The Weather and Zombies...

   I went to the Weather Channel to check out the 10 day forecast, but I learned more than what clothes I need for the week. Being that it is October and a lot of us have Zombies on our minds I thought I would pass along these links as a public service. (well, having Zombies on our minds is  better than eating our minds, right**** Sorry I had too.)

   The people at the Weather Channel website,, in their ever increasing attempt to keep us informed, has a interview with Dr. Dale Dixon of the CDD.

   What is the CDD you ask. The CDD is the Center for Disease Development. The place for answers about post-apocalyptic  zombies. Have you ever thought about how weather affects zombies? Do they know to come in out of a Thunderstorm? Would they hid from a Tornado? Can they swim? Since they are no longer warm blooded, does the cold still affect them?

   Find the answers to these questions and more. How you ask...why clicking this link .

   So are you ready. Do you have your Zombie preparedness kit ready? Do you even know what you need for the kit?

   This is stright from the CDC web site...

   So what do you need to do before zombies…or hurricanes or pandemics for example, actually happen? First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house. This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored). Below are a few items you should include in your kit, for a full list visit the CDC Emergency page.

*Water (1 gallon per person per day)
*Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
*Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
*Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
*Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
*Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
*Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
*First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to
  treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)
