Welcome to Preppers Movement and thanks for stopping by. I hope to supply you with as much information as I can to help you in getting prepared.
The Prepper Movement is gaining momentum. My prepper introduction officially started for me the day my husband and I had to do a bucket brigade after Hurricane Irene hit our town. The electricity was out so our sump pump couldn’t work and so that morning at 7:30am I heard the one thing I didn’t want to hear… the water alarm box that I had on the floor in the basement. Down I ran to see how bad it was. The rain was pouring like crazy outside and when the ground was finally saturated it starting seeping in first through the corners where the downspouts are located outside and then finally it started seeping in from cracks in the cement floor. We waited to see if the electricity was going to come on, but later on about 9:30 we realized that wasn’t going to happen anytime soon so as the water started creeping slowly up the blocks that the furnace and the water heater stood on and so we had to do something. And so for the next 4 hours we had a bucket brigade dumping the water out into the backyard. Somehow we managed a pace that kept the water from reaching the 2 units and after the 4th hour as my cursing started getting more vocal (where my husband couldn’t hear me) my prayers were finally answered and at 1:30 the lights came back on! On went the sump pump and the worst of the water was gone in a short time, but of course the mess left behind took a few weeks to fully clean up. After that we got our first generator… and our Prepper journey started. I want to be prepared and I know that if you have found this website that you also want to be prepared.
