    i went out into the cul de sac and saw my neighbors again, last time we saw each other was the 5.8 earthquake in january...

    of course i had a kit with battle lanterns, MRE's, glow sticks, duct tape, and 10 gallons of water.

    we sat in the driveway and played chess for 10 hours, i was the only one who had a hand crank generator radio....


    we made it, i hope markjuano and TWC are ok

    Usually when the power goes out for a length of time the teens get restless and start stealing shit , I didn't even know southern Cal had a blackout.

    those wild fires a few years ago made me realize i needed a survival kit, when the cops come to your door and tell you to get out, its a humbling experience

    my neighbors were not prepared...they all leeched off me and in turn i got some serious street cred.

    lol....$200 well spent

    Did great. Have a generator to run my house on. BBQ'd and mixed up margaritas and watched the last part of the game. I wondered who the local tv news channels thought they were broadcasting to.

    Happy to hear you boys made it. My pops came over we fired up the bar b. Got the fire pit going and was glad like Sip that we are somewhat prepared. We did unlock the Sig in case a flash mob showed up in our neighborhood. Have they id'd the Homer Simpson type fool that caused this mess?

    Ed Harris grabbed a beer with his son and watched the traffic congestion from the patio of his San Diego home until he couldn't fend off sleep any longer and had to go back into his roasting residence.

    "When I got up, my body left a big bed mark in a sweat ring," he said.




    OH THE HORROR!!!
