Someone was asking me about the “zombie apocalypse” and would I be ready for such an event. I replied that yes I was ready. They said, “oh yeah, go turn the breakers off at you house for a week and see what happens” No problem there, my windmills and solar panels work great! “Would you be able to defend yourself and your home?” Yes, I guess I can. “We’ll yeah, what about food?” I have plenty of land, seeds, and chickens for eggs. I think at this point i think I ruined their whole line of questioning.
Then, with a smile they said, “what about communications?” They thought they got me. I replied, “which radio would you like to talk about? Single side band, hand held radios, CB radios, antennas?”
So my first though this morning, I guess I’m ready. I wasn’t purposely preparing for an apocalypse, but yeah, I think I’m prepared.
And this craziness about the “zombie apocalypse” what is it with people? Seriously? I suppose there’s always got to be a pending apocalypse… Y2K, 12-12-12, etc…
My second thought this week, when I plugged my coffee pot into my off grid system this morning, it drew so much power it was ridiculous. I’m glad they didn’t ask me about my coffee because I’m not going to make it. Did you know that a coffee pot draws 900-1200 watts? That’s nearly as much as a bathroom fan heater! I guess we could use the wood stove and a perk pot, but how inconvenient is that? I guess I’m not ready after all. Lol
