There was a preparedness flyer in the Sunday paper. Snohomish County has increased their recommendation from seven(?) days of supplies to 14 days of supplies.
(teehee)For on the 15th day FEMA will arrive in all it's glory and all will be well...
People as a whole RARELY learn from history. The last great panic on ammo was a prime example of it. For many it was not the first time they had seen something like that. Look how few learned. When Y2K was getting close Wife even started to get caught up. Was saying we did not have enough. I told her we were fine. Always keep enough for weeks for the great shake that may come. She kept saying some had HUGE stockpiles of food. I just told her I have guns and ammo. Many of those with a stock pile do not. One of them will feed us to keep what they have.(teehee)

- Preparing is stupid because one or more government agencies will save you.
- Guns are scary and bad, so you shouldn't have them.
