"To my 'neighbor to the north' Dewey"
We are right in the middle of the middle of
the State...I have a feeling if things got REALLY bad earthquake-wise,
we'd be in swamp land! The San Andreas to our West, hooks up with the
fault that hit Coalinga really hard in the 80s...if the classic
"California falls into the sea" thing happens, this valley will be
flooded. Honestly, if we can go over to the Kettleman Hills and pull
our sand dollars and other sea fossils, we know that this was an ocean
floor at one time.
My daughter has a bunch of 'toy' guns...but
they can shoot those hard pellets if you load them with such. My
husband is a cop, and only has his 'service weapon'...but he keeps it
at his work. Since he thinks I worry for nothing, I doubt that he would
bring it home. :(
I keep feeling like I want to invest in some
good fences around the property, but we are on 1/2 an acre, a very
large expense. Also would love to get some big dogs again (we had them
when we were at our last place). But again, I'd need to fence in the
front and secure the sides/back better.
Yep, I feel like a
pregnant woman, in the 'nesting mode' that every gal who's had babies
knows. But this is on a much grander scale.
I too believe we ARE
going to go through the beginnings of the 'bad times'...it's going to
get as bad as can be before we are rescued...then it will literally be
all 'H' breaking out!!
I decided I am going to open the box on
my new dehydrator today, and gonna start using it. I can't afford to go
and stock up much, but I can sure use what my own yard supplies (nuts,
citrus, olives, grapes...). Even if we are Raptured sooner, at least I
can feel like I'm doing something besides waiting and praying.
