Many of my clients have common “prepper fear” solely because they are unprepared for 3-Day temporary power outages let alone 12-Day outages, like we were challenged with in 2011. You can calm your fears and easily prepare for short-term power outages. My grandmother’s health declined rapidly in the 60 degree interior of the home and we were forced to take her to a nursing home, which all ran on generators. Sadly, our grandmother died just a few months later after a challenging recovery. In our home across the street, we boiled water to keep it above 63 degrees.
BE PREPARED for Short Term Power Outages to keep your Family Warm this Winter like it did in 2011 for 12 days in my hometown. It was 49 degrees in our home! Don’t be left in the cold —> Order a #PowerGeneratorbefore they sell out at: http://bit.ly/PrepareForPowerOutages #SellingOutFast#StayWarm #Winter2015 #WorstWinterEver #DefeatTheColdWar
- Buy the Generator before they are OUT OF STOCK everywhere with FREE SHIPPING on tons of models from: http://bit.ly/PrepareForPowerOutages
- Get Gas (check your model for gas usage, but guess on 10 gallons per day for storage for 10 days (100 gallons of gas reserves)
- Stay Warm and Powered on 5-7 gallons of gas per day (partial day running until sundown)
This is not a long term power solution, due to gas restrictions, but could help you stay warm and safe in your home during downed power lines or trees during storms as well. The term prepper just means prepared, there’s nothing “crazy” about being prepared to face another freak storm like we did in October 2011 that nearly killed my grandmother. Please, I don’t even want you to think of the situation she faced, due to Medicaid, being forced to “wait it out” at her home, as per her doctor’s orders, in a home we couldn’t keep warm enough. Please, don’t watch your family freeze to death and know you did everything possible to protect them and your loved ones in case of emergency.
LOS ANGELES – Climatologists are predicting that this winter will be unusual across the country because of El Niño that is brewing in the Pacific Ocean.
“There’s no longer a possibility that El Niño wimps out at this point. It’s too big to fail,” Bill Patzert, a climatologist for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, told the LA Times. “And the winter over North America is definitely not going to be normal.”
Scientists say El Niño is getting stronger because of rising sea-level ocean temperatures in the Pacific Ocean and a change of directions of the wind along the equator.
According to LA Times, that means that winter storms that normally drop rain in central America could shift north and move them over California and the southern United States.
Mike Halpert, the deputy director of the Climate Prediction Center, said this El Niño is the second strongest he’s seen at this time of the year.
“This could be one of the types of winters like in 1997-98,” Halpert said.
