WHAT HAVE YOU DONE THIS WEEK TO PREPARE? PART 43 in Are You Really Ready? Posted October 23, 2014 Since I have lost a lot of weight, I do get cold faster. If you have to bug out and camp, let us know. I will pray for you. For you to even consider it, is amazing. You have really put so much thought into this. I need to learn from your posts on what to consider. Oh, my, I know we have to do what we have to do. Yes, you are right. Our winters are not anything like yours. You have made me think about how I would handle things if things went south fast. We do not have an alternate source of heat. We live in a double wide and have been told it would not be safe to put in a wood burning stove. I really need to research this though. When I was young, we had swamp coolers. I can still remember wetting down the pads, and running inside to stand in front of the blowers. It was wonderful and smelled so good. Don't ever remember being extremely hot back then. My job growing up was the ironing. I would put the ironing board up in front of the cooler, and iron and iron and iron watching American Bandstand. You have made me realize there is still so much to do---and I do not mean Ironing. I still hate to iron. We moved 2 1/2 years ago and it took me two years to find my iron. I did not miss it one bit. Now, I need to make some more apple butter.
