Good article Daisy...very well put together....a great 'profile' pic too.Keep up the good work.
Thank you for stopping by and for the nice compliment, Anton!!!! :)
This is easy. If the "lights go out", I'm moving in with Daisy and company. I'll bring food, flashlights, "protection"(the kind that goes "bang"), sleeping bags, and my woman. May still have some left over rattlesnake jerky too. I could be a real ASSet!

miss daisy, will you marry me?styx
Daisy this was such a good article for beginners. There are so many possible scenarios that could force us into a non-electric lifestyle that we MUST have the ability to plan and adapt accordingly. I think Superstorm Sandy and last summer's blackout along the East Coast were both eye-openers to many people. I can't imagine being a victim of Sandy's wrath and having no ability to help myself or my family. Hopefully many will have learned life-lessons and become better prepared for the next time. One thing we can know for sure -- it will happen again. You are so right about having to adapt and also having the resources to switch from electric power to alternate energy sources. ~Z~
great article, especially for beginners. I really like the look and feel of your blog, thanks for sharing. We are getting ready to have a "rehearsal" weekend where we turn everything off after work on Friday and see how it goes. It's hard to find the tim to do this, but I think we will learn a ton.
Thank you!Please let me know how your rehearsal goes! Every time we drill, we learn something! It's far better to plug those holes in your preps now rather than in the midst of an emergency!~ D
