I think your totally nut’s in the head !!! your local Government should take care of you , if anything as CRAZY as say , a FLOOD or HURRICANE ( Katrina ) know Patricia, a Snowstorm, Buffalo/Syracuse, a Tornado Midwest/Everywhere now, or even a Wildfire Western U.S. , or Drought EVERYWHERE IT SEEMS, for that matter were to happen ( never has never will ). We do live in the U.S.A. YA KNOW !! That kinda stuff does not happen here. I don’t worry about stuff like that, We don’t get problems like that in N.Y. EVER ! My brothers live in Arizona and Florida , and they always have fresh food and plenty of water. So when people tell you your crazy, tell them that they are probably right, and stop telling people what you have and what your going to get. You’ll be the first place they come to ask for what they know you have !
Our ancestors ALWAYS stored food. I remember women always showing visitors their home canned foods & root cellars. Gardens and animals were a thing of pride as well. It was a shameful thing if you did not provide for you family.
Hey there. The scout motto has always been a good one to follow"Be Prepared". Worst case scenario is that you have additional food stored. With all that is happening or could be ready to happen,there is nothing wrong with stocking up. Take care of yourselves and we might get through all of this uncertainty.Southern Patriot
We had the town working on installing new water lines and it messed up our water supply for about four hours. I had sufficient water stored, from just a few days previous, to wash dishes and rinse them. And I had enough to start the meal for the night.
Its not just for a "real" emergency, but for those days of aggravation. Yes, More than three days is my goal too.
Rebecca – listen to that little voice and protect yourself and your family. Our grocery stores only have 72 hours worth of food on the shelves. One major disruption and they will be cleaned out quick. We buy life insurance, home owner insurance, car insurance. Why not have some food insurance? It will give you a great peace of mind! Good luck.
Better safe than sorry. If a bad storm comes in and you loose your electricity because the power poles have been blown down you will be safer and more secure.
