Today we feature another picture of the San Francisco Earthquake and Fire. You can see the smoke of burning buildings in the background, and ruble from the earthquake in the streets.
I enjoyed reading your posts about your level of readiness if the grocery stores ran out of food. It really sounds like a number of you are fairly self sufficient when it comes to food. I could make it about 5 days on old stuff in the cupboard. Then, well, we eat the chickens. That gives us another 10 days. The peacocks are big, so six peacocks would take us about another 12 days. After that we would be out of food. I would love to grow our own food in a large garden, but unfortunately our house is situated on a rock, and there is only a couple of inches of top soil. Moving dirt in is a pretty expensive proposition. On the plus side, all of our neighbors raise cows, sheep, goats or pigs, so perhaps my best strategy would be to try and stay in good standing with neighbors, and have something useful to trade.
