In this alternative universe I have a work trip to DC this week. So the avoidance portion of my prep is mostly out the window. Though I don't realistically think there will be any major events here or anywhere.. But I did drive instead of fly. Brought my bag of freeze-dried backpacking meals and stove I keep stocked for quick I want to camp trips. Even filled the tub when not using (no cost prep to me) Incase need to shelter in place. Checked on my 'gym' bag I keep in a locker here at the office and updated the shoes in it. Wear suits when I'm here (about once a month) so good to have better shoes and some snacks, a mora, etc always here In case I fly up to work (don't like to check bags when I fly).

I will keep an extra weather eye while I'm here.

It still enrages me when I think of all the **** I received because of it, and Reagan's constant hardline rhetoric. Another cold war means my kids will grow up with a similar experience.

How the heck do I prepare them for that?
Move to Alaska where Russian Americans are the majority?

My family and I have already discussed moving up our time table for the impending OK to AK move if gets too hairy in the lower 48.

That. Just. Happened.

Early in the night, I looked at my wife and said, "it looks like Hillary is going to win. I'm depressed and I need a cookie."

Later in the night, I looked at my wife and said, "it looks like Trump is going to win. I'm depressed and I need a cookie."

I'm starting to wish I'd gone for Jack Daniel's instead of Chips-ahoy.
