I thought I would send a note in case we lose internet. The storm only hit this morning. It did cancel an important interview MrsC5 had today. Hopefully we get another.

Prepping included.... nothing. We are Adapted. OK. We charged up the batteries. I really should have got beer though. :evil4: No beer for C5 this round.

Maybe I should post Adapters part 4... to give snow locked people something to read. Hum

Global warming still happening in Tejas.. It'll be 87F on Friday.

Maybe I can get the dock finished, anyway. I was only able to work on it one day last weekend due to the bitter (#sarcasm) 40F cold Friday through Sunday.I didn't get close to finished.

So its still coming down here we are up to 12 inches. Fossil fuels sure help with the clean up. 45 minutes of snowblower work and its as if it never happened. Less than 2 litres of fuel burnt. A well tuned up snowblower is a good prep. I want to gasify it but maybe ill find an older one to experiment on first.

If its important then try something, fail, disect, learn from it, try again, and again and again until it kills you or you succeed.

  I just skimmed your Adaptation part 4, and must say you have put a lot of thought into this preparing for the real collapse of society. I can envision so many different scenarios that could bring us down. I think that civil unrest will be the first wave of collapse, a massive interruption of BAU. Then the implementation of Marshall law.  Then rationing to those who comply, death to those who don't.
  Personally i do not prep at all. But I have farmed for 30 years, and live on 23 acres in the forest, and broad growing fields. I don't worry about death, because death is almost god.

If he won't upgrade his Mercedes to a 4WD model, K-Dog should get one of those!

if it's like Vancouver the whole city just stops and waits for 2 days knowing the rains will wash it all away.

That would normally be the case in Seattle, but I think K-Dog has been trapped for almost a full week now.

Very impressive, David.

Living in Virginia we have no need of snowblowers, and even a snow shovel is overkill. Except when you need one. But on a trip to my wife's home town of Buffalo so,me years ago, a January snow dumped 15 inches on the city. I get up early and went to put the coffee on, and the streets are already cleared. Buffalo has it down; they are pros.

Of course then the denizens have to dig out their walks, driveways, and cars. This is when  I learned that if I lived in Buffalo, owning a snowblower would be a sacrament. This also illustrates why so many Buffalonians have large families. More youthful hands to grab shovels and do the shoveling. And one of the happy consequences of indoor sports during long winters.

I don't buy new cars.  Never have.  Maybe the guy across the street will sell me his.  One way to meet him.

I called the city about getting the cul-de-sac plowed but I was told only streets get cleaned.  I have to shovel sixty feet of city road so I can go to work tomorrow.

Yes but not a whole week.  Five days so far.

Buy a "Pre-Owned" one from the Mercedes Dealer like your current ones.  They have been making that SUV for a few years.

Some of the SUV's are made in the US, and the quality is not as good as the ones from der Deustcheland, like the E Class cars.
