I have worked in midtown and down town Manhattan since the late 80s, so I have put some thought into a scenario such as this. I experienced the power outage in 1996 (IIRC), 9-11 and Sandy. Here are a few of my observations on each of those. Power ou

Water system malfunctions happen from time; I can recall two in my city over the last twenty years that caused us to boil water - not a bid deal, really. After all, boiling water is,or should be, a regular procedure when using most natural sources

My other half loves the Dollar Store and finds all sorts of good stuff that's inexpensive. I went along a few months back and found a set of kitchen knives, two Santoku, one large, one smaller -- the set for $4. They are very good knives.

The Shortwave Coil Up Antenna is a good option if you choose to keep a shortwave radio as a receiver for use after an "event". Cheap and fairly foolproof. As for a decent radio, there are lots, just check Amazon. I keep a CountyC

There's a water main break close by and now this area is under a boil-water advisory. I have to drink bottled water. I look at this as a dress rehearsal. http://www.fox13news.com/local-news/56839475-video Jeanette Isabelle

Since in the recent bear defense discussion, some people point out that while the chances of getting killed by a bear is really low in general, once you go into bear country, the odds are "way up." What's way up? Here we have some numbers.

There are three classes of disaster. Those you'll survive no matter what you do, those you'll survive if you prepare appropriately, and those that are not survivable. I focus on avoiding personal disasters (maintaining my car, driving safely, stayi

I too have faced this question. My Dad simplified it best, in my opinion. Prepare for things that are likely to occur and affect me. Ignore those threats that I can neither prevent, influence, or mitigate. Stay in God's path. He will have you where

JI, unless you are ultra-orthodox, the weight of Jewish theological analysis is that Revelations is best understood as an allegorical story, not literal writ. It is meant to teach the concepts of the continuing battle, which we and society faces,

Speaking from the psychological point of view, when you focus on something so intensely, it can create expectations and even hopes. Some people who focus on such end time beliefs, to the exclusion of other aspects of their religion, feel the need to

Jeanette, if you are asking this type of question I would guess that perhaps it is time to step away from that type of study for a while. As we know, balance is the key to any endeavor in life. The study of Scripture is the same. All aspects of it
