The deforestation of California in recent wildfires has led to catastrophic mudslides there, as evidenced from this before and after set of photos from BPEarthwatch, below.  The landslides have also disabled the main operations of the Union Pacific Railroad there; see photo set 2.  Photo 3 shows the force with which automobiles have been smashed into boulders and crushed by trees.  Helicopters and other large equipment are being brought in to dig people out of buried houses.  The 4th photo set depicts a major road washed out, leaving stranded 18-wheel trucks that are barely visible in the background.  Added all together with the wildfires, there has been a major economic impact to this area, though much of the population there is economically resilient:

Arctic Front Progresses Towards the Eastern U.S.
A sharp arctic frontal boundary will continue moving eastward towards the eastern U.S. into this weekend impacting travel. Significant freezing rain, accumulating snow, and gusty winds producing wind chills can be expected. Ahead of the front, heavy rain and warm temperatures may cause flooding; and, in portions of New England, heavy rain, snowmelt, and ice jams may produce rapid river rises

...Heavy snow possible from the Ohio Valley into the Northeast...

...Rain/freezing rain/sleet possible Central Appalachians to the
Northeast...

...Heavy rain possible along New England Coast...


A strong front over the eastern portion of the country will move eastward
off the Eastern Seaboard by Saturday afternoon.
The system will produce
rain with possible embedded thunderstorms over the Southern
Mid-Atlantic/Southeast Coast through early Saturday morning.  Rain will
also develop over parts of the Northeast to the Central/Southern
Appalachians that will end south to north along the East Coast by Saturday
evening.  The system will also produce snow from parts of the Tennessee
Valley into the Lower Great Lakes that will move into the Central
Appalachians into the Northeast by Saturday morning.  The snow will be
heavy at times.  The snow will start to wind down on Saturday afternoon
from the Central Appalachians into the Northern Mid-Atlantic and ending
over the Northeast by Saturday evening.  In addition, along the rain/snow
line, a band of rain/freezing rain/sleet will develop from the Central
Appalachians into the Northeast that will moce eastward to the Northern
Mid-Atlantic into Northern New England by Saturday morning.  The
rain/freezing rain/sleet will slowly end, again south to north, over the
Northeast by late afternoon on Saturday.  In the wake of the storm, light
lake effect snow will develop downwind from Great Lakes winding down by
Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, onshore flow will stream moisture into the Northwest through
Saturday evening.  The onshore flow will aid in producing rain over parts
of the Pacific Northwest with snow at higher elevations through Saturday
evening.  Additionally, a front extending along the east side of the
Rockies and cold high pressure building into the Plains will aid in
producing snow over parts of the Northern/Central Rockies into parts of
the Central Plains through late Friday evening.  A wave of low pressure
over the Northern Rockies, on Saturday morning, will move southeastward to
the Central High Plains by Sunday morning.  Snow will develop over the
Northern Rockies on Saturday that will move southeastward into the
Central/Northern Plains overnight Saturday into Sunday.

Yowbarb Note: This forecast and video won't tell the whole story. Please be aware there could suddenly be dangerous ice in your area even if you are in the southern US, so PLS check your local weather daily as Winter Storm INGA storm progresses. This is not expected to be a major snow maker but there will be sudden changes such as the amount of ice on southern roads.

weather.com

Story Highlights
Snow and gusty winds will sweep through the Midwest into Monday.
A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain will also impact the South Monday night-Tuesday.
Some snowfall is expected along the East Coast, but a powerful coastal storm is not expected.
Winter Storm Inga will bring snow to the Midwest and East early this week as portions of the South face a slippery mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain.

Tropical Weather Discussion
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
705 PM EST Mon Jan 15 2018

Tropical Weather Discussion for North America, Central America
Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, northern sections of South
America, and Atlantic Ocean to the African coast from the
Equator to 32N. The following information is based on satellite
imagery, weather observations, radar and meteorological analysis.

Based on 1800 UTC surface analysis and satellite imagery through
2330 UTC.

...SPECIAL FEATURE...

...Gale Warning in the Gulf of Mexico...


A strong cold front entering the NW Gulf Tue will reach from the
Florida panhandle to near 26N91W and to just N of Tampico Tue
evening, and move SE of the area on Wed. Northerly winds to gale
force are possible near Tampico and Veracruz Tue night and Wed,
and frequent gusts to gale force are expected over the NW waters
Tue and Tue night. Strong high pressure will follow the front.

Please read the latest NHC High Seas Forecast under AWIPS/WMO
headers MIAHSFAT2/FZNT02 KNHC, and the latest NHC Offshore
Waters Forecast, MIAOFFNT4/FZNT24 KNHC, for more details.

...MONSOON TROUGH/ITCZ...

The monsoon trough enters the Atlantic Ocean through Liberia,
Africa and continues to 03N18W. The ITCZ extends from 03N18W to
02N30W to 03N35W to the Equator at 50W into NE Brazil. Scattered
moderate convection is within 90-110 nm N of ITCZ axis between
35W and 40W.

...DISCUSSION...

...GULF OF MEXICO..
.

High pressure over the SE CONUS extends a ridge across the Gulf
region, producing mainly gentle to moderate NE-E winds, except
fresh northerly winds in the SE Gulf. Stratocumulus clouds over
the Gulf waters are more concentrated in the southern Gulf.
Persistent low clouds are banked up against the Sierra Madre
Oriental in Mexico. The ridge will slowly move E tonight. Fresh
to locally strong N to NE winds will persist E of 85W through
Tue night. A strong cold front will enter the NW Gulf Tue
afternoon followed by a strong high pressure system. Please see
Special Features section for more details.

...CARIBBEAN SEA...

A stationary front extends from eastern Cuba across Jamaica to
the coast of Panama near 09N82W.
Scattered showers are noted in
association with the frontal boundary S of 17N. Stratocumulus
clouds are observed behind the front over the NW Caribbean.
Patches of low level clouds with embedded showers elsewhere E of
the front are forecast to weaken and dissipate by Tue evening. A
recent ASCAT pass indicates fresh to strong N winds behind the
front, with strong northerly winds near the coast of Nicaragua.
Moisture associated with the remnants of the front will drift
westward Tue into Wednesday, increasing the likelihood of
showers over Central America and the NW Caribbean. Otherwise,
strong winds will pulse near the NW Colombia coast each night
through Fri night. Large NE swell will maintain seas above 8 ft
in the tropical Atlc waters until Tue evening.

...HISPANIOLA...

Relatively dry weather with partly cloudy skies and isolated
showers will prevail for the next couple of days. A surface
trough passing N of Puerto Rico will produce little convection.

...ATLANTIC OCEAN...

A stationary front extends from 31N70W across the Bahamas to
eastern Cuba near 21N76W. Strong N to NE winds W of the front
will gradually diminish through Tue as the front weakens. A
strong cold front will move off the SE U.S. coast on Wed, then
weaken as it reaches from near 27N65W to the SE Bahamas by Thu
evening, then become a westward moving trough over the far SE
waters Fri. Strong high pres behind the front will bring strong
N to NE winds and building seas NE of the Bahamas on Thursday.

High pressure dominates the remainder of the basin to the
African coast.
The most recent satellite-derived wind data
indicated a large area of fresh to strong trades from 20N-31N
between 20W-60W. A surface trough associated with an upper-level
low extends from 29N64W to 23N64W.
Fresh to locally strong E-SE
winds are NE of the trough due to the pressure gradient between
it and the strong mid-Atlantic ridge. A band of showers is well
east of the trough, and covers the waters from 20N-22N between
45W-50W, and from 21N-25N between 50W-57W. Another surface
trough is SE of another upper-level low centered near 27N42W
.

Scattered moderate and isolated strong convection associated
with this system is found from 26N-31N between 35W- 43W.

...There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms over parts of Eastern
Texas and the Lower Mississippi Valley...

...Heavy snow possible from the Central Plains to the Upper Mississippi
Valley and over the Cascades...

...Rain/freezing rain possible from the Central Plains into the Upper
Great Lakes and into Northern New England...

...Heavy rain possible over parts of the Pacific Northwest/Northern
California and Northern New England Coast...

A storm over the Central Plains will lift northeastward to the Great Lakes
by Tuesday.  The system will produce snow over parts of the Central
Rockies that will end overnight Sunday.  Snow will also develop over the
Central Plains, on Sunday evening, that will expand into Upper Mississippi
Valley/Upper Great Lakes by Monday morning continuing into Tuesday
morning.  The snow will be heavy at times over the Central Plains
overnight Sunday and over parts of the Upper Mississippi Valley on Monday
into Monday evening.  Overnight Monday, the snow will stop over the
Central Plains as the snow moves into the Middle Mississippi Valley and
Western Ohio Valley.  On Monday afternoon into evening, snow will develop
over parts of Northern New England continuing into Tuesday.

In addition, rain will develop over parts of the Middle Mississippi Valley
into the Great Lakes on Sunday evening that will expand into the Ohio
Valley/Lower Great Lakes by Monday morning.   The rain will expand into
Southern New England by Monday evening and into the Northern Mid-Atlantic
overnight Monday.  In the transition zone between the rain and snow,
rain/freezing rain will develop in bands from the Central Plains into the
Great Lakes, on Sunday evening into Monday, and into New England overnight
Monday into Tuesday.

Additionally, showers and thunderstorms will develop over parts of the
Southern Plains into the Lower Mississippi Valley on Sunday evening
advancing to the Tennessee Valley/Central Gulf Coast by Monday morning.
By Monday evening, the showers and thunderstorms will move to parts of the
Ohio Valley southward to the Eastern Gulf Coast and to parts of the
Mid-Atlantic into the Southeast by Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, upper-level energy will move inland over the Pacific Northwest
moving eastward to the Northern Plains by Tuesday.  The system will
produce rain and higher elevation snow over parts of the Pacific
Northwest/Northern California that will move inland to the Northern
Intermountain Region/Northern Rockies by Tuesday morning.  The area of
snow will be reduced in areal coverage overnight Monday into Tuesday due
to the lack of moisture.  In the wake of the energy, onshore flow will aid
in producing rain and higher elevation snow over parts of the Pacific
Northwest through late Monday night as the low-level flow become parallel
to the coast, likewise, overnight Monday.

...A series of storms system arriving in off the Pacific Ocean will keep
much of the West unsettled with more rain and snow...

...Showers and thunderstorms to arrive across the Gulf Coast states and
Southeast this weekend...

...Milder temperatures arriving across the East as colder air dives down
across the Upper Midwest...

High pressure initially focused along the Eastern Seaboard will gradually
advance east and offshore
by this weekend which will allow for warmer
southerly winds to return across the Eastern U.S. out ahead of a cold
front dropping southeast across the Midwest. Afternoon high temperatures
will largely be above average for late January with temperatures ranging
from the 40s across southern portions of the Northeast, 50s to low 60s
over the Mid-Atlantic, and into the 60s over the Southeast. Florida will
be the warmest with temperatures well into the 70s. Much of the central
and eastern U.S. will be dry through the end of week, however by Saturday
and Sunday, the aforementioned cold front will gradually be crossing the
Gulf Coast states and aiming for the Southeast which will bring a
substantial increase in clouds and a good threat of showers and
thunderstorms which will be capable of producing locally heavy rainfall.

In behind the cold front settling southeast across the Midwest and Plains,
temperatures will turn much colder and trending to near or below normal.
The coldest temperatures will be across the Upper Midwest where high
temperatures by Sunday will be in the teens to near 20 degrees.
Precipitation chances will mainly be confined to areas of the lower and
middle Mississippi Valley and through the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes in
association with the passage of the cold front where a broken axis of rain
showers are expected.

A majority of the West Coast, Great Basin and Intermountain region will
remain in a wet pattern as the current storm system that is moving inland
and bringing widespread rain and snow is expected to be replaced by
another storm system by later Friday night and Saturday with a focused
impact on the Pacific Northwest and northern Rockies. This will bring
colder temperatures and a renewed surge of Pacific moisture for heavy
rains over the coastal ranges and significant snowfall for the higher
elevations, including the Cascades and favored terrain of the northern
Rockies including the Sawtooth, Bitterroots and Tetons. Additional
snowfall accumulations going through the weekend will be on the order of 1
to 3 feet locally, with the heaviest amounts expected over the Washington
Cascades.

...Heavy rain possible over the Central Gulf Coast and Coastal
Carolinas/Northeastern Florida...
 
...Heavy rains possible over the Olympic Peninsula...

...Heavy snow over the Northern Cascades...

...Snow over the Northern Rockies...
 
A front extending from the Great Lakes southwestward to the Southern
Plains will move eastward to off the Northeast/Northern Mid-Atlantic Coast
by Sunday evening while remaining over parts of the Southern Mid-Atlantic
into the Southeast/Eastern Gulf Coast also by Sunday evening.  Moisture
from the Western Gulf of Mexico will pool along the boundary aiding in the
development of rain from Western/Central Gulf Coast to the Western Ohio
Valley/Middle Mississippi Valley that will move eastward and expand
northward into the Lower Great Lakes to the Central/Western Gulf Coast by
Saturday evening.  The rain will be heavy at times over the Central Gulf
Coast on Saturday.  As the front continues to move eastward, the rain will
move off most of the Northeast Coast by Sunday evening.  Likewise, the
rain along the southern half of the boundary will move eastward into the
Southern Mid-Atlantic and the Southeast by Sunday evening, too.  Overnight
Saturday into Sunday morning, the rain will end over the Central/Western
Gulf Coast.

Meanwhile, a plume of moisture will stream into the Pacific
Northwest/Northern California through to Sunday evening while the axis of
moisture moves northward into Southwestern Canadian Coast.  The moisture
will aid in producing rain and higher elevation snow over the Pacific
Northwest/Northern California with snow extending eastward over parts of
the Northern Rockies through Sunday morning.  As the moisture axis moves
northward, the rain and higher elevation snow will end over Northern
California overnight Saturday with the rain and higher elevation snow
continues over parts of the Pacific Northwest and snow over parts of the
Northern Rockies/Northern High Plains.  Additionally, upper-level ridging
will develop over the Northwest and the snow levels will rise on Saturday
into Sunday.

...Heavy snow over the Northern Cascades...
 
...Heavy rain over parts of the Southern Mid-Atlantic Coast...


A front along the Eastern Seaboard will slowly move eastward out over the
Western Atlantic by Monday evening.  Moisture will pool along the boundary
aiding in the development of rain from Southern New England southward to
the Southeast and the Central Gulf Coast and as far westward as Central
Appalachians/Eastern Ohio Valley and the Tennessee Valley that will slowly
move off the Northeast Coast by Sunday evening.  By Monday evening the
rain will be confined to parts of the Northern Mid-Atlantic Coast and
Southeastern Florida.

In addition, upper-level energy over the Northern High Plains will move
southeastward to the Ohio Valley by Monday evening.  The energy will
produce snow over parts of the Northern Rockies/Northern High Plains that
will slowly dissipate on Sunday evening.  Overnight Sunday, the energy
will produce snow and rain over parts of the Middle Mississippi
Valley/Western Ohio Valley that will move eastward to the Lower Great
Lakes/Eastern Ohio Valley as light snow and some light rain by Monday
evening.

Meanwhile, a plume of moisture will stream into the Pacific Northwest on
Sunday that will slowly begin to wane by Monday evening.  The moisture
will aid in producing rain and higher elevation snow over the Pacific
Northwest that will become confined to the Olympic Peninsula and parts of
the Northern Intermountain Region by Sunday evening.  Rain will move
southward into the Northwest Oregon Coast by Monday evening.  On Monday
into Monday evening the rain will be heavy at times.  Overnight Sunday
into Monday evening, the snow levels will slowly start to lower as
upper-level troughing moves into the Northwest.

This film cites a news article naming this winter's flu season as the worst since the Swine Flu epidemic of 2009, as it has taken young and healthy individuals quickly after onset of somewhat mild symptoms at first.  While the pandemic is concentrated in the U.S. presently, it is spreading globally as well.

As a gentle reminder, vitamin D3 @ 5,000 units daily minimum is suggested until we are able to expose our skin to the sun once again.  Vitamin B-100 complex daily and again at the first sign of any sore throat.  Vitamin C daily (better divided into a.m. and p.m. doses) to bowel tolerance.

May I also suggest including chewable Vitamin D3 in our preps, as chewables are more stable long-term than oily capsules left to peroxidize.  Of course when SHTF, we'd need to do mouth care immediately after eating chewable vitamins, with the possibility of there being no dentist.
