Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Question: Is this their effort to get funds to people who haven't gotten them from the first round of stimulus payments, or a whole new thing? This is from the first stimulus package. The second direct stimulus package one has not been drafted much less passed yet. Factoid: The first one was ~$2.5 ...

Re: When the rich become preppers, it's time to worry

I'm not sure that a bunker is a viable long-term solution for many of these millionaires. Sure, it might work for a year, but are they planning for after that?

I'd be looking more at soft skills - learn how to blend in, how to talk to regular folk without them thinking "they ain't from 'round here."

Re: Portable, (near-)universal UVC / ozone producing germicidal station

Would something like this work for disinfecting money (cash & checks, some in paper envelopes)?

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Texas is back open (sort of). There's a schedule to what can reopen and how, so it's not totally back to 100 percent normal, but at least some semblance of normalcy is happening. The first wave of reopenings includes restaurants for dine in patrons (with some restrictions), salons/barbers (which is...

Re: Hail, Hail ice rocks

We live in west Texas. Hail damage probably happens every other year around here. Some of the storms spawn tornadoes, some don’t. Roofs are a 5-10 year thing, you plan to have to replace every 10 years due to hail damage, not every 25-30 when the roof wears out. A lot of cars got totaled last year, ...

Re: Keeping Busy, Isolation/lockdown projects

I know it's kind of whiny, but keeping busy is the least of my worries. I'm so busy that it's kind of ridiculous. That isn't really helped by the fact that my husband is working from home more and starts coming up with "projects" - while the garden is mostly my thing, he decided that we needed to pl...
