Nysia's Homestead Journey

I mentioned in a recent post, Our First Steps to Preparedness, Michael and I began this journey with these thoughts in mind:

  • Some type of disaster situation, such as Katrina, where we might be forced to live off what we had in our home for an extended period of time.

Later, an event in our town had the police in a panic. One officer force-evacuated our minor children (in shorts and flip flops) by yelling at them to “run that way” while pointing his finger down the street! There was no reasoning, no planning, and a non-existent level of confidence in authority.
