    Had the same thing in our area a few months ago. Boiling ineffective, grocery store shelves were empty.

    We had bottled water, but we keep 55 Gallons treated and sealed to use before we go filtering from the spring.

    Two well on the property We can get water from with or with out power also surface water from a flowing creek if needed. Right now plenty of snow also it can be melted.
    Yes food, water, Back up power enough to at least get settled in Security. All work together it things go bad. They give you time to work it out.

    Might be time to buy more stock in companies that make water filters.

    I have a well, town water and a hose and pump to draw water from the river behind my shop.

    Have 200 gallons stored in bunker in case we have to button up.

    So many things to prepare for.
