Making an Entrance

I would like to start with a very deep bow to Chris Byrne at The AnarchAngel for this post. This is the kind of thing that we don't give a whole lot of thought to, but we really should. In these uncertain times we really need to start seriously thinking about our personal security.

I encourage all of my readers to take a good close look at your homes and see if you can spot the weak points in your perimeter security. If you can close those, you may not have to defend the inner sanctum.

I give you this, maybe it sounds paranoid, but how many times do you see the victim say something along the lines of "I didn't think it would/could happen to me"? Maybe we should all take some time to realise that we don't make an appointment with a criminal. He/she/it just appears and we have to deal with it immediately. Obviously, the best is to make sure they can't get in. Second best, can't get to you and your family. Last line, you blast them.

In the same light, what about the weather? Where do you live? What has the weather thrown at your area in the past? Are you ready for that if it comes to your house? You better get ready, because the weather won't wait and you may not have a whole lot of warning.

It CAN happen to you, and you better already have a plan in place or you could be in a whole world of hurt.
