Hello Americans!

Can I suggest that now is the time to come together as a group and start working on ways to minimize the effects on this weather and weather or events like it in the future?

The greatest weapon you have just now is shared information. There are those amongst you that know of ways to create simple but effective insulation and how to utilize other survival techniques and there are many amongst you that know about the internet and websites.

Y ou have become dependent on others to make plans and to provide for you, now is the time to relearn how to think for yourselves!

. Da bears! But I can confirm, bloody cold in the Chicagoland area, speaking for the northern burbs.
