Prepping for weather - JRSC - 07-11-2015

I've been trying to do some research on how to personally tell the weather. In the scenario where we may be camping, hiking or even be in a survival situation we should be prepped to know some things to look for so that we aren't caught off guard by inclement weather. It could be life saving.

Here's some good sites to learn fromĀ

Amen, it has been a very wet summer with thunderstorms hitting about 50% of the time. My knees and hips have been giving me fits.

There's an app for that iPhone + solar = win!

Although, nothing beats skills & knowledge!

That's good depending on certain situations. But what do you do when crap happens? Knowledge is power. And old time knowledge trumps modern technology.
