I live in Alaska and especially during the winter the state is vulnerable to having a fresh food supply line disconnected.
Most of us in rual Alaska normally stockpile in the summer for the long winter. Soon when the Permanent Fund checks are doled out the smart ones swoop down on Costco and nuy in bulk, my wife works at a food warehouse just so she has an inside track on whats up and she gets dented but salvageable items every day, and my self when our local Walmart for the first time ever started to carry the one gallon cans of the Augason Farms dehydrated foods I bought about 80 cans. And thats not all, I have extra water though we have a well and a manual pump.
Alaska has told Obama to go pound sand on many different issues and its probably conceivable that the elected officials might consider doing something ahead of time just in case Obama decided to punish states that defy his pogroms, if there was any tin foil hat to wear I would wear that one.
Bottom line is this, Alaskans know how to survive and have an inner feeling on what to do if they get a gut feeling something is going to happen.
I live in Alaska, too, and I ditto Eye of Unk. We’re never far from a situation - earthquake, blizzard, power outage.
Unk, how deep is your well and what kind of manual pump do you use? I have a generator that will drive the pump but if an extended outage occurred I would eventually run out of gas, thus no water. Thanks
