All you need at ground level are steel frames and 5/8” plywood. We’re doing those now. Pictures soon.


Yes, we costed that and also the roll down metal shutters out as alternatives. Our neighbours for the most part put up temporary plywood sheet covers each time they get a storm warning, but we will be stuck up here so needed something in place throughout. And of course, we have zero control over debris from construction projects surrounding us.

Where exactly would one go with their trailer, if it's the end of the world? What would they fuel the vehicle they're pulling it with if there is no gas or diesel and the electrical grid is non-functional? These people think real life is like some Mad Max movie.

In an end of the world as we know it scenario, if anyone survives, it will be the people who have knowledge and skills to try to grow food, to know which plants are edible and medicinal, who are adept at fashioning things into something else, those who are accustomed living simply, and those who work with others for the common good, not the people who hoarded and have an every man for himself attitude.

This is where this discussion belongs:

S,

Read the words GFE. The possible human addition to 15000MM of sea level rise is at most 200MM over the last 100 years.

It turns out that “The terrible Climate Change Induced Wildfires” in Australia actually cooled the ocean, extended the La Niñia and caused massive rain falls in both Australia and the US. One must wonder if the wildfires in Canada will do the same? One also must wonder if the living things on the earth have more experience and a far longer view on dealing with change than do those who you support.

Also again, our differences are over my belief that the actions suggested by those who you support can’t address the root source of the problem. The current sorry state of SFO as an example of that.

That not whether the climate is changing is the issue GFE.

If that really is “your picture” you have in fact achieved your stated goal.

GFE? What do you think that means? It's a term used by female sex workers to indicate they are willing to act as if they are a girlfriend to a john.
WTF is wrong with you?

Mood: Have Baja Fever

This has been the coolest and wettest June in San Diego I can remember, living here for 65 years!
It was raining this morning!! It never rained after May 1... until November or December, except for a freak tropical storm coming up from Baja!
Global Cooling, I tell you all! LOL

Seriously, it is just unusual (for us) weather, not climate change (which happens over hundreds to thousands of years). Who's to say that the past 64 years was the 'odd' weather and that this cool and wet May & June in the norm? We need to see hundreds of years weather reports to really know what in 'normal' or not. Since we have been scientifically monitoring weather for not much over 125 years and measuring seal level with satellites for maybe 30-40 years, there is just not much data on what is 'normal' weather.

I can tell you this, warmer weather is a lot better for humans than colder! Crop and food production, health and happiness, and with those you have more thinking time to be creative!

Your idiotic statements just keep coming.
No, 110 degree + heat, which is being experienced in lots of places, is not "better for humans", it results in the opposite of health and happiness- people die or end up in the hospital at those extreme temps. I suggest you ask the people who are experiencing 107+ degree relentless heat in many places all over the world right now if it's leading to "health and happiness and "more time to think".

Or are you under the impression that everyone on the planet has a nice air-conditioned house to hang out in, and an air-conditioned car to drive around? Maybe it's just fine with you that those who don't have those things suffer?

Nor do crops grow properly at those temps and with drought conditions that are so prevalent now.

I doubt that "more thinking time" would ever result in you coming up with anything but more blind, absurd nonsense.

S,

Leave it to you to bring sex into the discussion. “GFE” in the pre wireless days meant after hoisting an important message fire a gun for emphasis. Like an exclamation mark after a sentence which you don’t like.

Your are myopic. Your experience of local conditions in San Diego north county is not representative of the conditions experienced elsewhere in the world.

It meant Good Faith Estimate to me.

But leave it to you to head straight for the gutter. I'm now wondering how you knew that interpretation. :O

Speaking of the Canadian wild fires, of course all the Climate Crisis exaggerators latched onto that to campaign for more funds and power to be given to them.

But they totally ignored the fact that Canada, just like California, has been woefully neglect in controlled burns. Nor did they tell you that the Co2 emissions from the fires have likely wiped out all of the reduction gains they have made in the last 10 years.

Mother Nature is more powerful than Government. :light:

You all should read more.

“The Aubrey-Maturin series consists of 20 books written by pseudo-Irish author Patrick O'Brian (born Richard Patrick Russ). The series takes place during The Napoleonic Wars.”

Jack Aubrey uses the phrase Fire a Gun (for emphasis) often.

And your point is? "Fire a Gun doesn't translate to the acronym GFE.

I had never heard that acronym before and there's no need to "wonder" how I knew that interpretation nor make stupid inferences- Google it- it's the interpretation that comes up first and by far the most.
