Response to marble falls (Reply #4)

Mon Feb 22, 2021, 03:07 PM

5. My wife questions why I like to keep a chest freezer of food, cases of bottled water, an old

Coleman camp stove and sleeping bags in the garage. I should sell these "kits" in TX I guess. TX obviously worse than most, but government reaction that is meaningful is always at least 3 days away in these instances and I would not be surprised here in WA state if the event were a major earthquake if it wouldn't be two weeks. Hard to move supplies and equipment when your bridges are all down and the roads have 20 feet of subsidence in places. And your insurance company won't be on site the day after with a contractor to clean up the mess and fix things either. Plan accordingly and unless its family or good friends and neighbors you can count on, assume no one has your back. Maybe we'll learn from things like this and Covid, but that does not seem to be our pattern.
