I received the following email late last week:
Ok, this might sound bizarre….
My cousin is in a spiritual group and has heard from many other spiritual sources that “water” is coming to Hawaii on Tuesday. She’s concerned because it’s coming from a variety of sources and all say the same day.
I know this might sound “out there” and she and I hope she’s wrong!
She just wanted to let me know to have your stash of water, tank full of gas, etc.
There’s a store called Be Ready if you think you need anything.
Just wanted to let you know to stock up this weekend. If it doesn’t happen, can always just use the stuff in time.
I would feel like crap if she told me this, it happened and I didn’t tell anyone.
If you think it’s nuts, don’t pass it on. I’m only telling you guys so no one else will think I’m nuts.
Of course I didn’t include the person’s name and I took out the link to the Be Ready shop because I don’t want it to seem like all this was just a big advertisement hoax.
When we were talking about this at work – the word “water” automatically made us think: Tsunami. Could be flooding, but there isn’t any heavy rain in the forecast. Nor is there a hurricane nearby.
But if something was to happen – are you prepared to go, say, 1 week without electricity? That means no Internet too! Actually, with a smart phone – provided the cell towers are still working – we can get internet. What? How you going to charge your smart phone? From the car! No need drive anywhere. Just charge it from in the car – making sure to run the car every so often to keep the battery charged up. That way you can keep up with the MLC blog!
Let’s see… we have a couple/few gallons of distilled water. About 1/4 tank of propane. A couple bottles of butane. No more charcoal though for when we run out of propane and butane. I guess I’m not that prepared…
Are you prepared in case something happens on Tuesday? Or on 12/21/12 as some predict?
I’m going to remain positive and send good vibes so nothing happens by getting my costume ready for this weekends DISGUISE gig at C’est Si Bon!
