But the polls just closed!

Didn't I just say, I mean JUST say on Monday, no less, that I wasn't going to even think about the potential for a flu pandemic until after the election? Well, the election is over, I've started to relax, and look what Mir posted. I like her attitude, though; she wants to go for the ice cream instead of six months of freeze-dried meals to hide under the bed.
So as long as I'm thinking about it -- I have a freezer full of various foodstuffs, and our back hallway/pantry is pretty well stocked, but I'm not looking at 6 weeks or 90 days by any means. We feel fortunate if we can skip grocery shopping one weekend and just buy bread & milk & bunny food. If we plan well enough, we can do that frequently. Honestly, we could wait out several days worth of blizzard with what we have on hand.
It's more practical in my book to plan for a blizzard than for a pandemic. If global warming gets significantly worse, I won't even have to plan for those. But in the meantime, I think I'll revise this to reflect the latest panic warnings. It will help me keep my head on straight and my priorities in order.

I feel so out of the loop. A flu pandemic? Are you talking avian flu? Now I'm a little panicked. I'm more worried about earthquake preparedness than any thing else here in Southern California. Thanks for the visit/comment at my blog.
