This was the avatar I remember:

The mid to late 2000s, when all we had to worry about, as Bishop Fellay said, was the perfectly modernist pope. Who whoulda thought 2016 would be here.

The next big "date" will be Fátima, 2017, but I suspect nothing shall happen on that day. Might as well be in a state of grace and ready to go now, instead of waiting for that!

With the market acting up and Russian involvement in Syria (been quiet there lately, the diplomats are obviously involved), I'm at DEFCON 3.  If the Fed goes to QE4 (that will definitely happen by the way), and the effect is short lived, I'll bump up to DEFCON 2.  Same with military matters heating up.  If the Pope is killed (or Ratzinger), or he is declared a formal heretic, I'm going to DEFCON 1.  DEFCON 1 means cleaning out my bank accounts and converting everything to food, ammo, etc...

But right now I'm at DEFCON 3, heightened observation.

DEFCON 2 would be some preps where I don't have to commit.  Pick up some beans and wheat, get some ammo.  Nothing that really sets me back.

DEFCON 1 is full commit.
"But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:18)."

Applying your analogy/metaphor to the Heinrich household, we have assumed defcon 2.5, viz. more ammo, food prep, and water storage. And a new firearm, with another coming soon. I plan to move into a huge cache of ammo.
