Avoid the Zombie Apocolypse (or, you know - bad weather)
on October 28, 2009
Unlike a lot of books in this field - this ISN'T a hysterical threatening account of how we are doomed to huddle in caves clutching a last lone can of spam as the zombie hordes overwhelm the world. Its a calm, lighthearted, but well written manual for dealing with the simple fact that, well, crap happens. No matter where you live, at some point you are going to have to deal with either a blizzard, a blackout, or just a night when the roads are too slick to venture forth to the grocery story... and how to prepare for those issues ahead of time. The moment the ice storm starts is a wee bit too late to realize you have nothing in the cupboard - and the author works really hard to explain how to avoid that scenario.
The world is too full of easily hysterical people who panic when the rain falls. Buy this book and avoid the herds of people who only remember AFTER the hurricane is sighted that they must, right now, this minutes, go to the store and buy water.
When even the government is telling folks that they need to be able to manage for a few weeks (or months) in times of crisis - this is a great book to start walking you through the process of preparing. Preparing for what?
And this book proves it doesn't have to be any more dramatic than that.
