And every year, when a hurricane approaches, we see the stores run out of bottled water, batteries, plywood, propane and low/no prep food. And, invariably, we see people bitch about the fact that there “aint nothin’ left”.
Yet how hard is it to have a few pieces of plywood for your windows stashed in the back of your garage or in a shed?
How hard is it to stash a weeks worth of cans of food under your bed or the back of the closet?
How hard is it to stock a few cases of bottled water at the start of the hurricane season?
I mean, panic now, beat the rush….prepare early so you have what you will need, that which will be in short supply if and when. It isn’t like cans of food or plywood or bottled water spoil that easily. You can use it for many years.
Why do these folks always wait until the last minute?
