My partner isn’t a doomsday fanatic, however he likes to be prepared.
I guess it all stems from his upbringing.
His Grandpa has a bunker for the entire family packed with supplies to last them for months. This trait to constantly be prepared trickled down to his son, & then to my partner. But, he doesn’t have a bunker or something like that. Instead, he has two bags stuffed with stuff we’d need in case of an emergency. I cherish how romantic he is when explaining why he does this. But, I also worry it is too much strain to keep waiting for something excruciating to happen. He confesses the bunker his Grandpa built was never used & he kept it stocked until he passed away. I guess this is why my partner isn’t too extreme, though the logic of it all is ingrained in him. When we got a new Heating & Air Conditioning system installed in the household we purchased together, my partner swung into action, then first, he purchased a powerful generator that we use when the power is off. Living in a dwelling in an area famous with blizzards warrants getting a generator to keep the heat on. Next, he got three space boilers for the same purpose. This area gets to disadvantage temperatures as early as October so it’s essential to have back up heating. We’ve only used the space boilers once & I was so grateful my partner purchased them. My pal and I had an issue with the heater & couldn’t turn it on so we got the space boilers out before getting repair. His next project is to get portable ACs to use during summer.
