Welcome to the blog, Colorado Preppers. Prepping doesn't mean we think the apocolypse is coming or the earth will blow up. It simply means that we are preparing for any eventuality that may strike here in Colorado (USA) ... from swine/bird flu to blizzards to global financial collapse to loss of income and more. // Come learn with us about things like water purifying and collecting, inventory checks and more.

EARTHQUAKE IN COLORADO

I'm kinda amazed. Awoke to the news this morning that there was an earthquake last night in Colorado, in the Trinidad area, which is near the southern border of this state. Preliminary magnitude of 5.3, worst in 44 years.

No, I didn't feel it, but my livestock are kinda jumpy this morning.

Did I really give consideration to preparing an earthquake bag? Nope. But I will now.  Will you?

It gives new meaning to the word Prepper, eh? :-)

Here's another interesting thought I got onto this morning after I heard about the earthquake and started thinking about what I would need for that situation. In all of our attempts to prep for things have we also thought about prepping for the scenario "what if nothing happens and we live to be a ripe old age and retire"?

Good point.

I've thought about it but never wrote about it. I try to live my life as if something and nothing will happen.

Thanks, Sumac! Wanna write about it sometime?
