First Day of Spring for Illinois

Actually, it's the first day of spring for everyone. The contrast from the north part of the state down to the south is striking, to say the least.

The southern part of the state, outside the major cities (college town, etc) show an extreme not obvious in the northern parts of Illinois. The stress down here is really beginning to show. One Dead, One Arrested, this incident happened just a couple miles south of the farm, my family knows all the people involved... More and more people for whatever reason, are turning to drugs and the task force is operating in full swing trying to keep up. Cops grab meth stash.

On top of the immediate troubles for the state, budget crisis, over loaded prisons, higher taxes, soaring fuel and food prices, low wages if you can even find work etc, we have now committed to butting our noses in where we just don't belong. "long war".

Now is the time to be worried about your own family and your own well being. Look what's going on in Japan for example. A very strong culture, rich with tradition, very little left after 3 major disasters. One still affecting them, raining radiation down on them by the second. People without food, water, shelter, no emergency preps available for those that so desperately need them. The time is now to be considering what you can do to protect yourself and your family.

Keep prepping...

So good to hear from you here, MM. Good post! I agree and am so saddened that we are starting another darn war. It is so disheartening. Ugh. Definitely time to get our homes in order. Spring always awakens that feeling in me!

I agree Gen. down here looks like a third world country with the empty store fronts and empty houses. Now folks are starting to fight each other. The stress is thick enough to cut and our government is oblivious. Stupidity at it's finest and we're paying them for it. Drive 50 miles into Carbondale and it's like being on another planet with the people running around wasting money like it's free. Amazing.

Wow. Well, it's definitely 'business as usual' up here. I can't even imagine what it's like down there. What a sad, sad time. Stay safe please!
