If you don't think it can happen here, think again. Be prepared for anything, or this will be you!
Remember it only takes 3 days for desperation to begin, and that's what we're seeing in NY. I don't want to ever have to live like this. I can deal with cleaning up a mess, but being hungry and cold is not an option.
Being prepared is not as hard as trying to find food for you and your children after the fact. This is a wake up call for those still sitting on the fence, thinking preppers are nuts. Living like this would make me nuts.
