Count Your Blessings !

I have to kick out a post to count my blessings and thank the gods for sending me good harmonic wave lengths!

I moved out to the mountains from the city nine years ago to recharge my batteries. Now I have forgotten about recharging and enjoy a way of life much different from my former city life.

All around me are tall mountains with tight valleys and a river system that probably resembles  the network of neurons and calculator brain matter.

Hurricane Irene decided to dump copious amounts of rain on us in a short period of time and i watched little criks (sic) that were no more than a foot deep and six feet across turn into monsters of 8-10 feet deep and 20 feet across.

The main river where these little creeks empty into was a massive 18-22 feet high and 100 foot across. Flooding occurs at 8-12 feet in most places with some areas allowing for 16-18 feet. So you can imagine what type of a damage blow was dealt to my area.

To hear boulders rush down the mountain making noise that you would imagine a crashing freight train to make was unbelievable.

At any rate, I will make a toast to the gods for showing me good fortune as i was kept from harms way.

As a bearshitter, i was blessed with so many luxuries; more than the so called locals…not bad for a city boy huh.

More importantly, being prepared in today’s world is a must given all the volatility.

Today was the first day i was able to get online since early Sunday morning. My first  inclination was to get short and put some hedges on, but i think it will do me better to make that decision after tomorrows unemployment report. The S&P failed to move above the 30 day moving average, (1,220,) which i suspected would happen.

 

Dont allow life or the markets to lull you into a false sense of security and always count your blessings !
