It is interesting to listen to the lack of noise in my community during a snow storm.... ok so we have wee wee snow storms, none-the-less it snows and no one is driving, people are in their houses trying to stay dry and warm and when the power goes out.... the silence is earr
  2. Onto Gov. Survival....... I can only talk about Southern California, specifically Los Angeles and Los Angeles County.... after WWII we all know there was an influx in the population. Community Centers were build, new schools, Libraries, and government offices.

If buildings were built between late 40's through early 60's.. they probably have a

  4. >> We all expect natural disasters to happen...fire, tornado, earthquakes, floods, etc., and everyone needs to be prepared for these! Me? I am prepared for earthquakes! if all of the overpasses fall I will not get any food until they are cleared and if the mountains fall across the roads.. it may be a month or more before I see any way to pass to get to a town to get to food. Because it "could" happen I have made provisions to be able to live until help arrives. Fire? that would wipe outmy home and I would buy a trailer or build a sand bag house as a temporary measure... then

I have a thermostat on it... to keep it right above freezing and I cure my meat in it. It is ok, sort of works but the freezer uses so much energy even with a temperature restrictor on it that it may pay for me to buy a new/used newer large refrigerator and just keep it on coldest.
