Thanks for your concern, Tom. We live on the bayside in a fairly protected location that has been OK through storms for hundreds of years. The problem is if the infrastructure hiccups e.g. electricity. I am a newbie "prepper" and am looking at hand pumps for our well. Tomorrow my brother and I are going out after Bluefin tuna and if we are lucky will stock up our freezers. Not depending on the Fed Gov for our protection.
