Thanks for the thread Slippy. Enjoyed reading it.
I did well on food and like most, was able to get out as it was obvious things were going south. I'd still be good for 3-6 months without. Just not as comfy.
Were I failed was hand sanitizer / masks /etc. As a kidney transplant patient; that's a big screw up for me. Don't get me wrong - still have some, but would sleep better having a big extra bottle. Since we've been home, using more hand or dish soap so all good. I liked the comments on the coffee pot in case we lose electricity (not probable under this scenario), so I bought one already.
I'd like to point out that some water stores doesn't always have to be for drinking. You'll likely need some for toilets, etc. I have 100+ gal in drinkable and ~ 70 in 'potable' - same water, but the containers aren't BPA-free (my bad), so there is a smell to the water that I wouldn't drink from it vs. going to the creek nearby and hauling some for boiling on a fire (again, not this scenario).
