    Tropical storm Zeta is coming for a visit to Georgia tomorrow and Thursday, and since the power fails in my area when a bird flaps its wings, I figured out a way to keep the power from going out because if it.

    I went out and bought some non-perishable stuff to tide me over, a butane burner to cook on, I also had some stuff on hand. It's all unhealthy crap, but if Armageddon arrives, it beats eating bugs and rats.

    Tomorrow I'll go to the store for some ice for my cooler.

    I figure if I'm prepared for a power outage, it won't happen. If I weren't prepared the power would definitely fail. Murphys Law.

    I like the way you think!

    If the Power doesn't fail, return all that stuff and get yourself a New Tele.
    YEP!!!

    I just looked it up, you're in the 20% tropical storm wind probably zone in Atlanta, which means it will probably barely rain. I bet the local news is completely melting down :lol:

    Remindeds me of this

    Which seems like a joke, but it's the literal truth about how people here deal with hurricanes.

    I can stretch it, plus I have rice and pasta too. I have chicken and beef stock and noodles and ramen too, and some vegetables in the fridge that will keep in a cooler with ice

    It occurs to me that I should get or build some kind of battery powered guitar amp.

    Seems to me that it is a good idea to always have these supplies on hand. Perhaps a good reminder for others to be prepared.

    survival: first is... first aid, next is shelter, then water. food is last. that is the order in which stuff will kill you. you can live without food a couple weeks if you have WATER. if you only have to worry about food, a pound of oatmeal will fill the hole for days

    Best of luck to you. That's a cool single burner, I think I'm going to get one.

    We try to keep a months worth of supplies on hand at all times. It's not the best stuff to eat, but when the hoarding started here in spring, and folks in stores were getting bent out of shape, we didn't have to go anywhere near the crazies till things leveled out.

    You need more alcohol in your survival kit. Never forget the alcohol:)

    We went down to New Orleans last fall and a tropical storm popped up in the gulf. Being from the mid-west, we were very concerned. As we were checking in to the hotel, the desk clerk assured us that this "happens all the time" and was no big deal. He was 100% right. Interesting to get the local perspective vs. what we were hearing on the news in Chicago. Stay safe!
