State of Affairs in Egypt

Egypt is fast approaching the one-year anniversary of Morsi's election as president, and many, many people are not happy with his job thus far. So, there are protests demanding his resignation on the horizon, very big ones planned for this Friday and Sunday. Already, there is no more gasoline in the country. Or at least no more being sold. Rolling blackouts have been going on pretty regularly, but they will certainly worsen, along with water cuts.

I have things to catch up on LJ (entries I want to reply to), but I need to spend the next few days preparing for worst-case contingencies. Better to prepare and have surplus food, water, etc on our hands than not enough.  I may or may not be online, depending on whether or not our provider remains up and running, which was not the case for almost all companies during the revolution.

Another post coming tomorrow and then it shall be, "See you on the flip side."

Please take care of yourselves. Stay as safe as you can. If I could, at least for this time, I'd spirit your whole family out of the country.

That sounds rather frightening. Do you have any concerns for your safety?

Hope you and J & S will be all right!

Keeping you and your family in my thoughts. Stay safe.

Sounds like sensible precautions. Hope you stay safe!

I know I've said this before, but take care!
