    can you believe we had one, a new one and my dad sold it after y2k. ( this last year he finally decided we did not need it. oye!!
    we had so much y2k stuff that he decided to throw it all out. he said, well its over and the stuff I am sure in the bins is bad. he took it out to the dump and did not tell any of us for about 3 weeks. I went down to get some tuna down stars and it was gone I was flabergasted as it took me a year to collect it all. I am still like wooooooooo hoooooooo dad, whats up with that! I was mad but it was to late. now I have my own basement to store things. Before I lived in a nice apartment house but we out grew it will all the kids so I moved into my 4 bedroom home. Huge basement, huge garage, yezah I am so trying to stock up some again.

    You do what you must to be prepared. Then sometimes you need to laugh to keep from crying.

    Re: Callifornia Earthquake Could Be the Next Katrina

    I’ve noticed that California natives tend to be rather blase about earthquakes. There is a fatalistic mindset that says “oh well… if it happens, it happens”. On the other hand, non-natives tend to be the ones who stock-up on earthquake supplies and bolt everything to the walls (furniture, pets, random children). I’m a native; I’ve been trough all the big quakes. In my experience, they’re really no big deal. Of course, I haven’t been killed (obviously) or injured by one, or had my house wiped-out. Your mileage my vary.

    Just an observation....

    So uh... earthquake insurance is too expensive.
    And it is much more expensive now! It was relatively cheap before Northridge.

    And I'd like to 2nd the way FEMA handled the quake in '94. Granted we were out of power for I think 3 days and gas wasn't turned on for a week and we had to treat the water for a week or so they did a really good job IMHO at the time.
    We were 2 miles from the epicenter and had power back on that night. There was $8k of damage to my house. Do you want to guess what my deductible was? Unfortunately, it is much higher now.

    It does bother me when FEMA bales out people who haven't purchased the insurance they needed. If they are going to do that, they should at least reimburse me the premiums that I have been paying for all these years!
