    Had heard chatter of chatter so since I'll be busy tomorrow, got some pantry type gut filler that I'll normally use anyway. It was like a ghost town at the Tigard WINCO at 0900 this morning.. kinda creepy quiet.
    Anyway, we'll see and good luck to us all.. of course.

    I still have mine from Y2k, SARS, MERS, H1N1, Bird flu, swine flu, mad cow, Obama part 1, Obama part 2 and that Astroid that flew past earth last year. I think I am good.

    Just my regular two month supply (give or take), and not really enough water to go with it. I will make sure the cars are gassed up good though. One decent sized incident in S.F. or N.Y. could cause a panic.
    What if they hit our oil refineries!!??..........I think I'll fill up some gas cans too!:eek:

    And I know and understand that every swingin dick has a can a spam and perhaps a generator and maybe even a gat (golly)! I was just wondering if anyone had had a thought to top off this or that with the talk of the isis chatter. not that it really matters in the final analysis

    I'm not buying the fear. It usually means being paid for in freedom, which doesn't come cheap.

    As I said, I didn't see any fear, and I only see complacency from your words.. I paid normal low price for my victuals today.

    I buy the large cans - hickory smoke, BBQ, etc., then I mix them with chili and some BBQ sauce and let that simmer in the slow cooker. On top of some cornbread, that is good eatin!

    I have stores in place at both sites, enough for a good long time. I don't think there will be an attack until Obama leaves office, not that he is in control of all Islamo-Facists but because he will allow the domestic security orgs do their jobs until further notice. Any attack that does happen will doubtless be spun by the WH Dept of Propaganda to indict those on Obama's Enemies List

    Great post!

    Not bad to have a reminder, but I should have our needs covered as best I can regardless of the date.

    I'm buying extras for the looming winter at the mouth of the Coloumbia Gorge! Gotta get heating oil now! That's always a bubble gumming joy. The neighbor finally cut down Sherwood Forrest (his back yard) and I've got a bunch of assorted hardwood in 16-18" billets! Freeee!!!

    Always try to pick up a couple extra cans of assorted stuff (including beans) when we hit the grocery store. I by no means have a huge pantry stocked yet, but I'm trying to build a food reserve.
