The videos of people trying to escape the deadly fires scorching through California and the destruction left in the wake are scary, horrific, and heartbreaking. As the wildfires continue to burn, I thought today’s post might be helpful. It’s another excellent survival tip from The Art of Manliness – escaping a wildfire.

Forget Daylight Savings. Here’s a handy dandy way of checking how much daylight is left. Great for those camping outdoors or for authors writing scenes involving characters on a quest or on the run. Think the kids will use this?

Ok. So I found this excellent information! I mean, I just KNOW one day I’ll be busting through a barricade across state lines on a beer-toting dare. Or during some post-apocalypse chase.

Seems like there has been a lot of flooding these days due to Mother Nature. Just last year, my area was hit hard with flooding thanks to Hurricane Harvey. Many are still recovering. Central Texas is seeing flooding right now as rivers rise. And the Florida panhandle is facing Hurricane Michael this week. Rain-making events lead to potential disasters. And excessive development leaves nowhere for the water to go except inside homes and businesses. So this week’s link, courtesy of The Art of Manliness, might be useful—how to make a sandbag wall.
Stay high and dry out there.

This is great info for authors. Also awesome for those running from enemy soldiers, super intelligent zombies, post-apocalyptic bounty hunters, your children. Never know when you might need to disappear for a while.

Ever heard the saying “Red skies at night, sailors’ delight; red skies at morn, sailors be warned”? How about “Rain before seven, clear by eleven”? Turns out these adages have some truth behind them.
The Art of Manliness offers up 22 of these weather proverbs and what they mean. These are so cool. Some I was familiar with and knew the science behind them. But most I had not. Fun stuff here.
