Can you reuse an oil tank for a DIY project? Let’s get prepared for Hurricanes and wildfires!

Eric Goranson and Caroline Blazovsky start out with a DIY project gone wrong. These is a trend on social media where people are using old indoor heating oil tanks to convert into a BBQ or smoker. We dive into this subject quickly and discuss what might go wrong with this plan.

Then Eric G and Caroline B discuss landscaping issues from Creosote in railroad ties to mold and fungus that is in Caroline’s own landscape mulch. All of these can create issues around the outside and even inside your home.

Eric and Caroline jump into getting ready for a disaster. It could be a hurricane, a flood, a wildfire, or earthquake. What have you done to get prepared? Do you have food and water put away?

All this and MORE as we discuss Portland Oregon and how they won the best Pizza in America from Bloomberg.
