To those unaware of the potential rail workers strike looming, which could effectively shut off the supply chain in this country, you can click here and read this article first.
Workers in a dozen rail unions now have until December 9 to approve the terms of the deal that has been offered to them. Of those twelve, seven have approved and three have not with two undeclared.
While those that have approved make up the vast majority of workers in total, all must approve in order to go forward.
Which means, in short, that there is still a big question mark hanging over our supply chain going into the winter months.
While things look a little more hopeful than they did before in terms of avoiding a strike that would be debilitating to this country, there may in fact still be a strike that is debilitating to this country.
So what should you do to prepare your family and household should that happen?
Those of you who are longtime readers here know that I have long advocated for stocking up for disaster preparedness, supply chain breakdowns, food shortages/scarcity, etc.
So it is still time and, in the short term, perhaps high time to do just that.
There are still about three weeks before the unions need to make their call, which is a good amount of time for anybody to prep their households with at least the basics: enough food for at least a short period, toiletries, and other necessities that will likely see a run on the shelves should there be even a short term supply chain halt.
I, of course, advocate for being prepared for much longer periods of time generally, but you get the picture.
You might remember the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, where there was nary a roll of toilet paper to be found on the shelves. And that was just in anticipation of supply chain issues.
So, as I’ve said before, the time to stock up is always now.
There are simple ways to do so without breaking the bank (increasingly harder to do due to inflation, no doubt) and without having to adopt an unfamiliar lifestyle. Click here for tips on how to do just that.

And always remember, preparing your household now is one of the most selfless things you can do for your community should a food or supply shortage arrive, along with supporting your local food banks.
