A great video warning us of tribulation but also giving us hope.
Emergency Preparedness site for the PG, Utah Stake
Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion.
The Lord has warned and forewarned us against a day of great tribulation and given us counsel, through His servants, on how we can be prepared for these difficult times. Have we heeded His counsel?

We will be allocating all the flour out of the warehouse due to the
national, and international conditions stated in the following

World wheat prices are at record highs and show no signs of letting
up. The world wheat market is facing a perfect storm of factors that
are relentless in their ability to force wheat prices to never before
seen levels. Since December wheat has risen by 66% on top of the 83%
increase in 2007.
In early 2007 the markets rose as a result of competition between corn
and other crops for planting acres. A large portion of the US corn
crop was being diverted from food to fuel as governments mandated
increased percentages of ethanol in gasoline and diesel fuel.
In early spring one of the biggest US wheat crops on record was being
hurt by excessive rain in the west and a drought in the east. As
yield and quality fell wheat futures rose further.
In early summer with US harvest complete, problems started to surface
in Europe . Severe heat and drought followed by excessive rain at
harvest has forced many traditional exporters to import.
In January of this year the US Department of Agriculture revealed that
the US Hard Wheat Crop was much smaller than the world had
anticipated. That has forced buyers to switch to Spring Wheat driving
that market to historic highs and wheat stocks to critically low
levels. No one knows how high the market will go or if or when it
will come down.
Flour prices have risen by 40% since mid December and we have been
unable to stop the rise as grain is not being offered for sale while
the markets trade up the daily limit. Prices will change until
stability returns to the grain trading markets. There is no good news
in the short term. Supply will continue to shrink while demand grows
and various commodities compete for available acreage. All grains are
rising along with corn and oil seeds.
