5 Cold-Killing Spices Hiding In Your Kitchen Cabinet

5 Cold-Killing Spices Hiding In Your Kitchen Cabinet

Image source: Pixabay.com

As winter blasts the U.S., the local pharmacy is dispensing various chemical cocktails aimed at curbing the symptoms associated with the common cold and seasonal flu virus. The pharmaceutical companies certainly benefit during the cold winter months, but their relief is costly — and not guaranteed. In fact, some medications often produce side-effects that are just as bad or worse than the original symptoms.

So, what natural options are available? The answer may be as simple as a glance in your spice cabinet.

Good nutrition is essential for a healthy life. As the adage states, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” A well-thought-out diet, full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, will bolster your immune system. Whether sprinkled on as a garnish, used to create a flavorful broth or sauce, or even steeped in a tea, this list of cold- and flu-fighting spices can keep you healthy and happy this winter.

1. Turmeric

Dress up your farm-fresh eggs, create a tangy dip, or spice up a side of rice with a dash of turmeric. Produced from the roasted rhizomes of the turmeric plant, turmeric powder stimulates the immune system, reduces inflammation, balances blood sugar levels and aids the digestive system, all of which are important aspects of fighting off the common cold or seasonal flu.

2. Clove, nutmeg and cinnamon

This trio is most often associated with baking fall and winter “goodies,” and with warm, soothing drinks; however, they also work well together to aid the body in resisting infectious illnesses prevalent during the holiday season. These spices are antibacterial, antiviral, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agents. The addition of nutmeg also has the added benefit of being an anti-depressant, which is helpful to calm the wintertime blues and relieve insomnia, although caution should be used by only including small amounts of nutmeg to any recipe.

3. Ginger

Although ginger is used with the popular fall spices listed above, it also works to aid the digestive tract — relieving nausea, reducing bloating and gas, and overall working to relax the digestive tract to promote healing. Ginger also provides extra support for the immune system and further relieves inflammation due to irritation or infection.

4. Oregano

Not to be limited to Italian dishes, oregano can be sprinkled on eggs, salads and meats, enhancing your immune system by acting as a powerful antioxidant. It contains multiple vitamins and minerals, giving it helpful antibacterial and antiviral properties. Oregano also provides relief from inflammation, particularly in the upper respiratory tract, which is more vulnerable due to the drier air found in the colder climates.

5. Thyme

Well known in ancient times for its medicinal properties, thyme is most effective against respiratory infections and intestinal distress. It boosts liver function, increases immune function and clears the sinuses — the breeding ground of many respiratory infections.

For many of us, these spices are staples in our cabinet, only to be pulled out for special recipes and not considered based on their medicinal properties. Yet by incorporating them into our regular diets, we can increase our chances of staying healthy during the winter months.

Cold Weather Preparations

Guessing what the weather will be is not an option. Based on the forecast it is time for cold weather preparations. We have mentioned before how we get weather reports and yet again we are preparing for another arctic blast.

picture of Kenwood TM 281 tuned to weather radioThe reality is we have many different radios that we can listen to NOAA weather forecasts. One of the best features is that it is your local area and at your time. During our routine listening we heard about the weather forecast for this weekend. Basically it boils down for two days of below normal weather temperatures during the middle of winter. Then we jump back up to above average temperatures for two days before it flips back.

That is the joy of living in the south. The fronts tends to sink and climb and drastic weather changes are frequent. The cold weather preparations often involves ice storms due to the constantly changing precipitation line between frozen and rain.

In this case we are not expecting frozen precipitation, but you better believe we will be prepared for it. One thing we will certainly have to do is button down the livestock. They will need fresh water that is not frozen as the overnight low will get down to around 18° Fahrenheit.

The cold weather preparation does not include any babies this time, however with the wind expected due to the rapid weather changes we will need to secure a lot of the things that can be blown around. Since it is the Christmas season yard decorations are a consideration.

By Kristina Pydynowski – AccuWeather

The coldest and most far-reaching arctic blast so far this season will spread across the majority of the contiguous United States next week.

Frigid air from the depths of the Arctic will plunge into the United States as the jet stream (a fast-river of air along which storms travel) drops southward.

The coldest days of next week will yield highs and lows of generally 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit below normal from the Northwest and Rockies to the Gulf and East coasts.

The Man Who’s Been Right 6 Of 7 Years Just Predicted A ‘Colder-Than-Normal’ Winter

Click here to view the original post.

The Man Who's Been Right 6 of 7 Years Just Predicted A ‘Colder-Than-Normal’ WinterResidents of the Northeast and Midwest can expect a very rough winter with extreme cold temperatures and lots of snow, according to climatologist Judah L. Cohen, whose unconventional model of forecasting is well-known in the meteorological world.

The Man Who's Been Right 6 of 7 Years Just Predicted A ‘Colder-Than-Normal’ Winter

Image source: Pixabay.com

Cohen theorizes that an October that features heavy snow in Eurasia is a predictor of a rough winter for the Eastern U.S., The Washington Post reported. Other forecasters look to temperatures in the Pacific Ocean for long-term winter forecasts.

Get Free Electricity — And Never Be Without Power!

“I would say that the predictors that we follow are strongly indicating a colder-than-normal winter,” Cohen, of the Atmospheric and Environmental Research, wrote in an email to The Post.

This year the “advance of snow cover in Eurasia (south of 60 degrees north latitude) was the fastest on record going back to 1998” – an indicator of a brutal snow in the Eastern U.S., he said. The snow coverage was the fourth highest on record.

“I think the most impressive cold will be across Eurasia,” Cohens aid. “But here in the U.S., extensive Eurasian snow cover favors colder-than-normal temperatures in the Eastern U.S. more than it does in the Western U.S.”

The meteorological community remains skeptical to Cohen’s forecast, but he says his forecasting for the U.S. has been correct in six of the past seven years.

“That is an impressive track record for climate prediction,” he said. “But I am happy for the community to be skeptical of our ideas and create a void that I am willing to fill.”

Survival 101: How To Forecast Tomorrow’s Weather … Without The Weather Channel

Survival 101: How To Forecast Tomorrow’s Weather … Without The Weather Channel

Image source: Pixabay.com

When you left the Jeep by the trail, and began heading down the oak leaf-covered footpath that winds its way up the mountain ridge, you felt certain about today’s weather. You had enjoyed a gorgeous night of tenting under the stars and a delicious breakfast, but then it hits you: the realization that the sky seems to be turning darker by the hour.

Before long, you’re getting the distinct impression that you might have just hiked 16 miles into the woods, only to shiver in the rain, and may even be forced to head home in defeat. And then there’s always the possibility that this might just be … well … a bunch of rainless clouds.

This is going to be one tough call to make.

And even if you had brought your smartphone with you, and not left it in the Jeep, it wouldn’t have done much good. There are no smartphone towers around here, and technology isn’t really going to help you in this situation.

Many have suggested that a hiker’s barometer/thermometer watch could provide data on the current situation, but unfortunately, most in the “affordable range” tend not to work effectively. Besides, you’d also have to know how to interpret this data, and it’s not even going to offer near the accuracy that you’d get from two important pieces of gear — items that you had with you all along: your eyes and your brain.

The Survival Water Filter That Fits In Your POCKET!

Your eyes can see the data, and your brain can do a darn good job of interpreting it. So, here are just a few of the basics on reading the clouds for when you have just as much need for a smartphone in the woods today, as just another text from the boss.

Clouds You Should Know

To start off, here’s a quick little guide on how to identify the clouds overhead, along with descriptions on what they mean:

Fair Weather Clouds

Cumulus. Image source: Pixabay.com

Cumulus.

Cumulus Fair weather (unless closely clumped together, which could signal a little rain on the way). They generally look a bit like floating cotton balls.

Cirrocumulus. Image source: Pixabay.com

Cirocumulus.

Cirocumulus Looks like a very thin high-altitude blanket, most likely to dissipate into clear blue sky. This could also foretell of a massive hurricane-like storm system approaching within days in extreme cases.

Cirrus. Image source: Pixabay.com

Cirrus.

Possible Warning Clouds

Cirrus High-altitude wisps, indicating a possible major weather change and storms within 24-48 hours. Especially pay attention if cirrus clouds appear in a wavy pattern.

Cirrostratus. Image source: Pixabay.com

Cirrostratus.

Cirrostratus Cirrus clouds accumulate and thicken, possibly warning of rain or snow on the way.

Altostratus. Image source: Wikimedia

Altostratus.

AltostratusThese create a thick grey veil over the sun, meaning the rain is soon to come.

Storm Clouds

Nimbostratus. Image source: Wikimedia.

Nimbostratus.

Nimbostratus Low level thick, wet wisps, meaning it’s probably not going to clear up anytime soon.

Cumulonimbus. Image source: Pixabay.com

Cumulonimbus.

CumulonimbusThese are your thunderstorm clouds. You’d better hunker down and take cover immediately.

Storm Clouds Descend

One important thing to pay attention to is how the weather is progressing. With the exception of certain regions with their own unique weather phenomena, most storm systems will move over the area, starting with high-altitude cirrus patterns and ending with low-altitude nimbostratus formations. In most cases, it progresses like this:

  1. Cirrus
  2. Cirrostratus
  3. Altostratus
  4. Stratus
  5. Nimbostratus

However, in the event that your camp is directly in the path of a squall line, then this progression will happen almost rapidly enough to completely miss, and it will likely be accompanied with billowing, towering cumulonimbus formations. Here’s a great tutorial video that explains exactly what I’m talking about:

Story continues below video

 

Nevertheless, there’s a very good chance that both scenarios will be preceded by those high-altitude wispy cirrus clouds, so always pay closer attention to the sky when they show up.

Warm Front. Cold Front.

Warm and cold fronts tend to have very distinct attributes that will reveal themselves to you in the sky without your needing those squiggly lines on the Doppler map. You can usually tell the two apart, using these criteria …

Warm Front – Weather generally changes in a more gradual, more even manner, and is usually accompanied by lighter precipitation that lasts for longer periods of time. It’s also usually preceding a low-pressure zone. To give you an illustration, it’s just like in a super-hot cup of coffee: the half-and-half tends to stir itself if you let it sit, and the same goes for warm fronts.

Cold Front – Weather generally changes in a rapid and often chaotic manner, and these are known for stressing out sailors and sea captains. Because cold air is denser than hot air, cold fronts will form a wall, which then churns and causes rapid convection, and thunderheads shortly thereafter. Much like a weather explosion, these systems tend to precede a high-pressure zone, quickly condensing the water vapor in its path … and becoming heavy rains, heavy wind, and other various storm nasties.

Thus, if the weather seems to take days to change from blue to grey, then you’re probably looking at days of rain due to an inbound warm front.

But if the weather goes from blue to terrifying in 90 minutes, then you’ll only have to whiteknuckle that tarp for about 15 insane minutes of nature’s fury.

Weather Patterns You Can Basically Bank on

When temperatures change rapidly, or there’s a sudden increase in wind speed and/or direction, then it’s time to keep an eye on the sky. Depending on your region, of course, weather systems generally roll in from the west or southwest. So if you’ve got a hunch that the weather may be changing, then turn your eye where the sun sets, because that’s where your trouble’s going to originate.

Obviously, there’s still plenty else to learn about reading the clouds, but this should at least get you started. As for another more obvious fact, if the weatherman says you should stay indoors, then folks: Please stay indoors. Your eyes may be 20/20, but their eyes are seeing things from orbit, and, well, bad storms kill people.

Keep an Eye on Extreme Weather With the Storm App

Click here to view the original post.

storm appI don’t think it’s odd at all that I have multiple weather apps on my phone or that one of my favorite gifts ever was an indoor/outdoor thermometer.  I’m a total weather junkie. I track rainfall amounts and brag to our relatives in Phoenix when our daily amount of precipitation exceeds their annual rainfall!

When I learned about a new severe weather app, I figured it was a sign from heaven and I downloaded it immediately. Storm by Weather Underground is the ultimate weather app and lives up to its claim, “The best app for the worst weather.”

Storm came in handy yesterday when my 14 year old son was set to go kayaking with his buddy. He was ready with extra water, sunblock, a snack, and a hat – and then Mom checked her Storm app. What I saw on the high resolution radar was pretty ugly. Splotches of pink, red, and orange indicated that a line of severe weather was headed our way and approaching quickly. I could tell from the high resolution radar that my son would be well out on the river when the storm hit and far from help.

I had to break the news to him that I was putting the kibosh on the kayak trip and just a short time later, when the massive storm hit, he and his friend were ensconced in our family room with hot pizza. Storm’s advance storm tracking saved the day.

IMG_0040In our neck of the woods, we take weather pretty seriously. Just this year, rainfall in Texas has hit record amounts in many areas. Homes have been flooded, businesses permanently destroyed, and as much as I enjoy my life as an amateur meteorologist, weather can get pretty serious, quickly. It’s important to stay ahead of the storm so you can prepare for it.

The Storm app has a number of features you’ll be impressed with. It’s designed to track extreme weather, in particular, so if you live in tornado or hurricane country or have to deal with any type of storms, you’ll appreciate these:

  • Global Radar, which accesses data from the national network of NEXRAD radar sites.
  • Lightning View, which tracks lightning strikes within 100 miles around (Continental U.S. only)
  • A detailed analysis of impending storms – you know where they’re coming from and where they’re headed.
  • A customizable map screen with highest resolution radar
  • “Information galore,” according to my husband.

Storm provides weather information and data at levels suitable for everyone. If all you really want to know is, “Should I wear a jacket or take an umbrella today?” Storm has you covered with daily and hourly forecasts. But if you’re a weather junkie like me, you can delve deeply into extensive charts that detail things like cloud cover, dewpoint, and “feels like” temperatures.

With the occasional tornado warning, I’ll be able to get storm tracks, radar, and up to the minute watches and warnings.

This is the most detailed weather app I’ve ever used.

I have it downloaded on my Android phone as well as on my mini iPad. I love having massive amounts of weather info handy on my smartphone, but I have to admit, the experience on my larger mini iPad is glorious. Check out this screenshot:storm app

Learn all about Storm here and enjoy their glorious weather photography on Instagram.

Weather junkies, rejoice! And now go download Storm!

Downpours will persist over flood-ravaged areas of Louisiana through the middle of the week.

“A front will stall out near the Gulf Coast, leading to a couple of unsettled days across the region,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Frank Strait said.

The enhanced rainfall will only aggravate the situation in flood-ravaged Louisiana.

“The ongoing downpours will not only hinder rescue, recovery and cleanup efforts but could also lead to additional incidents of flooding,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

28 Pieces of Weather Wisdom From the Pioneer Days

Click here to view the original post.

pioneer weather wisdomThis year when I was getting ready to plant my spring garden, I was a little hesitant to plant according to frost date this year. In February, I had seen a local farmer post on Facebook something that sounded to me like pioneer weather wisdom:

February thunder brings a May frost.

It sounded like something out of the Farmer’s Alamanc. We had a thunderstorm on February 2, this year, and while our last frost date is usually around Mother’s Day (May 8), we had a frost on May 16. That frost damaged several crops in the area, and I was glad I had seen that farmer’s post and had waited to plant in my garden.

I saw another saying come true this year as well and this time it was from farmers who had to wait until after the frost and then had a second delay in planting due to rain. When most finally got around to planting, they noticed that at the same time there was a lot of white stuff floating around in the air.

When cottonwood starts to fly, it’s time to plant corn.

Seeing these sayings come true before my eyes made me wonder what other old farming wisdom was out there from pioneer days and even earlier in history. I began noticing other signs in nature, such as that June Bugs were only seen from our porch when it was a warm night. It had to be even warmer for the frogs to show up. I wondered if it might not be a good idea to wait for them to show up at least three nights in a row before trusting my plants to stay outside all night.

Hmmmm….maybe these farmers and the pioneers before them were on to something.

I decided to explore 3 different books of old-time weather wisdom from colonial days through pioneer days:

Pioneer wisdom for planting and weather

People have been planting long before there were apps or the internet to tell you when, where and how to plant in a garden. Planting was done by carefully watching signs in nature, including the weather and the moon. Over time, people began to notice patterns for what worked and what didn’t and those observations turned into catchy sayings that could easily be taught to the next generation and the next.

Many folklore sayings don’t have much to back them up scientifically, but then there are others like the two I saw that do show themselves true in nature, at least sometimes.

As survival moms, it could help to know some folklore in regards to weather and planting in case of a long-term power or Internet outage. A calendar last-frost date could be hard to figure out if you’ve lost track of what day it is exactly. Or, by paying attention to nature, you might be able to avoid a late frost like I did this year. Consider, too, that even with all of today’s technology, weather forecasts are not 100% accurate. Nature has its ways of predicting the weather, too.

Besides the Internet, one of the best sources to find folklore sayings is to get the Old Farmer’s Almanac or one of the books their editors publish. I picked a few up at my local library to look through (after which, I promptly put them on my list of books to buy for my reference shelf).

One of those books was, A Millennium Primer: Timeless Truths and Delightful Diversions by The Old Farmer’s Almanac editors and Tim Clark

A Millennium Primer was written to be a “summary” of the Old Farmer’s Almanacs from 1792 to 1999. The editor wanted it to be like a “suitcase you’ve packed for your journey into the next millennium.” It’s broken down into seven sections covering the human connection, health and food, self-reliance, animals, the sky, time and space and prediction. Here are some of the old sayings I found in the book — some interesting, some accurate, and some never proven to be true!

“When sheep collect and huddle, tomorrow will become a puddle.”

“St. Swithin’s Day (July 15) if thou dost rain, for 40 days it will remain.” (Not proven to be true.)

“Bats flying late in the evening foretell a fine next day.”

“Cows give more milk and the sea more fish when the wind’s from the west.”

“If a fowl roll in the sand, rain is at hand.”

“There’ll be one snow in the coming winter for every fog in August.”

The book also gives advice on using insects as thermometers. Grasshoppers are loudest at 95F, but can’t make noise below 62F. If you hear a house cricket, count how many times he chirps in 14 seconds and add 40 for the temperature where the cricket is. Ants don’t emerge from their dens unless it is 55F or above. Bees cluster outside their hive at 102F and inside at 57F. No noise from insects means it is 40F or below.

There are also tips on predicting the weather by the moon. Researchers are finding there is a correlation between the full moon, cloudiness, rainfall and thunderstorms. The full moon can raise the temperature of the lower four miles of the Earth’s atmosphere by a few hundredths of a degree – enough to affect the weather.

Weather & gardening wisdom from Ben Franklin

The second book I found at the library was Ben Franklin’s Almanac of Wit, Wisdom, and Practical Advice by The Old Farmer’s Almanac editors. Before the Old Farmer’s Almanac, there was Poor Richard’s Almanack, published by Ben Franklin from 1733-1758. It contained tables and weather predictions, along with whatever wisdom Franklin wanted to include. This book contains selections from his almanacs and information on Franklin’s life.

Here are some of the more interesting folklore sayings I found in this book:

”For every thunderstorm in February will be a cold spell in May.” (This is the one my farmer friend had heard!)

“If grass grows in January, it will grow badly the whole year.”

“When oak trees bend with snow in January, good crops my be expected.”

“When the cat in February lies in the sun, she will creep behind the stove again in March.”

“April snow breeds grass.”

“Old-timers in the upland South believe that frost will not occur after the dogwoods have bloomed.”

“If the ash leafs out before the oak, expect a wet season.”

“Frogs singing at dusk indicate fair weather to come.”

“Mist in May and heat in June makes the harvest right soon.”

“There will be as many frosts in June as there are fogs in February.”

“When hornets build their nests high, expect a hot summer.”

“Wet June, dry September.”

“If the wind be hushed with sudden heat, expect heavy rain.”

“When spiderwebs are wet with dew that soon dries, expect a fine day.”

“If the first week in August is unusually warm, the winter will be white and long.”

“Spiderwebs floating at autumn sunset, bring frost that night, on this you may bet.”

“If meadows are green at Christmas, at Easter they will be covered with frost.”

The book is chock full of tips on cooking, gardening, taking care of the house, how to find north without a compass, how to predict a frost using nature and animals. (The wider the black band on a brown wooly caterpillar, the more severe the winter will be.)

The classic American almanac

The Old Farmer’s Almanac is a classic, and a new, updated version is available each year. There is also a lot of information on their website. You can visit daily for a bit of advice (some is folklore). There are sections for weather, astronomy, gardening, calendars, food and advice. I think I might start checking my local forecast on their Web site and comparing it to the local news station’s forecast. You can get personalized gardening calendars and search their pest reference library.

I also asked my farmer friend if he could share any more folklore sayings he’s heard from the “old-timers” and pioneers of days gone by. Here is what he shared:

“If cows go in, rain will be short lasting. If they stay out, it’s going to rain a while.”

“You can always tell it’s going to rain if the leaves turn under and the flies bite.”

When referring to planting dates on corn, if you plant late due to weather, you lose a bushel (of yield potential) after the 10th of May. “A bushel per day after the 10th of May” the old saying goes.

After seeing some folklore sayings come true this year, I’m going to be paying more attention to nature when it comes to gardening and weather. I’m planning to buy some Old Farmer’s Almanac books and teach some of the folklore saying to my children as we see them come true. I already taught them about the June Bugs only coming out if the night was warm enough. I plan to take to heart the advice in Ben Franklin’s Almanac of Wit, Wisdom, and Practical Advice, to “… open your mind to the possibilities that exist to understand the world …”

5 Ways The Native Americans ‘Read Nature’ To Survive

5 Ways The Native Americans 'Read Nature' To Survive (No. 2 Might Be The Most Important One)

Artist: Frank McCarthy

 

For most of us, finding out the day’s weather is as easy as turning on our television or checking the forecast on our smartphones, but the native people of North America had to rely on what they were taught.

They simply read the signs of nature – a skill we should practice more.

Learning to read the signs of nature, which are often right in front of us, can help us track animals for food, find safe sources of food and water, and even predict the weather.

In fact, most indigenous children were able to survive on their own at a very young age because they were taught the signs to look for almost as soon as they could talk.

Unfortunately, many of these skills have become forgotten by most in our society over the last few centuries, but you can still pick up these important survival skills and learn directly from nature.

1. Following the Weather

No matter what part of the country you are living in, bad weather can sneak up on you. Indigenous people were always aware of their surroundings, knowing that dangerous animals, enemies or storms could be just around the corner.

By paying attention to nature’s signs, native people knew that one can almost feel bad weather before it starts. Before a big storm, the wind generally picks up, making the leaves on trees twist and showing you their lighter-colored underside. Look into the distance and see if you can see rain further out. Take a deep breath. Native people find that you can smell rain in the distance, even if mountains prevent you from seeing it. Birds will fly lower to the ground and begin to gather in the trees, even though it is still mid-day. Crickets will stop chirping. Fish sometimes come to the surface and even leap out of the water. If wildlife around you suddenly disappear or if you spot seagulls farther inland than normal, a storm is surely on its way.

2. Finding Water5 Ways The Native Americans 'Read Nature' To Survive (No. 2 Might Be The Most Important One)

Over the centuries, native people relied on the same water sources year after year. But for non-nomadic tribes, or when traveling, finding water was a skill no one could afford not to learn! To find water, native people learned to look for green-leafed trees, such as aspens or cottonwoods. The presence of birds, dragonflies or other animals usually means that there is water somewhere nearby. Native people learned to watch for animal trails, such as deer paths, and to follow them downhill. Since animals need water as well, you can bet that a trail will eventually lead to a watering hole. Also, if animals were drinking it, the water was most likely safe to drink. Canyons that face north are more likely to have watering holes, even in the summer, as the sun does not penetrate that far inside the canyon. Natives knew that a dry river bed might still have water. They would look for green plants clinging to the edges and dig right next to them. Chances are that water was just a few inches below the surface.

3. Knowing Which Wild Plants Were Safe for Eating

This is another skill that native people passed down to one another, and it varies greatly depending on where you are. While indigenous people knew that cattails were quite edible, there were not many in the deserts or dry valley areas. Non-nomadic tribes, such as the Ojibwa, raised crops on family plots, but nomadic tribes learned over the centuries which plants were safe to eat and when to harvest them. Native people learned to watch the animals for reliable food sources. Squirrels, blue jays, crows and other animals sometimes hide food — such as acorns — for later consumption. If food was scarce, these were dug up and eaten. Many tribes knew that when birds, deer or other animals were eating berries, these were generally safe for humans as well. Many wild berries, such as blackberries, grow near the forest edges. Plantain is found almost everywhere in the U.S. and can be eaten raw or cooked. Dandelions are another edible plant. (But don’t ever consume mushrooms unless you are 100 percent certain you know what you are choosing, as many are poisonous.) The indigenous people looked to the trees to find nuts or fruit. Native people learned to avoid plants that smelled like almonds, or any plant that has thorns.

4. Finding their Way Home

5 Ways The Native Americans 'Read Nature' To Survive (No. 2 Might Be The Most Important One)

Artist: Alfred Jacob Miller

Ever wonder how the native people of this land never seemed to get lost? Even when a single young man would walk out into the woods to hunt, they never seemed to have trouble finding their way back. How did they do this? Again, indigenous people were always aware of their surroundings. They knew a marker (such as a mountain or a particular growth of trees) that would help to guide them back. Also, without a compass, they still knew the four directions.

New ‘Survival Herb Bank’ Gives You Access to God’s Amazing Medicine Chest

Even without sunlight, they would know that the north end of a gorse bush, for example, had the thickest tufts of “flowers.” They also knew that trees tend to grow longer or grow more branches on the side that faces south. Before they even left camp, indigenous people knew what direction their camp lay in relation to their journey, so finding their way back was pretty easy.

5. Finding Meat

Native people ate quite a bit of meat when they could find it. Since animals tend to migrate or move about to find their own food, meat choices for indigenous people varied, depending on the season. Fishing was always a good source of food. Nets, not poles, were the preferred method of fishing, although spears were also sometimes used in deeper water.

Many women made traps near water sources or along known animal trails. Birds, such as ducks and geese, were often caught using traps, bolas or slings. Even small children learned to use slings or slingshots to kill rabbits, raccoons and squirrels.

For most of us, skills such as these would take a lifetime of learning, or at least several years of classes, plus practice. However, for the native people of North America, reading the signs of nature was as normal as putting on moccasins in the morning.

Comments on my Post-Collapse Skill: Weather Forecasting article

Click here to view the original post.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted an article entitled Post-Collapse Skill: Weather Forecasting. In it, I pointed out how useful the ability to accurately forecast the weather would be in a post-collapse world, where we no longer have the national weather service, weather satellites, etc.  One o f my twitter followers, Cindy McCafferty (@CMcCafferty3), an amateur weather forecaster according to her twitter bio, sent me a series of tweets on the topic. Here are her suggestions**:

** “Acurite has a station battery and solar powered $100 Walmart, $200 internet recording on”  

** “Mine is the Acurite 1010 Pro several years old $80-100 at Walmart. Mine does not connect to internet/stats on Wunderground”

** “ My old Acurite 1010 Professional indoor monitor panel buy the one with all the bells and whistle”  Her tweet included this pic:


Folks, here’s the link to the Amazon listings for AcuRite weather stations. 

** “You can also use stats from other people’s stations on Wunderground”

The website for Wunderground is https://www.wunderground.com. Its a really interesting website, which uses/posts stats from thousands of personal weather stations. You can easily pull up info from nearby weather stations.

** “And don’t forget aneroid at hardware stores, garage sales set altitude”

McCafferty is referring to aneroid barometers, which are instruments for measuring pressure with a method that does not involve using a liquid. Remember to adjust them for your altitude.

In some additional tweets, McCafferty also suggests being careful of where you place your weather station. Too near a building, for example, might interfere with wind speed measurement, etc.

Thank You, Cindy, for you comments. I found them very useful, and will likely be getting my own AcuRite weather station in the next few weeks!

Multi-Day Severe Weather Outbreak to Target Central US

Click here to view the original post.

By Becky Elliott AccuWeather

A dangerous, multiple-day severe weather event will continue to unfold across the part of the central United States into midweek.

Following the first significant heat wave of the season across the Plains and Mississippi Valley, hot conditions and high humidity will give way to downpours and powerful thunderstorms across a large portion of the region.

The greatest threat from the storms will be from damaging wind gusts and large hail. However, a small number of storms could produce a tornado and flash flooding.

12 Ways to Stay Cool During Hot Summers

Click here to view the original post.
stay cool

Old brick home with high ceilings and double hung windows

The other day we had lunch in Grass Valley in a building that was constructed in the 1860’s.  Now it was a fairly hot day but the building was cool even with the windows open and no air conditioning.  This got me to thinking about what people did to stay cool in hot weather in the past.  After all air conditioning has only been available to most people for the last 50 years or so.

I have spent some time in Arizona and Nevada and one thing that I have noticed is that many of the newer homes and other buildings are so dependent on air conditioning you would have to break the windows to get outside ventilation.  If the power is out there is no cross ventilation, the buildings would become a hot box.

So you are a prepper and you live in a climate that gets hot in the summer what do you do to stay cool without electricity?

If you are looking to design a home, buy one or even rent take a good look at the home and see if you will be able to stay cool in the summers.

  1. Take a look at the way in which the home is oriented. More windows should face south than east or west.  During the summer months, more sunlight enters a house through east- or west-facing windows than through south- or north-facing windows.  Also, take into consideration what direction the prevailing breeze comes from.

    stay cool

    Old brick home with high ceilings and double hung windows

  1. Shade your windows. This is why so many homes used to have awnings or large wrap around porches.  In the summer, the sun is higher in the sky and you can shade your south facing windows and still have the sun heat them in the winter when it is lower in the sky.  When designed correctly the overhangs will allow full winter sun to enter the house and completely shade the windows from the hot summer sun.  The size and design of the overhang will depend on your climate.  In general, shading windows on the exterior is better than using interior blinds, as it keeps out more unwanted heat.  Shading devices can include trellises, shutters, roof overhangs and shade trees.
  1. If you are designing a home from scratch, go with high ceilings. In older homes, you will notice that in hot areas they often had 10 or 12 foot or even higher ceilings.  High ceiling combined with tall double hung windows provided good ventilation.

    stay cool

    Double hung windows

  1. Everyone knows that heat rises, so if you have high windows and open them when it hot inside, the hot air will vent out. Now if you have high ceilings double hung windows, here’s what happens.  When air passes over your home, it works the same way as it does over an airplane wing: the Bernoulli Effect causes the air on top and on the downwind side of the house to be at a lower pressure than on the upwind side.  So if you have double hung windows, you can open the bottom section of the upwind side of the house and the upper section of the downwind side and the low pressure will suck the air through your house.  Make the outlet openings larger than the inlet opening.  This increases the draft.  When we were on the fire department, we were taught to do this to help remove the smoke from a building faster.
  1. Insulate your home well. Many of the older buildings in the hotter climates were made of adobe or brick with the walls a foot or more in thickness.  Often a foot or two of dirt was placed in the attic for insulation.  Today it is a lot easier to insulate your homes with the new products that are available.  Unwanted heat gain enters a house not only through windows, but also through the walls and roof of a house.  Don’t forget to use double pane windows.  In the older homes the brick or adobe would cool at night and help keep you cool during the day.
  1. Provide a reflective roof. A light-colored, reflective roof may help to keep your home cool by reflecting the hot sun.  The best such roof should not only be reflective, but also have high emissivity.  Look for roof materials certified by the Cool Roof Rating Council or the Energy Star Roof program.
  1. You need a home with effective cross ventilation. It amazes me how many homes and other buildings today are not designed to provide cross ventilation.  You need windows that will open on all sides of your home to allow for good airflow.  Opening the windows at night can cool your home and if you combine that with good insulation, by closing the windows during the day stay cool all day.

    stay cool

    Transoms, be sure and get the kind that open

  1. Transoms: Installing these mini windows above doors is something that you never see anymore. But they work to help keep you cool.  Operable transoms allow natural light and vent to flow from bedrooms to areas that typically don’t have access to natural light and vent, such as hallways, closets and other rooms without windows.  Transoms also provide this benefit of exhausting hot rising air while allowing doors to stay closed for privacy and sound control.
  1. Planting Trees. By planting shade trees in proximity to your home, particularly on the west side you can shade your home.  If you use deciduous trees, they will let the sun in during the winter when you need the heat.
  1. Cook outside In the past many people cooked outside during hot weather. They would build permanent stoves outside under covers that were open sided.  This allowed for breezes to help keep the cooks cool and keep the cooking heat out of the house.
  1. Roof vents – make sure that you have good roof vents to take the heat out of your attic.
  1. Screen porches in the past many homes had screen porches and if it became too hot would sleep in them.

Whether you are looking to buy a new home, building one or looking to improve your current one, take these ideas in consideration.  As you implement these steps, you will see that they work.  While they may never be quite as good as modern air conditioning, they will help you stay cool.

How to Help Your Body Acclimate to the Summer Heat

Click here to view the original post.

4 Tips to Survive and Adapt to the Heat

Last year around this time, a man in his early 20s came into the clinic who was experiencing chest pain and a headache and was just overall feeling awful.

He’d been working on a roof. He’d done this kind of work for years with no problem. But at that time, in June, we had a heat wave. All of a sudden, instead of a daytime high in the mid-70s, the temperature was hitting the low 90s. This long-time outdoor laborer’s body simply hadn’t had time to acclimate.

For as long as I’ve practiced medicine, I’ve known that every summer, in those first few hot days, I’ll be treating some otherwise healthy people for heat-related problems. Fortunately, this man got out of the heat as soon as the symptoms hit. After drinking some water and cooling off, he was feeling fine in a few hours.

Probably, a few weeks later, he was working in the same temperature with no such symptoms. Why?

He was acclimated, or acclimatized.

No matter how many years you’ve been working or living in the heat, your body has to reacclimate to it each year. So with sudden changes, such as heat waves, everybody suffers.

Another sudden change could be the electricity going out—taking the air-conditioning with it. That’s a disaster in my book. Or maybe you take a vacation to a hot spot. Any sudden change of heat—say 10 degrees Fahrenheit or more—will require time for your body to adapt.

You can help it along by taking certain steps. To understand why these steps work, though, you need to know how your body acclimates to the heat in the first place.

Heat Acclimation: How Your Body Adapts

When the weather gets hotter, your body starts to acclimate in a few ways.

  1. Your body sweats more efficiently. Four main sweat-related changes take place:
  • Your body begins to produce more sweat in response to heat.
  • Your body starts sweating at a lower temperature.
  • The sweat has a lower salt concentration, so you don’t lose as much sodium.
  • This less-concentrated sweat evaporates faster, cooling the skin quicker.
  1. Your metabolism decreases a little. Metabolism produces heat. Your body reduces it by putting a little more fluid into your blood. This increases the blood’s volume so that with each heartbeat, more gets pumped out. Your heart rate slows down in response, which reduces your body’s workload, decreasing your metabolism a bit.

One thing to remember, though, is your body can’t accomplish these adaptions in a split second. In fact, it takes a day or so before it even starts trying and about two weeks for the acclimation to complete. During this time, it will only know to start working on these processes if it’s exposed to a minimum of about two hours of that extra heat every day.

4 Tips to Support Your Own Heat Acclimatization

In those first few days of hot weather, you can help your body both survive and acclimate.

  1. Gradually build up your workload. Your body produces heat of its own. (Remember that metabolism?) The more work, the more heat. So if you work outside:
  • Take it easy those first few days, and take frequent breaks.
  • Remember, it only takes a couple of hours a day of exposure for your body to know it needs to start acclimating. To help trigger it to start, it’s best to accumulate at least an hour of heat exposure at a time, but shade and rest are a good thing.
  • Taking advantage of air-conditioning during your breaks is encouraged.

For we who stay inside most of the time, a walk or light yard work in the coolest part of the day might start the acclimation process—or just sitting in the shade for a spell. I’ve also seen recommendations to try to keep your indoor temperature no more than about 10 degrees lower than the outside. Maybe not too practical—not to mention dangerous—if it’s 105 outside, but perhaps you could gradually turn it up a bit, at least to the low to mid-70s?

  1. Go topless. You lose about two-thirds of your heat from the waist up. Maybe wear a loose, breathable shirt for modesty—and to prevent sunburn. The main thing here is the dilemma of using helmets. They may be essential for safety, but they also can hold in a lot of heat. So if you wear headgear, go even a little more slowly in the heat. And again, frequent breaks to take the helmet off, when your out of danger, can help a lot. Even with a hat, try one that breathes a little, or maybe just take it off and fan every once in a while.
  1. Drink fluids. In order for your body to utilize sweat and use your circulation effectively, it must have plenty of fluids. Drink more water in the heat. (Unless you’re really working hard, you should be able to get enough electrolytes, like sodium and potassium, from your food.) Dehydration can especially fool you in dry climates. The sweat can evaporate so fast you never know you’re sweating. Yet, given the same temperature, you probably lose even more fluid in a dry climate than you do through the heavy sweat you feel and see in the humidity. One of the ways your body adapts to heat is by making you feel thirstier, but I wouldn’t count on that too much. Thirsty or not, you need to need to replace lost fluids.
  1. Stay in shape. If you’re in good physical shape, that’s a big plus since your body doesn’t have to work as hard as one that’s not physically fit to do the same activity. And fat? Well, it’s a great insulator. It holds in heat really well. Not an ideal situation if your body is trying to cool down.

The Limits of Heat Acclimation

Anyone exposed to the heat can have a heat-related illness, but some of us just can’t acclimate as well. For babies, those of us in our 60s and older, and people who have a chronic disease or take certain medications, try as they may, our bodies may just not acclimate well. We’re at extra risk and need to take extra precautions to try to stay cool.

Have you ever been caught off-guard by the heat? How did it affect you?

Weather Prediction for Preppers Using Nature Signs

Click here to view the original post.

weather prediction Most of us depend on the news for weather predictions. We have easy access to the weather service. So what happens when it is no longer available and we have to depend on our own knowledge?  In reality, there are some simple skills that our ancestors used to predict the weather.

Suppose you are starting to cook breakfast over your open fire and you notice that the smoke is not rising but spreading out at a low altitude.  This tells you that you have a temperature inversion.  This creates a sandwich effect.  Sound, light and radio waves bounce between the top of the cool lower layer of air and the ground.  This means that sound and odors will carry further and it will affect radio transmissions.  Radio waves especially VHF will bounce between the layers and travel further.  This means you may be able to receive and transmit to radio stations that are hundreds of miles outside your normal range.  An inversion can also be a sign that a storm is coming.

You have all heard the old saying Red sky at night, sailors delight; red sky in the morning, a sailors warning.  Now this is not an wife’s tale, there is some truth behind it.

A red sky in the morning can indicate that there is moisture in the sky and a storm is coming from the west.

A ring around the sun and the moon is a result of ice crystals forming in the high cirrus clouds.  This can often indicate that a storm is coming.

Know the direction of the prevailing wind in your area.  Changes in wind direction can be indicative of weather changes.

There are old saying that were used by our ancestors for weather prediction.  Upon study, they seem to have a basis in fact.

Here are several that were used for weather prediction

  • A cow with tail to the west, makes weather the best; A cow with tail to the east, makes weather the least.
  • When the dew is on the grass, Rain will never come to pass.
  • Grey mists at dawn, The day will be warm.
  • When human hair becomes limp, rain is near.
  • When bees stay close to the hive, Rain is close by.

Now remember when your grandmother used to complain that her arthritis was bothering her and she predicted rain.  Many people with joint diseases, bad teeth, recently healed broken bones, and even corns and bunions report feeling aches as the barometer drops. Low barometric pressure often indicates that clouds and rain are on the way.

weather prediction

Thunderheads or cumulonimbus

Now one of the biggest things to watch for is thunderheads, known as cumulonimbus.  I am sure you have all seen these often in the afternoon.  Be sure and pay attention to them, if you are caught out in it a thunderstorm, you are in danger from lightning strikes. Here is  a post on how to avoid How to Avoid Lightning Strikes.  Thunderheads often turn into cumulonimbus mammatus which are indicative of tornados.  Take a good look at the picture of them and if you see them get to cover, the chance of a tornado is high.

Animals can be a good indicator of changes in weather.

weather prediction

Cumulonimbus mammatus, These pouches that form on the underside are the beginnings of a possible funnel cloud or tornado

Watch their coats, are they thicker than normal.  Are ducks migrating early?  Are the squirrels working harder than normal?

None of these methods are as easy as turning on the radio, but if you take the time to learn them and start watching natures signs you can be reasonably good at weather prediction.

Despite drought-alleviating El Niño-induced rainfall during winter, a near-average wildfire season is anticipated across the northwestern United States.

The 2015 wildfire season was record-breaking as serious drought and warm conditions kept a tight grip of the region. Over 10 million wildfire acres were burned last year, breaking the previous record of 9.87 million acres set in 2006.

Not only did the Northwest report above-average fire occurrences in 2015 based on an annual 10-year average, the region also experienced above-average acres burned, according to the National Interagency Coordination Center’s 2015 wildland fire summary and statistics annual report.

Survival World News

By Alex SosnowskiAccuWeather

The threat of damaging and dangerous thunderstorms will shift farther east on Wednesday and will be centered from the middle Mississippi Valley to the Gulf Coast.

As the storm system responsible for a severe weather outbreak over the Plains on Tuesday moves eastward, so will the risk to lives and property.

On Wednesday, the threat of violent storms will extend along an approximate 800-mile-long swath from Missouri and central Illinois to eastern Texas and coastal areas of Mississippi and Alabama.

Avoidance The Un Sexy Solution To Almost Every Survival Problem

Click here to view the original post.
Today I want to talk about the solution we all like to ignore. With whatever the heck is going on today in the greater OK, KA area weather wise I got to thinking. Today I took the simple and smart solution to just cancel plans and stay home. This solves all the to and from issues as well as being caught out in it on the roads.

The sexy solution would be a jeep with big jacked up tires and a snorkel or something. Like so many situations the practical solution is boring. Postponing plans a few days a year can keep you out of most of the bad weather. A post about installing the snorkel on my super BOV Jeep or Toyota truck would get way more hits than one about why you should stay home when bad things might happen.

The same can be said for crime. Choosing where to live and travel can greatly decrease your crime related problems. A safer zip code is more useful than putting bars on the windows and razor wire on the fence.

Remember, you successfully survive every problem you avoid facing.

Survival World News

By Alex SosnowskiAccuWeather

Areas from Austin, Texas, to Omaha, Nebraska, are on alert for a severe weather outbreak that is likely to feature multiple tornadoes into Tuesday night.

The storms will threaten lives and property and are likely to produce the biggest outbreak of the year so far. There is the potential for this outbreak to rival some of the biggest in the past few years.

The first severe storms ignited in Nebraska and northeastern Kansas during Tuesday morning. Severe storms were moving into northern Missouri and southern Iowa during the midday hours. This is just a small sample of what may unfold later in the day.

Frost 101: THIS Is The Temperature You Better Start Covering Your Vegetables

Frost 101: THIS Is The Temperature You Better Start Covering Your Vegetables

Image source: Deposit Photos

 

Every spring when the first spell of warm weather occurs, many beginning gardeners head to their local garden centers and nurseries, eager to get planting. When the temperatures rise and the sun is shining, it is tempting to want to get a head start on your spring garden.

However, that head start can be a frustrating waste of time and money when spring frost damages or destroys your young plants. You can avoid this scenario by doing a little homework on frost and freeze dates in your area.

First, what exactly is frost? By definition, frost is a collection of tiny white ice crystals that form on the ground or other solid surfaces when the air temperature gets cold.

Frost forms when water vapor in the air changes from the gas phase to the solid stage. Frost is difficult to predict, though, because the air temperature within the vicinity of your garden can be several degrees higher than 32 degrees Fahrenheit – the freeze point — and yet it can still form on your plants. As a result, the National Weather Service uses 36 degrees Fahrenheit and below as its guideline for a possible frost. But even then, frost may not occur. The air must be mostly still, and moisture has to be in the air. (A frost is different from a freeze, in which the temperature must be 32 or below.)

Seamazing: The Low-Cost Way To Re-mineralize Your Soil

Frost can damage plants by causing ice crystals to form in the plant cells, disrupting the movement of fluids to plant tissues. Frost-damaged leaves first appear water-soaked; then they shrivel and turn dark in color.

Garden plants are classified according to the temperatures they can usually tolerate. Plants classified as “hardy” can tolerate some frost, while plants classified as “tender” often are killed or damaged by frost.

Frost 101: THIS Is The Temperature You Better Start Covering Your Vegetables

Image source: Pixabay.com

The average last spring frost date usually ranges from mid-March to mid-May, depending on where you live in the United States. Almanacs, websites and university extension services often take historical data into consideration and list an average date as the last frost date.

Many seed and gardening websites feature last frost dates that you can look up by typing in your zip code. Keep in mind, however, that that date is an average, and that means that a frost can certainly occur after that date.

The location of your garden can play a big factor in whether your plants are damaged by a frost or not. Generally, air temperature lowers from 3-5 degrees Fahrenheit with each thousand-foot increase in altitude. Therefore, the higher the elevation of your garden, the more likely your plants will be hit by a frost or freeze. On the other hand, cold air is heavier than warm air and can sink to lower areas, causing frost damage.

The best spot for an early annual garden is on a gentle, south-facing slope that is exposed to plenty of late-afternoon sun and is protected from the north wind. A garden that is surrounded by trees, shrubs or buildings or is located near a body of water is also less likely to be damaged by frost. Additionally, closely spaced plants can protect each other from frost damage.

The best way to prepare for a late-season frost is to know the sensitivity level of your plants. In addition, the plant itself can give you clues. Immature plants that still had new growth showing well into the fall are susceptible to damage. Plants with dark-colored leaves – especially bronze or maroon – absorb and retain heat and can better handle a frost. Also, in general, plants that are compact have less to expose to the cold and wind and therefore can ride out a frost better than taller plants with smaller leaves.

Get The Best Deals On Non-GMO Seeds For Your Garden Right Here!

What should you do if you have planted your garden and learn that a frost is likely? Here are a few tips:

  • Cover your plants to retain soil heat and moisture and to protect them from strong winds. You can use newspapers, fabric tarps, sheets, straw or baskets, but be sure to cover the entire plant in order to trap any heat. Anchor lightweight coverings to prevent them from blowing away. Avoid plastic covers because, unless you remove them quickly enough in the morning, they can create enough heat in the morning sun that will actually burn your plants.
  • Water your plants if frost is predicted. It may seem counter-intuitive, but as the water freezes, it will release heat, protecting the plants from damage.
  • If you are able to use an electric fan to protect your plants from the elements, then set one up by your garden. Even a small breeze can help stop cold air from settling on your plants and then freezing during the night.
  • Potted plants are susceptible to frosts because their roots are less insulated. Move smaller pots indoors or under a cover. If the planters are too big to move, wrap the pots in burlap or bubble wrap or try burying the pot in the ground. Also, place a covering over the foliage.

As you plan your spring garden, realize that in late April or early May, you are not out of the woods for a spring frost. If your green thumb cannot wait and you are a bit of a risk taker, you still can have gardening success as long as you watch the weather carefully and prepare for the worst.

Following a very warm start to spring over the eastern United States, why is cold air returning in April, when temperatures typically trend upward?

During much of March and long stretches of the winter for that matter, arctic air had been locked up across central and northern Canada.

“Persistent high pressure aloft near the Atlantic coast prevented cold air from moving southward out of Canada and into the eastern United States,” according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson.
