Isn’t is crazy how we take so many things for granted?
Even with our country in very obvious crisis, many are oblivious to the coming food shortage and the emergency survival situation that is looming on the horizon.
We get up in the morning, open the faucet and water comes rushing out, we get a pot of coffee going, at the flip of a switch, we grab a quick shower with nice bright lights, of course, plug in the shaver or hair dryer and get ready for our day…. pop a bagel into the toaster, grab a cold drink and some lunch from the fridge and head off to work..
BUT just let some emergency situation arise, be it a natural emergency like flooding, fires, or a bomb gets dropped somewhere in the city….
All that drastically changes especially if the power goes out!
Life quickly takes on a whole new meaning and survival mode kicks in when the switches don’t work, the faucet only spits and sputters, and all the food is gone bad in the fridge because there is no longer any power to keep it cold.
The first day or so many will rush to the grocery store to stock up on emergency food items, but it takes only a few hours in most places to empty the store shelves. Which leaves us no other choice but to survive on whatever food storage we have at home.
For the wise Americans that have been quietly preparing for the coming food shortage in America, they will not have to leave their homes for months, as they are well prepared , not only for the food shortage, but also in other ways.
- emergency power supply will be on hand, for many in the form of a small emergency electric generator
- gardens will be growing, especially in the summertime. In the winter the shelves in the basement will be lined with canned goods.
And not only are they prepared for the coming food shortage, they are saving money on their grocery bills, right now by doing that, so they are able to put extra money into savings to carry them through any emergency situation that may arise.
Regardless what your situation, it is foolish not to prepare for the coming food shortage that many experts are saying will happen eventually, and that could happen much sooner than we want to believe.
Should it never happen, there is nothing to lose. Having extra food on hand has never yet hurt anybody!
