You do know that you can trot on down to WorstBuy and get a $40 LG tracfone. And yes, it does actually make phone calls. And text. And all that other crap. Is it limited as compared to your $300 smartphone? Sure. But its only $40.
Bottom 1/2 of the garage fridge is frozen water.
Always plenty of foodstuffs around
Propane and charcoal grills to cook on
In the event of actually having to bug out, one of the laptops and the main USB secondary drive that normally lives attached to the house HTPC/server. In addition to a few things in cloud storage.
Where I live (mid Atlantic) leaving the car(s) outside is very, very common. So common that many people convert the actual garage into actual living space. Removing the garage door and walling it off. Adding insulation and flooring. Man cave, or workshop/toolroom.
When I bought this house, I had a minivan. Kids, etc. There was zero stuff in the single car garage, besides the water heater, washer, dryer. Which is where that stuff lives in this market. Day 1, I opened the garage door, pulled the minivan in..."OK, this isn't going to work well"
lawnmower, bikes, tools....or the car. One or the other. The cars, being hardshelled devices, survive outside much better than all the other things.
The main problem with all electric cars, so far, is needing to have a personal garage to park it in to recharge. If I live in apartment, I can't charge it. If the garage of my single family home is otherwise taken up with 'stuff', I can't plug it in.
Eventually that issue will change. But for today, how can I buy an all electric if I have no where to plug it in? Even if it were sold for $300, I still cannot plug it in!
