Safe travels in the rain. Today would have been the day, as beautiful as it was!
Insufficient “heads up” time. A neighbor who would have taken advantage of the convoy didn’t learn of it until it was mostly over. I suggest that you always keep a month’s food and supplies on hand during the winter. Plus books! Read about the 19th century Big Sur residents. They didn’t have to go to town for months.
I agree re lack of notice, but you know, we need to be responsible for ourselves and help each other as a community. It is not healthy or same to count on others to rescue us or bail us out when Mother Nature acts up.
