So it's coming.. now we need a collective thread on the best way to handle it.
My thoughts are if you are not leaving your area, and by the looks of it leaving won't really help, what measures are needed to keep safe.

Can we get a sticky or something with safeguards? average amounts of supplies to have on hand, etc?

Sorry if this was already posted it's been a chore keeping atop all these recent threads.

Stock up on some necklaces that are like candy necklaces only with hardboiled eggs instead of candy.

Re: So it's coming.. now we need a collective thread on the best way to handle it.
I agree with you OP. This has far-reaching, frightening consequences, potentially, beyond just the immediate fallout fears.

I'm not sure about the best way to handle it. If you don't have a good supply of food and bottled water yet, might be a good idea to get some... probably most people on this site are well past this point. Otherwise, what can we do? The scary thing about radiation is how widespread it can be, how long it can last, and how invisible it is. Take a few elementary precautions, keep an eye on the news and the radiation monitoring sites, and pray. I am not a Christian -- not even a monotheist -- but I am praying, hard.

Some people on the West Coast (I'm in Northern California) are bugging out. That's a personal choice. My bug-out spot is, unfortunately, not any safer, radiationally speaking, than my current location. So I'm going to stay where I am and go on with my normal life. I'll probably add a few more preps in the upcoming days, but as I'm pretty poor I can't do all that much. A few extra gallons of water, a few more cans.

Whatever you decide you need to do, best of luck to you.

Our options seem grim

but we just stepped into universal consciousness on the 9th of this month so it's no surprise this video on how to heal cancer using sound and intent just sprouted up.

it's time to reacclimate ourselves with our inner technology hidden from ourselves for so long

So the video has some strange aspects in it which I found outrageously funny but this video DOES deliver. Amazingly you see in real time cancer being eliminated in a real life scenario in UNDER 3 MINUTES.

Im on the West coast in Van and if it gets scary and they say its really really gonna make it here in a bad way I'm going to Manitoba, I know some people up that way,very rural area up around Gimli. If it makes it's way there then hell I have no where else to go but north towards Church Hill.

Re: So it's coming.. now we need a collective thread on the best way to handle it.
A couple suggestions:

#1
Call your local pottery shops, and see if anyone has buckets of clay slurry they'd like to get rid of. The stuff is usually a big problem for them... the buckets of slurry weigh a ton, and there's not much the potters want to use the stuff for. They're often grateful if someone will pick it up and dispose of it for them. If radiation arrives, clay is a great way to eliminate toxins from the skin. Each day, take a few cups of clay slurry, coat yourself in a mud batch, sit for 20 minutes. Rinse and repeat at least once daily.

#2
Buy some extra spouting or PVC pipe (or whatever), and direct your roof's rain catchment system away from you... away from the house. Dig trenches or do whatever you must to move rain catchment away, towards the corners of your residence and gardens.

Godspeed.

1.Do not drink water that is from an open source such as a lake or reservoir.

2.Stock up on food and I would stop eating any "fresh" fruits and vegetables soon.If you need meat from grazing animals stock up now.I would try and get at least 2 years worth.

3.Get a PUR water pitcher.Unlike Brita ones they actually filter to .02 microns and have a carbon core for heavy metals.

4.HEPA air filters.They will not save you from breathing it all,but they will reduce radioactive dust in your home.Seal up any windows or places that air comes in.

5.Animals.I hope they do not need to go outside,they will drag radioactivity back in with them.

6.This one is very important.Stay out of the RAIN! The rain will have MUCH higher concentrations of radioactivity than being outside on a clear day.Think of the water as concentrating radioactivity,plus water helps it pass through your skin.

7.Set an area to remove shoes and outer clothing before you enter your home.The idea is to drag as little radioactivity into your home as possible.

8.The levels that are falling most likely will not be an immediate danger to anyone.It is the long term accumulation you need to worry about.Do things to limit your LONG term exposure.

9.This disaster will go on most likely for months and months.Take steps now to reduce your total exposure and limit what you bring into your home.The less you bring in and live with daily the better off you will be.Again the exposure levels will not be all that high,but total accumulation in peoples systems will start to add up.So just do common sense things to limit your exposure.

If levels do actually get higher,none of the above would actually hurt you.If the levels are so low none of the above is actually needed,at least you will lower the pollution and pollen in your home.

Re: So it's coming.. now we need a collective thread on the best way to handle it.
Finally, a time for plastic and duct tape. Just some ideas, and they may be all wrong, but a plan helps relieve stress.

Probably the first thing would be to determine whether to leave, or shelter in place. These suggestions are for sheltering in place.

Seal all areas that let air into the house. Around windows, doors, heat registers, air conditioners. Close dampers on fireplace or woodstoves.

Put as much mass as possible between you and the outdoors. The more, the better. Close windows, doors, and stay in the interior of the house, rather than an outer wall.

Have food, a way to prepare it, and water. Lots of water. Water for drinking, cooking, washing, and toilet flushing. White trash liners for lining a bucket for a toilet if needed. Bleach for cleaning and disinfecting.

Have at least an N 95 mask if you have to go outside. Leave clothes outside the door in a sealed bag. Wash when you come in.

Have flashlights,lamp and oil, matches,manual can opener, radio, pens, paper, batteries, cards, books,paper plates and cups, hand sanitizers, trash bags and medicines. Supportive medicines for rehydration and diarreah. Burn Free, or an equally good burn ointment.

Give everyone a job to do. Busy people are less likely to panic. Children especially will need to be kept busy. Crayons, paper, macaroni to put on a string, sorting playing cards by number, color, pattern. Children are happy with simple things as long as they have a confident parent with them.

Don't give in to a deafeatist attitude. Time, distance, and shielding is a friend, and the longer you can shelter,stay as far away as possible, and put mass between you and the fallout, the more likely you are to survive with minimal health issues. Try to keep up your spirits, and those of the people with you. Be thankful, and remember the less fortunate, and count your blessings.

Adding* Also if you have been out when you get home immediately remove all clothing and shower.What good is it to try and keep the dust out of your home,if you just go in the cloths you have had on all day and plop down to watch American Idol.Put your cloths in the washer before you shower.The reason being you do not want to touch them after you shower.After your shower run the washer....watch American Idol or Obama spew about how great life is.Repeat.
