Ooh - a new one. I was thinking of re-reading the first one after it fell off the shelf the other day and landed next to me. Probably not an omen - just a badly organized bookcase.

I will go on the book store on my ipad and get the new book! Love the last one.

Guys we will go back to the middle ages if we lose electricity. Better gun up. I have been lax in my store of meds and some other items. I am getting hand drills and hand drivers if we have no electricity.   It will make building easier I keep trying to stock 2X4 and plywood.

Came home last night to find my wife reading the first book. I guess she liked it as she read it in one evening.

very good article
well worth a few minutes of your time

Why Is This Fed Official Worried About a Solar Storm?

http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-05-25/why-is-this-fed-official-worried-about-a-solar-storms

some of the more salient points

“citing another research paper published in the journal Space Weather that predicted there’s about a 12 percent chance of “another Carrington event” occurring by 2022.”

“The Lloyd’s study offers an even bleaker assessment, claiming such a storm is “almost inevitable in the future.”

and note what they say about having cash on hand for such an event

"One report estimates that a Carrington-level storm today could result in power outages affecting as many as 20 to 40 million Americans for a duration ranging from 16 days to two years at an economic cost of up to $2.5 trillion."

This is what happens when they quote people who either (A) lie for a living to make everyone feel warm and fuzzy about our government's ability to take care of us, or (B) have no freaking idea what they're talking about.
A Carrington level event might knock out power to 10% of the US population for as little as a couple of weeks? Seriously? Shame he's off by orders of magnitude - it would be more like everyone on Earth in the dark for potentially decades, at a cost we couldn't begin to calculate. And a rerun of 1859 today could see 90% of the population of the developed nations dead within a year. Meanwhile, the payments risk expert is worried that we might not be able to use our debit card for a while. I'm guessing he's not a prepper.
Still a good article, Satori. Thanks for sharing  Thumbs Up

it is not governments job to tell the truth
it is to  maintain calm

guess they just wanted to put a "little" scare into people ???

I think you nailed it - that sounds just about right.

Well it would get interesting if this happened. Guys anything can happen and I believe most of us are more ready than most people on earth. I just try and keep adding to my stores to try and cover as many scenarios of TSHTF as I can afford to do.

I don't worry so much because I pray that God gives me the wisdom to know what to do and when to do it. If not I will be dead along with many others.

I've only read the first one. My wife (who thinks I'm a tad crazy for prepping) has actually read the first two. She'll probably be done with the last one before I get around to the second book.
