Having survived the Arctic Vortex of Winter 2014, and the behavior of the general public, I’m left wondering, “Are Preppers really the crazy ones”?
Officially FEMA now suggest we all store at least two weeks of food and water. As soon as news hit of our impending bad weather our local grocery stores were besieged by people not only buying out the supply of milk, bread, and eggs, but all manner of snack foods up to and including selling out of broccoli.
Pretty much with modern weather reporting we knew that we were likely to be snowed in, or at least have travel restrictions, for only 2-3 days max. I could not help but wonder how people would react if suddenly their local grocery stores could not guarantee ANY new supply of food? What would you do to feed your children or yourself if suddenly the store shelves were bare tomorrow? Finally what are the real chances of this really ever happening?
