RE: Get ready for the coming storms
You're right and many people still don't see it coming. I've got a lot of food stored, but not enough to last me a long time. Not prepper level. That's probably what we should all be kind of trending toward, though. At least I know how to grow food. I know how to preserve food, too.
The silver lining may be that this is our only chance for restructuring some things. If life falls apart, it may be possible to put it back together in a more meaningful way. Get people interacting with their local farmers and things like that.
People today depend far too much on large corporations and food systems to get their food to them. When that shuts down, it'll be chaos for a while, but some will find ways around it. Humans have been through worse and we're still here!
