The big news today is that the House Democrats voted on an "impeachment inquiry." Who cares? It will go nowhere in the Senate, which Republicans control and which needs two-thirds in order to convict and impeach. It is all political theater and the desperate attempt by Democrats to:
1) Try to meddle in the 2020 election while trying to negate the voters from the 2016 presidential election, and;
2) Distract public attention preemptively because Democrats and the media are absolutely terrified of the DOJ Inspector General's report that is about to drop and which reportedly justifies the DOJ turning their investigation of high level Obama intelligence community members into a "criminal" investigation.
So, frankly, it seems much more important to address other things going on around the country right now, like the early winter weather, which will affect our food supply in a big way, and the "canary in the coal mine," which is California's rolling and planned blackouts leaving millions at risk.
THERE WILL BE SHORTAGES FROM EARLY WINTER AND DAMAGED CROPS
No, the world is not ending. No, Americans are not going to starve in the short-term from the severely damaged crops, but they will see major price increases in certain foods, including vegetables and fruits that are grown nationally.
While we at ANP have always recommended preparing for any type of emergency with a store of emergency survival food, freeze dried and with a long shelf life, in the event of a disaster, natural or man-made, and we still recommend always being prepared, most our pieces have linked to more whole meals, meats and proteins, which readers can find a list of in a recent piece by Stefan Stanford here.
For the purposes of this specific article, we are focusing more on freeze dried fruit and vegetables that can be stored and used in place of the produce one generally gets from the grocery store. Growing your own indoors is always preferable, but for those that haven't started indoor gardening yet, the items below have a long shelf-life, can be used as side dishes or a handful thrown into stews, soups or casseroles.

CALIFORNIA'S ROLLING BLACKOUTS SHOULD BE A LESSON FOR US ALL
The rolling blackouts in California should be a wake up call to the rest of the nation, because the U.S.'s power grids are seriously outdated and have been for some time, so what we are watching play out across California, could happen to any one of us, no matter what state we live in.
It has been long known that America's power grid is completely outdated and vulnerable, not only to attack via cyber-terrorism, but to severe weather events, drought, extreme cold, ect.... While the "climate change" crowd blames global warming, the fact is America has not invested enough in updating and strengthening our infrastructure.
“The power grid that serves the United States is aging and continues to operate without a coordinated and significant infrastructure investment. Vulnerabilities exist to electricity-generating power plants, electric transmission infrastructure and distribution system components,” it states.
As a result, the “increased energy requirements” triggered by new weather patterns like extended periods of heat, drought, and cold could eventually overwhelm “an already fragile system.”
Yet another reason that Americans, collectively, should all be "preppers."
Understand, should the entire grid go down, it isn't a "doomsday scenario" for those that are prepared, lanterns, batteries, wood stoves or other cooking methods, among other survival preparations, are par for the course for many preppers, but we live in a world where the younger generations were never taught basic life skills, and in fact, many need "adulting classes" after college just to deal with the reality of life, so millions will be completely unprepared for life without electric, grocery stores, ATM's, etc...
A number of events are happening across the U.S. that should force Americans to think about the long-term, from food and basic necessities, to the possibility of being without electricity, and to consider how they will survive without something that we have been taught to expect access to, such as flipping on a light switch.
With prices for fruits and vegetables expected to rise considerably due to the poor harvest season along with the possibility that the rolling blackouts being seen in California, could easily hit your state at some point in the near future, if you haven't started with even the basic preps, perhaps you should consider doing so.
