EMP Are You Really Ready?

         This Clip above is from War of the Worlds and the Effects of an EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse)

An EMP is a difficult event to understand since this can happen either by the Sun or Man. In either case we will lose alot of modern day conveniences. Example:

-No Light
-No Phone
-No Vehicles will work
-No Water
-No Clocks/Watches
-No Cooking/Microwave/Refrigerator
-No Computer
-No Heating
-No Cooling
-No Generators
-No leaving your immediate area unless on foot
-No Sump Pumps working
-No Batteries will work

Possible Scenarios:
Planes, Helicopters, and Space Satellites, fall from the sky. Boats,Transporters, Cruise Ships stop working in the Oceans/Seas. No communication for help or ability to get it.

No working fire trucks, ambulance, or emergency assistance. No immediate law enforcement to help.

Nuclear Power Plants cannot cool themselves and fail!

No Medicine that requires cooling

No Bridges can rise or go back down (if caught in open position)

The list go's on and on

Now is the time to Plan. Practice 1 or 2 days of no electricity in your homes. How would you use your supplies. Do you have enough water? The water will not be working. Do you have a way to cook/heat food. Is it hot or cold outside?  How will you deal with cold weather? What foods do you have on the ready for easy consumption/cooking. Do you have back up light source (candles/oil lamps). Do you have enough lighters/matches. Have you thought of the bathroom Baby Wipes for cleaning (many options). Cleaning soiled clothes, First Aid Kit, Medicines. Do you have a place close buy to forage fruit trees. Do you have a garden use it and beware that others may help themselves. Does your library have books on natural healing, cooking, first aid, medicines, and more. Keeping your home clean is very important it will reduce the chance of illness/disease. The list goes on and on....

Keeping yourself busy will help if its cold outside. Keeping children busy and occupied will be best.
Thinking ahead of time for meals, weather, and anything your home may need to get by and getting it done as soon as you can.

Wood stoves and fireplaces will be your heating source and cooking area. If yo have neither think of what options are out there. I just wanted to give you all a bit of food for thought. I know I haven't covered everything but I wanted to plant the seed.

Proverbs 31:10-31 The Wife of Noble Character

                                    Proverbs 31:10-31 New International Version (NIV)

Epilogue: The Wife of Noble Character

10 [a]A wife of noble character who can find?
    She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
    she provides food for her family
    and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
    and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
