Judging by @Alisa’s response, I’m guessing that’s a hard NO on the coil gore. As bad as you all might think it was, it was worse. Let that be a lesson to all: Keep an emergency build kit or a couple of spare coils in your Go Bag!
While I’m on the subject, if you don’t have a Go Bag ready, please take a hour or two to do so. I would highly recommend it. Had I done so, I wouldn’t have been scrambling about like a damn chicken with it’s head cut off trying to remember what to grab! Get official copies of whatever documents you can: Birth Certificates, Wedding Licences, Auto Titles, Insurance Policies. Get a passport and toss that in there as well. In the absence of other ID, that one comes in REAL handy even if you never set foot outside of your country. Also, get a dedicated SD card and take pictures of your home and property to stash in said Go Bag. I really wish that we had this, simply so that the taking of inventory wasn’t so onerous and depressing(It’s hard to think of Every. Little. Thing when you’re in the middle of mourning the loss of your possessions) There’s a whole slew of sites that have really great ideas on what to pack, from a sidearm and ammo(If that’s your thing and it’s legal for you to do so) to simple items like over the counter pain relievers, TP and antidiarrheals. Trust me on that last one-A rampant case of rotovirus is ripping through the shelters here. Being that sick when you’re home is one thing. Being that sick when you’re evacuated? No Bueno, mis familia!
