Yesterday I bought another 15L water tank.
Also bought drill bits and many nails of various sizes if I had to improvise chicken coop in the small tool shed I have in the garden

Picking up another deep cycle battery today. Paired with a small inverter, I can keep stuff going at night without running my generator if need be...
+

And something like this would charge that deep cell right back up at lowish cost.
>> Just need to make cables from your battery to controller.

I have a few of this style gas can. They would be easier to use if the nozzle is an inch or two longer. This would allow the nozzle to reach into our car's gas filler port more easily.

In prep for possible power outages, (now that we are full swing into hurricane season, and ofcourse the up coming winter with possible outages,) I want to freshen up my storage supply of fuel.

I bought a funnel, to aid in pouring gas from those cans into our cars, so that I can put fresh gas into the cans.

Also, I started and ran both generators for their seasonal prep.

Talked to my friend about possible blackouts because of missile attacks at power plants. Hi said that a led in his smartphone is enough. Also he has no power banks. Don't know what to say.

This does not surprise me, I have seen hikers (with family) face the dark in the woods or mountains without a flashlight and replying "we have smartphones"
He may be looking for a missile attack app on his phone.

Millions of people using a cellular phone for a flashlight says they must be pretty good at being flashlights.
Just sayin'.
Now we here at CPF know better but the lenmings and sheeple don't.
