Re: “Massive Mudslide Envelops Hwy. 101

The freeway does not go "nowhere". Many folks live here in this region. And use the 101 to travel up to Oregon. I appreciate the hard work the people at Cal Trans do each and every day.

Re: “Survival!

We appreciate the article on "Survival".
A basic rule to go by is to use what you store and store what you use.
And be private about what you store up, much like you would with regards to your personal finances.
In researching disaster preparations we found some great websites.
Some have a definite slant of taking care of yourself and not depending on the government, Red Cross, or FEMA to "save" you.
If you are super broke, then just double up. Not all of us can go out and buy a years worth of food. When you shop, instead of one jar of sauce or can of tuna, buy two. Hit the yard sales. It is amazing how many folks are selling their low tech food preservation tools.
If you google y2k, you will find some great old sites that have practical and doable plans on how to be ready for most types of diasters. Even the FEMA site has recommended more than two weeks of food stored in case of a pandemic flu outbreak. The most important preparation you can make is to have a sound mind and clear judgement when thinking about and implementing your family's survial strategies. Don't be afraid to talk about the what ifs. Knowledge is power and strength.
