So there is a grocery chain pulling all of their stores out of NH. Friday morning, they put up a 50% off sale. The wife and I went there today about 1 pm, and there is not very much left. I was struck at how much stuff people cleared out in a little more than 48 hours. No dairy, bread, paper goods, meat, produce, chips, soda etc. For some odd reason, the ice cream isle was not too bad. And a small selection of crap no one wanted. (Fish Paste, anyone?) This afternoon, you would have a pretty hard time making a full meal out of there. To be honest, even though there is another store right across the street, it was a little disconcerting. It goes to show how fast the most needed stuff would disappear in the event of SHTF, and I can only imagine the feeling if EVERY store was like that, with no resupply coming. I guess it's pretty important to recognize when something starts to go down, and get to the store IMMEDIATELY. And run your CC up, if you're early enough, LOL.
