Late night mews, new year nebula-skipping Kitkats... wow, a hellaciously bitter cold start to the day with strong and constant winds... the tree branches were moving like crazy until around sunset... and the temps are supposed to fall to frigid again tonight... yeah, tomorrow doesn't look good either... so, sighs... 'cause that means the Kougaress has to expend extra energy and time taking care of everything... thus, a loss of writing time... ~another large sigh~
Stay warm and cozy-cuddled, darling kittens, to ride out this superstorm of cold. And remember, this Big Cat loves ya!

(continued from Monday’s blog)
At first it looked like Serenity might just get her man/ride home. Competing bids were scattered and half-hearted. She got the impression this bachelor might not be too popular with the crowd.
Why not? He was handsome enough to turn a girl’s head. Not a shorty, not too tall. His dark face appeared blemish-free. He didn’t look too thrilled to be up on stage, like he’d only entered the auction on a bet and now regretted it. His reluctance might have communicated itself to the women, accounting for the spotty bids.

Survival Basics: Water and Water Storage

During a recent book giveaway, the question asked was “What piece of prepping gear is at the top of your bucket list?” Needless to say, I was more than a little bit surprised to find that the top response was water storage, water filters, and water purification equipment.
While having the gear is nice, anyone interested in preparedness also needs to have a basic understanding of the concepts behind water and water storage. Where to find, store, purify, and filter water are all questions that need to be asked, answered, and periodically reviewed.
