      I thought it would be fun to start a thread on the ridiculous prices of items and/or crazy things you see going on in the stores in your neck of the woods.

      2 days ago the local grocery store had a “sale” sign “get it while you still can” for a 32 oz. carton of Orange Juice @ $3.99  … gulp … what I consider a sale is $2.00 – $2.50.   The bacon is untouchable at $8.00 – $9.00.  There is still plenty of chicken and hamburger meat on display.  The Bakery Dept bread went up $1.50 per loaf so I’ve been buying frozen pretzels.  25 seconds in the microwave and they are ready to eat. :yes:   I was able to get a few bags of store brand flour for only 99 cents – it was a sale and the expiration date is 2023.  Now comes the hard part … I’m just not sure how to make the homemade bread.  I still have to purchase yeast and find recipes.   B-)  Ready made frozen entrees meals used to be 5 for $10.00 and now marked 4 for $10.00.  Iceberg Lettuce head is $3.99 and looks like it came off the “Ever Given” ship. :-(   My salads now … minus the lettuce … is just chopped up cucumbers/ tomatoes and carrots with the dressing.  Bananas are still reasonable but most of the “fresh” fruit is VERY expensive so I have to settle for the can fruit.   I walked passed the corn on the cob display … $1.00 each … I remember when the cobs were 20 cents each.

      About 3 weeks ago I was at Home Depot in the plant dept … in all the years I’ve known … you could always, without fail, find reasonable price plants and sale bargains …  not this time …their prices were sky high for plants that looked half dead … you had to be VERY desperate to purchase anything that day …

      I bought gas today. At $1.55 Canadian dollars a litre, that works out to about $4.82 USD per gallon.

      I see just across the border in Bellingham, Washington they are averaging about $3.00 per gallon.

      Needless to say, we are getting massively ripped off in Canada. High gas prices = higher food prices. *Ugh*

      I sell for an equipment trailer manufacturer. Since January last year, our prices have gone up 18% to the dealers we supply. On top of that, steel, lumber, tires, axles, and just about everything else has gotten scarce and increased in price by historic amounts. Lumber is up 300% in some cases. I know I keep harping on the positioning of the seals, but if the state of all this across the supply chains at large isn’t black horse territory, I don’t know what is.

      shipping is affected. it was always a bit slower waiting for “island” delivery vs living on the mainland. but it used to be that appliances could be found, to purchase a floor model or shipping was a week or so away. we were looking for a new dishwasher in April. our first choice was eta mid June. second choice was mid may. we went with the may one. still waiting…

      Geri, i’ve made homemade bread and rolls many times. without the bread machine B-)  if you would like, pm me. we can talk bread.

          ;-) here’s a couple,

          don’t stick to the recipe amount for flour. put less than it calls for in the bowl. add whatever you are going to use to the flour. I like cardamom in bread or sometimes raisons, or whatever you want, herbs… after you have added the liquid and dissolved yeast, beaten eggs if you have eggs in bread, then begin to add flour and stir it in, then knead it in, just until the dough doesn’t stick to the bowl or counter. thats how much a loaf really takes. place the dough in a greased bowl with a warm damp cloth on top. I roll the dough in the bowl to have the outside lightly greased. paper towels will just stick to the dough so make sure to use a cloth.

          have the oven heated to lowest setting, 160 or 170. then turn it off. put the bowl in with the damp cloth on it. it will rise like a charm. depending on the recipe, then either punch it down when its doubled and let it rise again, or shape it into round loaves to bake on a cookie sheet or loaf pan loaves after one rising and let it rise while the oven heats to temperature for baking. :heart: :good: it works

        Thanks Regina and Loz for your recipes.  Good suggestion Churchgirl … starting a bread thread would be GREAT. :good:   I did see at the store “self rising” flour … does that mean no yeast is needed?  Also they had “bread” flour.  Is that the flour everyone should be using to make bread?  Here I bought the cheap store brand that just says “unbleached” flour.  They also sell pizza dough already made … right now its $1.99 for a package …used to be 99 cents.  Will pizza dough work to make bread … or is that for pizza and calzones only?

        Sounds like a lot of work kneading the dough :wacko:  …I’m tempted to just drive to Bed Bath and Beyond and buy a cheap bread maker. ;-)

        Yohanan … :stinkerbell:   so if it comes out lopsided and burnt you still expect a picture? :-(

          i haven’t used self rising flour. either unbleached or “best for bread” flour can be used. the bread flour is heavier. pizza dough tastes different than a loaf of bread. french bread recipes are probably the simplest ingrediants

      MFATW was on Begley last night and said that within 2 weeks that food prices were going to skyrocket and that many common items would be unavailable.   He also said that many farmers are not planting crops this year.    When I shopped last weekend I definitely noticed two things – 1) many common items were not available – such as strawberries — this is strawberry season and there were zero at Costco, and 2) prices are significantly higher across the board.         Time to stock up on freeze dried foods?   I’m conflicted as my hope is we’re out of here, but there’s Joseph — should I be storing up?

      And Joseph went out from Pharaoh’s presence and traveled throughout Egypt. During the seven years of abundance the land produced plentifully. Joseph collected all the food produced in those seven years of abundance in Egypt and stored it in the cities. In each city he put the food grown in the fields surrounding it.

        I have always tried to have a couple of weeks worth of stuff after living through a couple of horrendous snow storms and floods in my life but in the last year I have been stocking up a bit extra on some canned meats, dried beans, some frozen meats and paper goods….but not crazy stocking, perhaps a couple months worth, because mostly I feel in my heart that it will not be for us…but as a help and a further witness to those left behind…first to support that we knew ahead of time because of the word and the Spirit speaking Truth to our hearts and secondly that the Lord loves them and wants for them to receive salvation and He provided for them through us.

          I got the impression from MFATW that the spoil will be water and food because of worldwide food and water shortages. He expects something major to happen in the Middle East within the next few weeks.

      we have “emergency food”…problem is the majority is dehydrated and we don’t have natural water sources near here and are in drought, too…so, if we lose our city water for whatever reason, we won’t make it long without God’s intervention supernaturally…plenty of evidence of the good Lord’s ability and willingness to provide when we rely on Him and ask in faith…but there is also like Todd said about Joseph and then there’s also the ants in Proverbs that are wise in preparing…

      so, i figure if you are provided the means to currently, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to stock up if you haven’t already, and on the other hand if you don’t have the means to get extra now, you can rest assured the Lord will provide any and everything you need to do His will if you are wanting to walk each step with Him in trusting obedience- so if that means if He wants you to survive during a certain period of time, then He will get food and drink to you in His way when you need it…

      Just a reminder to those who have fur babies … don’t forget to stock up on their food and special treats. :yes:  I just bought a humongous bag of Signature lamb bites and with the other bags of dog food I already have … I think my dog is set until the rapture or if we are still here early next year.  I noticed they are running low on all dog food at this particular store I was in.  I walked around the store to see what prices have changed since Tuesday … today starts the new sale day of the week for them  and the “fabulous” sale on the frozen TV dinners are now … not 5 boxes for $10.00 … not 4 boxes for $10.00 (which was in effect up till yesterday)… but now … its 3 boxes for $10.00. Wow, what a bargain.  :-(

      I glanced down the commercial bread aisle where they have the wonder bread, hot dog and hamburger rolls, etc. and I see they are getting low.

      The frozen pretzels were on sale for $2.00 a box yippee!  so I picked up a few boxes. Can you tell I’m stalling a little with attempting to bake the homemade bread? :mdrmdr:

      I picked up humongous bags of dried Mediterranean apricots and dried prunes they were both on sale.  Only 2 bag left and I don’t think they will be restocking for a long long time.

      I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the Iceberg Lettuce for $1.99 and the leaves weren’t “brown”.  Or do you suppose they spray painted them green? B-)  I will soon find out tonight while washing if the water turns REALLY dark green.  I feel like I’m having a special “treat” since going without for so long.  They were going like hot cakes … only 7 heads left.  The rest of the veggies are being depleted … so I picked up more cucumbers and the campari tomatoes in plastic containers … they are only $3.00 so I picked up 2 containers and 1 was left.

      Still plenty of candy and soda.

      It was strange to see not a lot of store workers in today.  Not sure if its because there is nothing to restock so perhaps they were told don’t bother to come in? :unsure:

      I wanted to get gas even though the fuel gauge indicates a full tank.  Filled up with the lowest grade  … almost 3 1/2 gallons (3.459) and the price came to $10.00.   :-(

      I’m starting food storage again. We did really well during quarantine because I was very active every day at multiple stores.

        Geri, don’t let the guys get to ya! Bread is easy to make, minus the bread maker. I’ve done it both ways, I actually prefer no bread maker. I found this awesome book decades ago by the Mennonites called “Gathering up the crumbs” and it’s a cookbook full of foods from basics like beans, grains, rice, etc…. I live by this book – you got a loaf pan, you got bread! Biscuits (minus bisquik) are so easy and yummy. Even pretzels are fun and easy! You got this girl ….. :yahoo: :good:

      I went to super Walmart today.  So many shelves becoming empty mainly  in the food aisles.  I picked up 2 more packages of doggie chocolate chip cookies.  Anybody buy these for their fur baby? They look like the real thing and even smell like them.  My dog will go through hoops just to have a cookie. :yes:   I’m tempted to take a tiny bite just to try them.  Years ago I accidentally ate a dog biscuit … they were in a shape of people – milkman, postal worker, paper delivery boy and I was commenting how delicious the “people” crackers were while my mom was bringing in the rest of the grocery bags indoors.  She said these are for you … and handed me the box of animal crackers and said the people crackers are for the dog! :mdrmdr:   After that I learned to read the boxes more carefully.

       

      I wanted to get the bread yeast the 3/pack there is only $1.20 whereas the other local stores are selling the same exact brand for $3.29 which is highway robbery. So glad I held off.  Got a bag of corn meal (only 4 bags left) and 2 jars of sesame seeds.  My thoughts are on that homemade braided loaf bread … I do want to try it … when I have more ((energy)).  B-)

      I forgot to get the 9 V batteries at Walmart.  I need 1 more … then I will have enough in case the smoke alarm batteries start chirping.  Nothings worse than no batteries on hand.  Some of the local stores and hardware places either ran out or running low but charging a lot for what they do have.

      I filled up at the gas station even though I only needed 2 1/2 gallons.  Many people in line waiting and they were filling not only their tanks but had a few plastic containers.  I just wonder when they are going to put up the signs … no more gas?

      That reminds me of the time we went to Hershey PA (around 1974) and my mom bought a bar of soap that looked like chocolate. My kid sister didn’t know any better. I came out of the bathroom in tears I was laughing so hard! There was that bar of soap with a bite taken out of it. She never made that mistake again! Lol

        Oh your poor sister. :mdrmdr:   That is so cool with the Hershey soap!  I was at the Hershey, PA store in 2002 … I wish I saw the soap … I would have bought a whole bunch.  I still have this denim shirt.  It faded over time but I still get compliments if I wear it.

         

        Well you’re sister would have loved my Mickey Mouse bathroom … I used to keep Mickey lollipops and Disney chocolates in 2 containers on the sink counter.  My nieces and nephews gladly went up another flight of stairs to use THAT bathroom … here 2 other bathrooms were free on the main floor but they REALLY wanted the candy.  The first year I had them on display their parents couldn’t understand why their kids kept saying “they have to go to the bathroom again.” :mdrmdr:

        I had a co-worker who was craving chocolate and her sister played a dirty trick by giving her a couple of ex-lax chocolate bars.  The funny thing was it never made her go to the bathroom … so she kept giving her more and nothing happened.  So the trick backfired and then their mom went looking for them and they were all gone and the big sister got in trouble. :mdrmdr:

        I might have to buy a very small bag of carob chips … hey, if I don’t like them I know my dog will eat them. B-)

      I was just at this one grocery store in town …

      I wanted to redeem the Orange Crush soda bottles and their return machine said “store doesn’t carry this brand” when I bought the soda directly from this store.  I asked the worker at the courtesy desk if they can fix their bottle machine to accept the Orange Crush and was told sorry we can’t fix it.

      This same store is also putting sale prices on items but its not ringing up the sale but the receipt slip will put the S next to the item to indicate you got the sale price. :wacko:   For instance … a 4 pack of Duracell 9V batteries last week were listed as $5.99 but it rung up $10.99 and the original price was $6.99.  Go figure. :scratch:   I caught that one right away and the cashier had to do an override and made the adjustment … then today the container of hot house tomatoes should be on sale for $3.99 but it rang up $6.99 so I told them to please remove the item … I’m not that desperate for tomatoes.

      Their overprice corn-on-the-cob is just sitting there “on sale” 5 ears for $6.99 … wow some “sale” and they got this big sign NO SHUCKING THE CORN!  Please keep your 6 ft safe distance.   No problem there … since nobody is buying their “sale” corn.

      The California blueberries were marked down to $2.50 a container but I could see fungus mold forming … no thanks.

      They are almost out of milk … no 1/2 gallons or pints … the case is empty except for the gallon size … only 4 bottles left … this is pitiful since I live in dairyland.  Makes you wonder if they slaughtered the cows? :scratch:

      And I wanted whip cream in the spray can but they got it jacked up to $5.99! :negative:

       

      Drove over to the other grocery store in town was able to get the 1 pint of milk and a large can of spray whip cream was $2.50 :yahoo:

      True prices are creeping up everywhere and on everything. My hubby is a bi-vocational pastor, meaning he has a second job, mostly because since COVID we’ve lost 50% of the congregation to death or illness or fear! He just took over this church right before the planned-demic occurred. :unsure: Anyway, I digress, his other job is selling solar, it was discovered that the electric companies have been given approval from our fake government  authorities to raise rates 6.4% annually or more often if demand shifts higher. That’s a hike —- I have solar and feed the grid, so my rates never go up but I feel for folks. Water is also a utility that has automatic increases, wish I had a well :-(

      I have slowly been building our supply up from MyPatriot and Ready Wise … but rice, oatmeal, beans works well. Tuna and spam will suffice too. Don’t forget the kitty liter, helps if you have to resort to a lug-a-ble loo! Keep a 5 gallon bucket! You should have at least a 10 gallon container for each person in your household and that’s just for starters. Don’t forget the kerosene lanterns either … I could go on …. maybe should start a thread on survival … I followed Joseph’s plan to prepare, if not for me (praying rapture), then for those left to find. We’ve had this discussion before or am I doing a dejavu thing? :calvin

          Looking up! Thank you and ditto on letting me know how we can pray for you, as you too continue to serve. The saddest thing for my husband and myself has been to watch the growing coldness of hearts. We have been actively serving in full time ministry (pastorate or missionary) for greater than 30 yrs, teaching and preaching (I teach only :mdrmdr: although my kids may disagree :mdrmdr: ), yet even as the coldness has been growing, 2020 put the dividing lines up front and center. Continue to pray, we have such a heart to reach others and the doors just keep slamming shut …. it looks like we will again bury yet another church. God allowed us to gift our last church to a vibrant growing ministry and we are working to merge this one with another vibrant work, it puts my husband out of a job but he feels the need to meet kingdom needs more than his … keep him in prayer for wisdom and strength. He has had opportunity with his solar job to pray with those he meets and discuss Christ, while I have maintained my ability to speak about Christ to those I work with in the hospital because of the level of administration God placed me. We thank him for the opportunity to serve! May God continue to grant you strength to persevere for His glory! Bring them in! :prayer-hands:

            My cry to the Lord is for wisdom to pastor in the current climate, and faithfulness to obey no matter what. I need great grace for both! Thank you so very much for your prayers.

            Last week I preached from 2 Timothy 3 – “In the last days perilous times will come” and was very pleasantly surprised at the positive response. Praise the Lord!

            Many, many blessings! :prayer-hands: :bible

              Absolutely! Canada (as Arthur can speak too) is already out of control with arrests of pastors. We pray, watch, and seek wisdom! God’s Will be done … 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal”

              2 Timothy 3 is indeed an eye opener and predictive of what has gone on thru the church age and still going on for the “free world”. The Corinthian verse has taken on new meaning for me now ….. :prayer-hands:

              Our heavenly home is going to be totally awesome! My granddaughter and I are going planet hopping after a few 1000 years, she’s nine and my 10th grandchild, we’re very close and she asks me often if we are going to fly this month, I just smile and say, possible :prayer-hands:

                Tammie, I pray often for my brothers and sisters in Canada. Now we will add you to our regular prayers in our family. Your faithfulness and that of other saints in Canada is inspiring to your neighbors to the south.

                  No, sorry you misunderstood, I’m not in Canada….I’m a true Southern Belle :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr: Not according to my brothers! :mdrmdr:

                  I have traveled to almost every state in the union and to about 7 countries, excluding Canada (passed through on my way to Alaska once).

                  Arthur is from Canada :good:

        Aren’t we all! My brain needs a data dump periodically, it’s so crazy the amount of dis-information and information now days, certainly speaks to the verse about the growing knowledge ….

        Daniel 12:4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

        I Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,”

        And time … it appears to be at warp speed, today started and now it’s ending and not sure where it went! :mdrmdr:

      Bumping …

      After watching Lisa’s (watchwoman65) latest youtube about there will be even less truck drivers working due to the covid mandate. The far and few drivers rather quit vs. get the jab.  So the food / supply shortages are only going to get much worse.

      With that in mind … I went to 2 grocery stores to stock up more.  Saw a sign in town “get your covid shots here” arrow pointed to a mini mall store. First time I saw a sign advertising it on the Main Street.  It disturbed me because I fear the next sign will say … no vaxx/no entry.  Lots of out-of-staters here sight seeing and walking around with their masks on.  They are oblivious of dangers ahead … There is no panic yet in the stores … shoppers think seeing empty shelves are now “normal” living. Round 2 looks to be in full force … the toilet paper aisle is almost completely empty … paper towels will follow in about 2 – 3 more days.  They did restock the candy, chips, soda, beer and ice cream aisles.  I reckon they know what’s priority in keeping people happy. :mdrmdr:   But just limited supplies or completely out everywhere else.  One store is missing a lot of veggies. All I wanted were cucumbers.  Drove to the other store and had to ask the guy in produce if they have any and if so I would like 3.  He came out of the back room with a grin on his face … he said good news as he is waving the cucumbers in the air …the shipment box arrived this morning and handed me my request order.  I felt like I was bartering / begging for the food.  I got the last package of ground beef that was $6.00 … remaining 4 packages on display were over $9.00. :wacko:

      Glad to be back home … wishing to be in our eternal home soon.

      Yesterday I posted that video with J.T. saying Canadians basically have 4 – 8 weeks to comply or else.

      Well I just got done watching a Roy Potter video saying the people he talks to are saying the same thing (4 – 8 weeks) before the food shortages really get bad.

      My wife stopped by McD’s this morning on the way back home to grab us Egg McMuffins.   Our local area McD’s have been out of english muffins for a few days the person said.   I went to the deli at the store a few days ago to pick up a few chicken tenders – the clerk said they didn’t have any chicken tenders and had not had any for almost a week.   We have a laser engraving business – I can’t get water bottles as they’re all sitting on ships off LA or stuck in China.    While I knew there were going to be shortages — its smacking me in the face now and I’m seeing it in more that one location / industry.   Time to make sure the bunker is stocked and ready to go.

        Hey Todd … I think they shipped all the English Muffins over to the Northeast. B-)   One grocery store had a sale last week buy one pack get 2 packages FREE. :wacko:   And they STILL have an over abundance today on their display … they can’t get rid of them.   Same with the bagels.

        UGH … ever since my next door neighbor asked me a few days ago if I’m getting my booster shot and I said no … she is giving me the evil eye and quickly putting on a face mask any time I’m outdoors.  She is treating me like I’m uncleaned with leprosy.  I got a feeling if she ever gets covid she will blame me too ….  I really want out of this crazy insane world.

      After the Rapture those left behind will be the spiritual lepers!

      I am still bewildered at the level and scope of those deceived!

      And their pride will keep them as such throughout eternity!

        What gets me … she is triple dog vaxx now … so if she trusts the vaxx soooo much why is she afraid of the unvaxx?   Just goes to show she is soooo brainwashed.

        She is in her early 70’s … just think about the fear  she is going to have when they crash the stock market and her bank account gets wiped out and the famine and earthquakes and 100 lb hailstones and the ….

        She told me she was concerned about the lilac bush she bought this past spring … it died and after checking with the nursery … she was happy to hear she can return it next year for another one.  What she is going to do when the 2 witnesses hold back the rain for 3 1/2 years?  Sad how the unsaved have their eyes only focused on the cares of this world that is passing away and not the eternal side.

        All I can do now is leave Bible Tracts out on tables and in the food cabinets and then when whoever breaks in … they will not only have a nice supply of food and water but hopefully they will read the Tracts.  Of course, I doubt she will ever break in … she is too scared my place is “germie”.

      So I had to buy a bunch of vitamins and teas to help my mom get over the Graphene poisoning she is experiencing and man did that ring up to 150.00 fast. Part of it was because I had to buy it local and get either dissolvable or chewables as her throat was extremely sore. Had to tap into the FLCCC to get a telehealth appointment from American Frontline MD to get an RX for Ivermectin for her, me, and my hubby and in less than 24 hrs spent yet another 600.00. So, we need it, yes, but the pricing is unbelievable. They were all very nice and helpful but it ain’t cheap. :unsure:

      I know of a friend in her 80’s who had covid badly afew months ago. Was in the hospital for a week and a half at least. She wanted Ivermectin recently but no one would sell it to her. She was the one who led a few of us to an online source. She’s a head-strong gal and since she couldn’t find it locally this time, she’s taking what is used for farm animals. She’s still living!

      I see no harm in storing up – it is not from fear, but practicality. Not hoarding and taking more than we need that leaves other with less, but just purchasing a little extra each time to be sure family needs are met. The Lord will take care of the rest.

      We don’t so much have natural catastrophe’s that we are facing, but daily we are facing man made famine and withholding of necessities. So I believe it’s good to furnish a household supply while we are still able.

      I gave hubby Ivermection horse paste from Tractor Supply in Jan when he had Covid.

      I did find 12mg tablets on line at All Day Chemist.com so put that in my supplies.  It took awhile for overseas shipping and they wanted a Dr name.  So I gave them a name from years ago.

        I was wondering about that!  We got a few Tractor Supply stores up here.  They also got the Ivermectin for sheep and it will treat dogs also for heart worms.  Is this the same stuff that will treat horses?  Or do we need the horse  Ivermection paste?  And which is better the paste or the pills?

        Didn’t they say dogs can get covid and how can that be when they are given heart worm pills every month? :mdrmdr:

        Smart thinking with using a doctor’s name from years ago. :mdrmdr:

          Geri, You can get Bimectin paste and use it dermatological – horse, sheep, cattle typically same dose. Fairly inexpensive about 9.00 a tube on line or at tractor supply. Good to have a bit at home among your emergency kit.  Getting the link to the compounding pharmacy was a great help.

      geri- over 9 dollars for ground beef??!!! was it only one pound??!!  i was getting nervous that walmart here had gone up this week to $6.49 a pound….wishing we’d gone ahead and bought the made in china freezer when we had a chance & stocked up on meat…but then again, electricity prob won’t be around at some point in the not so distant future…

      as far as truck drivers go- my hubby is one and he and many others will not take the shots even if get fired- they are as isolated as you can get most of the time…not to mention American citizens…ridiculous…the whole world has gone nutz

      we’d talked about making another walmart run this wkend, but ya gotta draw the line somewhere…tues it already had an almost empty tp aisle- cool thing was the ones left were the kind we prefer!  nice to have been so spoiled that we have such things as tp preferences…ok..i had to erase multiple things i just typed…my humor was headed in the 3 rd grade boy direction…

        I only get my ground beef from this one local store because they sell “Certified Angus Beef” and they apply those stickers on the packages so you know ahead of time what you’re getting.  I don’t get sick on their ground beef.  My stomach can’t tolerate the  “pink slime” additive that the other stores are notorious for putting inside their ground beef.  Nor can I eat @ McD’s  :negative:

        The package I just bought was 80% lean beef/20% fat hence the price was cheaper  $5.45 x 1.10 lb = $6.00

        The others packages were either  90% lean beef/10% fat or 85% lean beef /15% fat (I prefer this ratio because anything leaner the burgers are dried out and not juicy) but the price just jumped up to $8.18 x 1.10 lb = $9.00. :wacko:

        Its best that you don’t stock up on frozen foods unless you have a generator.  From the latest prophecy news update … they plan on having power outages (like what happened to Houston) across the United States … and there will be a shortage of oil fuel for the furnaces.  Its going to be a cold and long winter for the left behind.  Praying we are out of here soon!

      i just ordered some random canned meats from walmart- ran out of time when there last time (over 30 minute drive) and only got extra can chicken & a little more tuna- don’t like getting cans delivered cuz had can dog food mailed from other places and they were dented, but i do not want to go back in person anytime real soon…we have powdered emerg food and beans & rice and all, just seemed we needed a little more fatty bad canned spam and corned beef type stuff…ugh…hope it’s all just for someone (who we do not know yet) that will be saved after rapture thru God’s Word- we have plenty of in writing in our house after we are raptured…i do not feel prepared to go from spoiled to no electricity or income or food at store or running water or whatever…but God knows the future and He knows we need Him every step of the way no matter what it holds…i do trust Him…He is same God who multiplied the oil supply and the fishes and loaves…same God that heals, teaches, provides, leads & guides yesterday, today and tomorrow

        Don’t forget the jars of peanut butter and jelly on the crackers.  This is my go to staple food when the power goes off.

        Yep it won’t be pleasant if the power is out for long periods of time.  I got a radon fan that won’t work and then I would eventually smell the toxic fumes. They claim you can’t smell it but I can and it bothers me.  So my back-up plan would be to pack up what I need and drive over to my brother’s vacation house.  He has a wood burning fireplace so I could at least heat up soups, etc. by the fire and stay warm.  Let’s hope it never gets to that situation. I’m trusting its business as usual when the rapture happens.

      We move into our camper tomorrow on our property, while the house is renovated from the walls. So if the power goes out, I can just make a fire in the pit and cook in my lodge pot hanging over the open fire and then go to bed with the setting sun and wake with the chickens :mdrmdr:  A cold shower and who needs electricity anyway :mdrmdr:

      Naw that would be a missed item …. Things will be crazy, specially once the rapture occurs, but much of this is just the crazy lies from the media to get people all crazy and scarred. Gives us opportunity to share the peace of God that surpasses all understanding :prayer-hands: :flyup:
