    Put preps to work today - 40+ mph winds, power went out at 10am - 4:30 pm

    UPS kept the modem, WiFi router, and 4G LTE Extender up and running - nothing else;
    - it also powers 1 monitor each and both are desktop computers - but we shut them down.
    Had solar lights for darker rooms
    Cell phones plugged into solar chargers

    Set up the 100 watt Goal Zero solar panel and connected it to the Yeti600X solar generator - plugged the UPS into it - had 17+ hours, plus charging around 60 watts - partly sunny

    About 3pm, setup and started the generator - ran it for an hour to run the water shed pump, the cistern pumps (collect property water and pump into creek), charge the Goal Zero via AC, cool down the garage freezer and the fridge in the kitchen

    Had leftover soup heated on the propane stove for lunch - normal stove/oven. Oven is not usable without electricity, but we didn't need it.

    Still want to change out the electric water heater for a propane one - probably cost around $700, but worth it in my opinion - next project.

    Listened to music on cell phone, wife on tablet, phone, and Kindle...did extra walks with the pup, securing garden row covers and checking for tree damage - none.

    All good now...
    Peace,

    Over the last few months we have been upping our preps here at home. More of everything with a target of being completely topped off by election day. Well election day is almost here so it’s crunch time. Over the next few days propane, diesel, and gas will be topped off. I already scheduled the propane truck to deliver this week. A trip to the butcher shop will top off the freezers. I’ve been spending a lot of extra cash but fortunately everything purchased will be used up sooner or later. A 3 month supply of dog food will be arriving soon. Meds, etc..... you get the idea. I’m hoping for the best, but trying to plan for the bad stuff I fear is soon coming. All generators tested and batteries checked. I’ve even secured the property for wintertime a little early this year so that everything is stowed and out of sight. Fingers crossed!

    I am doing the same thing. Extra can goods and dry goods. I'll wait till about the week before the election and top off the freezers with meats. Propane, over the counter meds, gas, ammo when I can find it, are all high priorities.

    I agree, been adding to the fuel stores, making sure freezers are full. Making sure lanterns are ready batteries are charged things of that nature. We did a lot of caring and also have a Lotta canned foods and dry goods.

    I purchased a Lifestraw for half-price on Amazon's Prime Day special. Nine bucks was a deal I couldn't pass up.

    I did the same but better yet Amazon had given me a coupon the day before for shopping with a small vendor for $10 so I basically got it for free!

    I've got about a little over $100.00 to spend on preps this week at Costco...They sent me my 5% (?) kick-back check in the mail. Still mulling it over as to what to buy. Thinking dog food, maybe. I could get 5 packs of the 24 can stuff for that amount.

    If there's no second amendment, they'll be no first amendment for very long either.

    Pumping up our supplies also, for the election "fallout".
    Prepping for 2 elk hunts, and a deer hunt, every week till election, PRAYING to put meat in the new chest freezer. It has been well stocked so far with small frozen dinners and a whole shit ton of green chile.

    Knocked together a two part compost bin made out of pallets. Doesn’t look very pretty but it’ll do the job it is made for. Now it’s time to get serious about bow hunting for a nice doe to put in the freezer.
