I've had good results with Castrol motor oil. My last truck had a really
nasty piston rod knock, and that's the only brand that quieted the rod knock
for longer than two days.
NYS winter storm warning, from 10 PM Saturday, and all through Sunday. 12 to
24 inches predicted. Fortunately, snow and wind. I'm not expecting any power
outs. I hope........
Lucky me has a genny, and a couple gals of gas to hold me over. Just in

Yea. I've never understood all the panic grocery shopping when a big
storm is coming. Silly stuff like bread and milk. Geez, my pantry always
has cans of evaporated milk, and plenty of flour if I want bread. I
figure my normal pantry stock could easily sustain me (and my cat) for
at least 60 days in an emergency. The only thing I ever do when a storm
is coming is make sure my fuel reserves are full.
most people lack more than a day or two in emergency food supplies,
depending entirely on the close by grocery store. which depends on
daily or twice daily deleveries.
grocery stores DONT have a big stocroom in the back
Are you kidding? Most middle/upper class homes have multiple cans of
soup, pasta, cold cereal, snacks etc. Don't forget frozen goods.
Remember, in most areas roads become passable within 12-24 hours of a
snowfall. People who cant eat soup/cereal etc in a pinch for a day or
so are too spoiled and need to live in North Korea or Darfur for a
while. True I cant ALWAYS eat what I want when snowed in but there is
plenty to eat. I laugh at those who think they will be homebound for
6 weeks in NY/NJ metro area.due to snow.
Living in western NY, the ice storms we've had, I've been able to travel
within a day or two. Many stores open back up. I did spend ice storm 1991
bringing hot food to some folks who were without power They had the travel
advisory, but I managed to get around in a rear drive Dodge van.

Thanks for your thoughts.
We came back on today. Still have lots of folks on generators, we
pass them around as power comes back. Oklahoma City School
District and many others have been closed Monday through Friday
with snow coming.
Rumor has it that FEMA will not be buying or reimbursing personal
use generators or chainsaws.
