I remember the Hugo Storm. I was without power for over a week. I was unprepared and I did suffer. I have a friend who had a bunker built it is extremely nice and wh is 78. It has the basics and a source for her pet. It is a good project to build with the threat of weather and such. However I feel if we are in a nuclear war just stand outside and get it over. Years of soil and land to be renewed and the fallout form the nuc. is morbid to the body. Good luck. My husband has been talking about this and I agree. Thanks for helping me to get my collective self in order. Now you are sounding a little military but that s been my family for a long time......

I agree, if anything as major as a nuclear act, we are better to move on..My personal concerns are natural disasters of course but along with that other concerns would be a disruption in power or fuel supplies.If you have ever looked at our power grid systems, they are very outdated, inter-connected and fragile to either solar activity or computer virus. Loss of power would disrupt cash flow, food delivery, fuel delivery and basically everything we do .When I speak of prepping in think of terms of a few days or possibly a few months.

I ain't skeered of dying. I would rather somebody save a bullet for me & get me out before it get's too bad. Then that way i would be one less to worry about.

You people need to talk to spoon about the dangers of AZ. His mental status is no different from these little sh-ts who blow up a marathon, twin towers, fertilizer plant. Spoon is in danger and she doesn't even know it.

That AZ could cause her harm. He could wait for her at that office and kill her and kill that unborn kid. If he didn't want to do the job on his own it would be no surprise to hire a person to do it for his sorry ass.
Who are you talking about ?? I missed something somewhere.

I don't go to school. I said my two kids went to the same school that this piece of sh-t works at. How is a child counselor at a school going to help with this? If you don't know the damn story and if you can't help then shut up.
This is a serious issue among women who are verbally and emotionally abused.
what does all that have to do with prepping? if you are concerned for this person's health and welfare, you have a duty to report-meaning that you have a responsibility to contact law enforcement with any concerns you have for this woman. Topix is not the right place to get intervention for anyone.

I agree, if the situation is that serious you should notify law enforcement.

The situation between these individuals is bad. AZ don't give a sh-t about no one but his self. His ass should be locked up for the sh-t he gets away with.
Then pick up the phone, dial the digits, and report the situation to law enforcement! What are you thinking you are accomplishing by continually posting about these people otherwise? Do you think we know who this "Spoon" and "AZ" are? I have no clue and I would probably be safe to say nobody else here but you know these people either.

May I ask, what law enforcement is going to do? I mean a crime hasn't been committed. I assume that Jeff is saying that this AZ has the potential of hurting this woman Spoon. There unborn infant also. Can you come up with another brilliant idea sayhuh?

A restraining order will only depend on the laws in that state. Some states, a person needs to harass someone 3 times and then a restraining order is/can be issued. What is the law in NC. Evidently, this AZ guy lives in NC according to Jeff.

You are exactly right. What are the cops going to do? AZ's mental health can simply lead him in the direction of killing spoon and their unborn kid. What are the cops going to do other than talk to him? I advised spoon to be vigilant of her surroundings. Keep her cell with her at all times.
An even better question is what do you expect people who don't even know either of these individuals to do? Are we supposed to go on a cyber search in attempt to figure out who these people are?
This particular thread is about prepping, not about people's unfortunate lack of thought in becoming romantically involved with someone you say is an abuser.

Why are you trying to take this thread off topic exactly?

Oh great. Here we go again. So you are also Whiskey Tango Fox too huh? I wish Topix would go ahead and hire a mental health specialist and get it over with.

I am a person who has been on the receiving end of abuse. I don't put up with it. I gave as good as I got and got out. Words don't accomplish a thing-talk all day and all you get for the effort is a headache. Nobody can pull this woman out of a situation she chooses to stay in. Somebody had to get "romantic" somewhere if she is pregnant with this man's child. If he raped her, then it doesn't make good sense for her to continue trying to have him involved. You can't help a woman who refuses to help herself.

If you are in fact Whiskey Tango Fox and started this thread, you've knocked any chance of serious discussion about prepping or any other plan you might have had way out of the water.

You aren't trust worthy.

Whiskey Tango Fox, no disrespect intended toward you. Sometimes a person just has to clarify who is who here on topix. You have given no sign of lacking trust worthiness.
