    I know first hand how good it is to be stocked up. We watched the others on battery powered TV down here in Houston waiting in LONG lines. Even though a lot of the power here is back on, hardly any of the gas stations are open.

    We put a lot hours on the generator. Kept the food from spoiling. I went and restocked my gas reserve today and came home to find my power back online. :-)

    We had dinner at a good little place that is not real popular, so it was not crowded. We just walked in and sat down and ordered the meal. How you miss something when it is gone.

    The last five nights have been without utility power, internet, open gas stations or, restaurants. The gas stations around here are still closed.

    CHEERS!!!!

    Curfews at night but, the toll roads are still free for now. Hear looters are robbing every night on the scanner. Armed car jacking constantly. Kick burglaries, Every day.

    The government had to give out truckloads of MRE's and water to the ones who did not stock up. Why, so that they would not start raiding folks who did. A continuous hand out of food and water to who would be making a real effort to obtain it from those who stocked their own stores by working for money to pay for it.

    But, property taxes will keep going up to pay for all of that stuff the government gave out free to them. Because they will threaten to raid the people who made their own stores at a cost.

    Funny how the SHIT oops, I mean SYSTEM works!?!?!

    I've been working on ammo, one or two more kits I'm eying all while hunting for a homestead in teh country where I can garden and dig a good size pond. I'm close but not there yet! I feel fortunate considering how bad many folk have it right now!
