I'd like to thank Bullseye for letting me do a guest posting! Hope you all like it and think about it.
Thursday night,you watch the 10 o'clock new's.A bombing here,a shooting there,a speech by somebody..same thing last night. It's friday morning,you wake up at 5:30..way too early,but it's the last workday,so,it's ok.You tippy toe around the house,don't want to wake the wife or kid's,as you'd catch heck all weekend.Flip on the coffee pot,hit the switch on the computer. Darn puter won't connect,keep's giving some stupid error message.Modem crapped out,the phone company,something,whatever. You grab your lunchbox/briefcase/coffee mug,and jump into your car.Pop in a cd,crank the stereo up,jam to your fav tune's.Cruising to work,you notice a lot of traffic heading the other way."Must be some gov't holiday,people heading out of town for a long weekend,or maybe an accident that way...poor sucker's!" You get to work,notice there are a lot less car's there than normal,you get a great parking space! COOL! You get to your cubicle,set your stuff down,turn on the puter,head to the break room for more coffee.Wow,the pot is almost full! I must be early! You chit chat with a few people,head back to your desk,sign on the puter to see your fav place's,catch up on mail or whatever. A typical day,right? Maybe not..You've been asleep for 8-10 hour's,missed out on anything that happened.Your puter headline say's WW3 or such started!A terrorist attack,a nuke plant in meltdown,(insert issue here).Great,your a half hour away from home,cell phone's are down,your wife and kid's are still asleep,and with the traffic you saw,at least an hour drive to get home and bug out,if you can.Now what? What's my point? NEVER do anything without information! If you neglect the information you need,your behind the curve! In this situation,your already at least 1 1/2 hour's behind bugging out! Had you known this at 5;30 or 6,you'd be loading up instead of headed to work! Now you have to get home,wake up everyone,load up and hit the traffic. I have no clue as to why,probably budget reason's,but have you heard a civil defense siren lately? I live near a school,the first saturday of the month,they tested the system at noon.I haven't heard one in at least 10 year's.If you heard one today,you'd figure it's a car alarm going off.The radio station's do a test every few day's,so we're immune to it anymore. I remember 9/11,I woke up,turned on the TV,saw a headline...Plane hit's WTC..I didn't think much of it,figured it was some sight seeing flight,as we have a lot of crashes here at the grand canyon,not a big deal.I jump in the shower,come out to see the video,and saw the second plane hit live.My first thought was that it was an instant replay..but the first tower was already on fire..I was confused! How could 2 sight seeing plane's screw up within 20 minute's?How did they get the video? Whatever.Had I not turned on the TV,I'd never known,till I got to work,got coffee,had a smoke or 2,then turned on the radio. So,to wrap it up,check the new's EVERY morning! If not for bug out info,just for the traffic new's! Not only will it save time for if SHTF,you'll be 1 step ahead of everyone else,hopefully!
