Survivalist Tip: Whether or not you live near a coastline, river, large lake or a sewage plant, you must have some heavy-duty rain wear. You need sturdy attire made of firm yet malleable rubber. Heavy precipitation is expected when the apocalypse hits next week, and since it’s winter in the Northern Hemisphere, that means snow and ice for most of the region. Heavy rain gear includes hip waders, boots, ponchos, jackets and backpacks; all will help to keep out water and snow. There’s no worse feeling than trying to save your kids, pets, or bags of chocolate while soaked to the skin. Believe me – I’ve been there.
