just a comment about the role of ice when dealing with summer heat and humidity in Florida, which coincides with the times of most likely weather events...I've been a year round shooting competitor for the last 35 years, and up until the last one primarily oriented on 3 gun competition... as I age (just turned 70) the ability to drink small amounts of ice cold water has greatly improved my overall adjustment to the heat, by lowering my core body temp...I drink about 1/2 liter per hour in small amounts... freezing a couple of bottles along with 3 chilled bottles for a standard 6 stage monthly match... for a 2 day area championship, I carry a about 12# of ice on the gun cart...for Irma I did not get any ice before the event... I should have...I will for the next one.... regards

It looks like the Middle East won't go nuclear this year after all. With that being the case, I have more time to prepare. With space I do have, some reorganization and a plan, I could shelter in place for up to eight months if it is not possible to get additional supplies (which I don't believe would be the case).

During this time we can discuss bug out plans. I'm all for bugging out. Mom, on the other hand, needs a sign from God (such as the ten plagues and the parting of the Red Sea) before she is ready to bug out.

God not only sends signs but arranges life so that his people end up where he needs them to be. One must only listen and watch.

An inventory list is nice too - as I just discovered I have four nearly identical tents ( sales, you know)
