I hope you all had a nice Christmas and are doing well.
As I was channel surfing the other night, I came upon an advertisement on the History International channel. They are doing a special two hour presentation on "The Crumbling of America." This program appears to be about America's infrastructure regarding roads, bridges,and pipelines carrying water and/or gas. The program will look at the history and condition and the effects of deterioration of our infrastructure. For anyone that is interested in watching this program, it will be on Wednesday December 30 at 10p.m. It is channel 116 on Time Warner Cable. I am not sure about other cable networks, though.
Do you live near a large body of water or a bridge that could be deteriorated? And do you have an escape route if the integrity of a dam or bridge were compromised? These are things to think about if an evacuation were necessary in your area.
Also it looks like the preppers movement is now going mainstream. An interview with Newsweek titled, "Rise of the Preppers: America's New Survivalists," is available for all to read over at www.americanpreppers.com or : http://www.newsweek.com/id/228428/page/1. The survival mom did a great job on this interview.
