A Note to All Preppers from FC

The Bugle hasn’t has news or updates due to our getting caught in a giant hurricane and having computer trashed and having regional internet service utility trashed too.

FC is OK but The Bugle will not have regular posts for some more months as the internet goes in and out. That said, we just would like all of our prepper friends to know these watch words from sad experience.

WATER

Again – water goes away a lot faster than food. For 1 person in a house 6 cases is just not enough. 4 cases makes a nice table and you can put a table cloth over it. A storm or hurricane wrecking water tanks, infrastructure causes such a long water outage you will need every drop. And forget that out-of-date stamp. You will be fine drinking 2 year old bottled water. Boiling water uses lots of cooking gas so all is best if you have the bottled water on hand in advance of any bad event or weather.

The utility shut water down way earlier than the hurricane hit so my plan to fill lots of stored bottles went awry. They have to not let all the water go low to hold the sides of the water tanks up against storm force.

So go buy some water this week. Make tables out of it.

People need to be prepared with some food stuffs for several days even if you don’t live next to a dam or a giant sinkhole. It’s just common sense.
