I’m feeling that the “protests” are just going to intensify between now an d 11/3.
I also think that someone or some group is going to “go off” on the protesters and we’ll lose a lot or protestors or get into a firearms skirmish on the streets.
Today’s escalation won’t end well, and I do not look forward to reading the news tomorrow morning while eating my yogurt.
Prepping: We are about 5 ish weeks away from the election.
The number one thing you can do to prepare is if you live in an urban area or a potential target area for “protests” plan to visit a relative for a few days. In other words, Bug Out on the 2nd.
Prior to that weekend, so maybe October 20th or 30th, regardless where or how far away from a “hot spot” you live. Hit the grocery store and stock up on things you’ll need for about a week to ten days. Basically a self imposed SIP (Shelter in Place).
If you’re living in the burbs, chat it up with your like minded neighbors and have a plan. Discuss who possibly would have a more defensible home, maybe the home in the back of the neighborhood, or the one made with all stone. A house at the entrance to the neighborhood and a corner lot, eeeek, maybe not the best spot.
If you have more than 1 car, maybe out on the street or in the driveway, find a friend, church, or country grocery store or something further out to park your extra cars.
REMEMBER: Homeowners, auto, etc. insurance does NOT pay claims in the event of loss due to “Civil Unrest”.
Some umbrella policies do, so check into that, asap.
Stay safe and hope to hear stories, updates and your thoughts.
