  •  I'm stocked a bit, myself (6+ / 0-)

     I've got fuel for a couple of long distance runs, ammo, and lots of food. I've also got a parathyroid tumor that is kicking my ass and I've got my fingers crossed things hold together for a few more months so I can get that serviced, then it can go ahead and get interesting in the Chinese curse sense of the word.

    •  Whatever is coming down the pike... (5+ / 0-)

      I do not think it is a bad idea to have supplies on hand.
      We all should...

      •  hundreds of pounds of rice and beans (3+ / 0-)

        I have hundreds of pounds of rice and beans, lots of other staples, and where we live there is plenty to eat - very rural Iowa, with summer coming on. I delivered 140 tomato plants to a neighbor yesterday and today - they were going to be thrown out by the greenhouse as they had more than they needed. We should see almost a ton of salable produce from this and there are other throw aways waiting to happen there.

        I think I might get through this change without getting too many scuffs on me, comparatively speaking, but ... yuck. I did not want such things in my otherwise peaceful lifetime :-(
