Working in my gardens, with Shorty standing guard against zombies, is giving me time to think. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

I've considered yesterday's thoughts about blowing the I39 bridge. It wouldn't work. There are too many ways the Reapers could get here.

I have to face facts: There are only three reasons why the Farm Colonies and my little island of safety haven't been attacked by Reapers...

1) There were easier pickings. With 99% of the population dead (though still walking around), most of the 1% were scattered and vulnerable.

09:41 AM #
2) The Reapers (and apparently, most other survivors) fear this place and The Anomaly that caused the zombie plague. Perhaps rightly so.

09:44 AM #
3) Unfinished business. When I first learned of the Reapers, they were laying siege to Fort McCoy. They've been in more fights ever since.

Now, almost three years into the zompocalypse, the Reapers have grown to the point where they can defeat any foe, take anything they wish...

And, based on the propaganda we're overhearing on HAM radios, the Rapture's Reapers' insane leader, Anon, clearly does not fear anything.

I can only assume, therefore, that there has been something else that stays Anon's hand. At least, so far. I wish I knew what it was.
