    where in the hell do you live? I don't consider the top of White Pass to be a suburb?

    I have never had 16 inches of snow, ever.

    you must live on the 90 corridor out up in the mountains, or SR-18 past Covington somewhere....

    down here on the Penninsula the worst we've had in my lifetime is like 8 inches.... and that's very rare...

    No. People in NYC were whining that they had no food and it took the *government* days to get them water and they were "dying'. That the govt 'dropped the ball' and 'didnt care about them.' And they had plenty of notice.

    I have family all over NYC, New York State, and NJ, including the shore, not to mention almost everyone I went to high school with. NONE of them sounded like this and some DID lose alot more.

    it's like those of us who live in mild climates, like here in the PNW pay taxes to subsidize people who live in dangerprone areas and they won't even buy an 80 dollar insurance policy...
    You have no idea what you are talking about in the NY/NJ metro area.

    And the same can be said about here....building in landslide-prone areas. Building in identified earthquake zones. Who do you think will be subsidizing the millions here in the NW when 'the big one comes?'

    I wish we could send all that snow to California where it could do some good.

    Our ski resorts are closing already, in late January. We should have anywhere from four to ten feet on the ground depending on latitude and elevation, but the ground is bare in most of the Sierra.

    i feel really bad for anyone there who relies on electric space heaters for part or all of their heating.
    just make sure you have enough candle. it won't make a large room warm and cozy, but it will heat maybe up to 60 degrees depending on the space you're heating, how well it's insulated, etc. so it will keep you warm enough to survive.

    But if you ever lose your house in a natural disaster, the insurance will help you get back in a home, but not in the days immediatelly following the disaster.
    If you dont have earthquake insurance here, and you lose your home in an earthquake, you are SOL.

    Your claims are delusional.

    The people with no food and water were those who lost their homes (you know, the places where they kept their food)

    In the days right after an earthquake (or any other natural disaster) where many people lose their homes, it doesn't matter if you're insured or not. Either way, you're ****ed - it's just a matter of how ****ed you are

    Ah, you dont own your home. Well, you will be on the road with possibly hundreds of thousands of others. Good luck with the traffic and being willing to pay $800 a nite for any accomodations available...in cash.

    best trick, I learned this from driving truck, get a wide candle, cut it so its short, put it in a coffee can (like a the old tin/aluminum Yuban cans) put up 5 or 6 of those should heat a bed room in an apartment building.
    There is tons of (better) info like that on the Internet. And lots of people are alot better prepared. Your posts are pretty glib and show a rather shallow grasp of the realities of a true disaster.

    Nope. Snohomish county. 3 yrs ago. 16 inches. Less than an hr from Seattle. Had 22 inches a year or 2 before that. And not remotely...in a remote area or near a pass.

    And when I lived in Woodinville, we didnt have power for 8 days after that December windstorm. It wasnt a secret...we werent even the last to get power.
