Mount Weather mug

MOUNT WEATHER COFFEE MUG

We could tell you who got us this coffee mug, but we'd have to kill you. Suffice it to say CONELRAD has at least one reader with a pretty impressive security clearance.

Why does a top secret Continuity of Government facility that is carved into the side of a Virginia mountain have a gift shop? Why does the agency that runs Mount Weather - FEMA - refuse to acknowledge the facility's existence, yet allows branded swag made in China (!) to be sold onsite? We don't know, but we're sure glad it does because of all the items in our collection, this cup is the crown jewel. If FEMA would sell us a pound of their specially roasted Cheney Blend, we'd truly be in heaven.

For more on Mount Weather (aka High Point aka the Special Facility), read Ted Gup's 1991 Time magazine article "Civil Defense Doomsday Hideway."
