Defense with the BoomStick

(Disclaimer: This post is set in a world where zombies have taken over and people live in small spots all over the world. It’s a weekly broadcast of news from around the globe and a tip to help survival.)

Another day passed that I'm still alive is all I can say really. We had a brutal showdown with this massive zombie wave that hit us hard for days now and hopefully an end is in sight. This one came out of the west; just a massive number of them and when they first hit the wall it was like a shockwave rippled through the lines. It did make lighting them all on fire a lot easier, which did a large amount of damage, but in the process some trees were lit on fire as well making the situation worse. We lucked out though as a huge snowstorm came through and froze the zombies and put out the small forest fire that was growing. Now for the news.

I mentioned the huge snowstorm giving people a chance to move about in the world with less fear as zombies are freezing in spots unable to move. Supply gathering has been going a lot smoother and easier for survivors living in all the places where this snow has hit hard. Taking advantage to build up more walls and better defenses also has never been easier to get done except for the snow slowing them down a little too. Best method to combat the cold is to work in teams and alternate who is out working to avoid getting frostbite.

In light of the snow, the tip today will be about cold weather tactics to help you survive.

Since this big freeze has hit travel is a lot easier with zombies freezing in place and it’s safe to use fire. Still to be safe first you are going to have dig a hole in the snow and ground to make your fire. This part is the hard part, but with a good shovel you can get it done and build your fire down in there. With all this snow you can build snow walls to help protect you from the wind and any zombie that might still be up and walking.

Provided the snow can pack densely then you can build them into bricks or make just huge piles, packing it as you pile to make the wall. Hunting can also come easier during the snow with no zombies lurking to kill you as you do it. With all this snow you should also be collecting the clean snow and storing it in buckets, barrels or whatever you can for the fresh water you can get when the snow melts.

That’s all I have for today with more work to do around here. Until next week keep surviving.
