How much do you really understand your natural world? Do you know about the trees, the fish, the plants and the seasons? I mean really know them.
What trees can heal you? What are the true dangers of each season?
Being able to predict the weather by observing cloud formations is a skill that is somewhat lost on us, modern humans. Most of us can easily look at a cloud and see the unicorn or ice cream cones, but very few of us can look at clouds and see the approaching cold front.
Fortunately, being able to predict the weather with clouds is easier than one may think. This is a great skill we all should know since if SHTF there will likely be no weather people.
Watering your Garden
Water resources are going to be precious in a grid down SHTF scenario. The tap will no longer work. That means you are going to have to water your garden with water from local streams and lakes or water you have caught from the sky.
Knowing rain is coming will give you a chance to give watering the day off.
Preparing for Disaster
You will know when a hurricane is coming or a bad thunderstorm based on the winds and clouds. There is nothing that looks like a wall cloud or an anvil cloud moving into town!
Enjoying a Beautiful Day
Those high wispy clouds are often a sign that a good day is ahead. It might be a day for travel, outdoor work or just to enjoy life. Don’t think that we will never have good times again in a collapse. Everything sways from one side to another.
Keep building up your skills and be ready for the day, if it ever comes, that things change drastically. Life is too precious to throw away cowering in our corners.
