Money, Moolah, Dinero, Cash
In the event of a major disaster, the grid will probably be out for a significant period of time. This, of course, means that ATM machines and credit card readers will not be operational. Because of this, you need some cold, hard cash tucked away in a secure, easily accessible location.
How much cash? This is a delicate issue that has a lot to do with your comfort zone. For good reasons, many of us don’t feel comfortable keeping $1,000 under the mattress, but enough money to see you through one week is a good rule of thumb.

Plans for a 70-foot broadband LTE tower in Del Rey have been cancelled, Councilmember Mike Bonin announced on June 9th. Mr. Bonin’s full comments can be found at
Your Residents Association (which received a gracious nod in Mr. Bonin’s statement) applauds this decision, as do the more than forty Del Reyans who attended our last Board Meeting to voice opposition to the plan to location of these towers in a residential neighborhood.
The DRRA extends a special thank-you to Amber and Jaimie Trueblood for their efforts in mobilizing the neighborhood. Community involvement of this kind can and does make a difference.
