil water, or put on their favorite DVD? You can't just sit around and read blogs all day; you MUST prepare, practice, and practice again.

Make a battery bank from deep cycle batteries (make sure you keep them charged).
Buy or barter for a used battery charger with a light.
Buy or barter for a used generator.

Most importantly, know how to use them and oh, yea, practice.


  1. Good post, William. Be sure to keep an ABC rated fire extinguisher nearby.

  2. Thanks for the reminder about fire extinguishers. I do have them throughout the house; kitchen, garage, and in the master bed room. I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to add you site, Possum Liiving to my favoriate sites to visit. I really enjoyed checking our your site today. Keep up the good work!
