The Parties Over Better Be Ready
I finished up my morning chores that always pile up when I work a couple of 12 hour shifts in a row. Cleaned out the wood furnace, got the fire going good again, checked on the feeders that type of stuff.
This time it's a little more time sensitive since we had a beautiful 60 degree day yesterday while I was trapped at work but now the clouds have come in and it's not suppose to get above the mid thirties today. However Starting tomorrow the cold returns and Sunday we are suppose to be in single digits.
Low single digits at that.
What did I discover hanging out in the barn now? Yep another stray cat. All black and obviously someone's pet up until just recently since he comes readily to any human when he hears or sees one, meowing the entire way complaining about his current predicament. I would guess maybe a year old tops.
The chickens are not being very nice to him and chase him around a bit and he has not lost his fear of the great outdoors yet either since he won't leave the barn. My guess is someone took him from their home and dropped him in the driveway or the roadside right outside and he ran for the first cover he could find. Our barn. Not the first time I have seen that scenario play out.
We had a pretty good run going almost two years now without a new stray cat showing up but it looks like that party is now over. Judging by the other indicators I been reading about and seeing with my own eyes I would say we are once again on the brink of an uncontrolled fall down another stairstep of collapse.
A trip through Zerohedge will show Baltic Dry way down, Rail shipping down, more bond downgrades, stocks collapsing all over, retail sales at their lowest and the new addition this time around.... Major funds and brokerages actually calling openly for a reset and imminent depression.
All the above and now my personal very own Small-Hold economic indicator of more strays. Looks like a perfect storm is brewing.
Not that we haven't seen this scenario build over and over the last seven years. Perhaps the central banks can manipulate us out of this crisis one more time or perhaps they are indeed all out of bullets. No way we will know for sure until it either happens or the green arrows start to climb on the charts. Just like many have predicted though these dips and crisis periods are becoming more frequent and spaced closer together as time goes by.
It's only a matter of when at this point not if.
I hope we are all prepared and ready!!!
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
