Am I The Only One Quietly Stocking Up On Food, H20

Mon Sep 17, 2001 6:30 am

I for one think this is NOT over, and am prudently buying water, food, batteries, ammo...

Anyone else feel the same way?

You are not alone.

Unfortunately, I don't have spare cash to do the same.

I do, however, have some of my y2K stuff still sitting in my closet  Big grin

Hey, at least you're helping the economy! Big thumbs up But, I am not doing anything out of the ordinary. I honestly don't think it will come down to that.

We are remodeling the kitchen so our house already looks like a war torn piece of land. Luckily it should be over in a few weeks.

I like to Fly - I realize this isn't the same site that I read your replies at before, but that partuicular one is nw archieved now. The one I am referring to is the site with "Hardlanding". I and quite a few others owe you an apology, you had him pegged from the beginning and I didn't. So, I'm sorry, and I'll try to be more careful in my replies. Skyhawk

Better get an anthrax vaccine if you are concerned at all with being around to eat that food and drink that water.

Food, no, because I have a ton right now. Water, yes. I'm too cheap to go out and buy bottled water, though. Every time I finish a 3-liter bottle of soda, I rinse it out and fill it with tap water. I've got 8 bottles (so far) sitting on top of my dryer. If nothing happens... oh well. I can use them to water my houseplants. Better to be safe than sorry.

I am less worried about catastrophe, and more worried about a long loss of power, food, gas, water, beer,  Big grin ...

I remember a friend's family who was stock piling some kind of special water for Y2K. This water supposedly makes you radiation-deflective...
Anyone heard of it or know what its called?

Guess it makes some folks feel better to stock pile these types of things.

As for me, I've got earthquake supplies and that is enough.




I love America. I guess that makes me Bush's poodle, but I'd rather be a dog in New York City than a prince in Riyadh.
