ApocEclipse Prep | Local News | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

ApocEclipse Prep

Everything you need to get started

How to prepare for the ApocEclipse:

  • Stock up on groceries, water, gas and beer early so stores can restock.
  • Pick up prescriptions and medical supplies in advance.
  • Be ready to lose touch with the world. Cell phone and Internet service could crash.
  • Hit the ATM before the crowds arrive. Either the Internet will break or they will run out of cash.
  • Don't schedule doctor or dental appointments.
  • Conserve water both for thirsty tourists and to fight the almost inevitable fire.
  • Unplug unnecessary appliances so there's enough electricity to go around.
  • Telecommute on Eclipse Day or ride your bike to work.
  • Practice your breathing exercises. This is going to take a lot of patience.
