Fed Y2K Hotline: Have three weeks' worth.greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
"Y2K hotline staffer Anne Haynal advocates "personal preparedness." For most people, that means storing a couple weeks' worth of food, which many families already have in their cupboards, and a little spare cash."
FWIW, prior to Y2K I've never had more than 5 days' worth on meals in the house.

"It's wonderful," Haynal says. "It changes day to day and sometimes, something you thought you knew, someone calls and puts a little different twist on it and it's new all over again."
Remember people, these are YOUR tax dollars at work.
Thanks for the article Lisa. This one is precious.

Oh, golly, I was really worried about my microwave, too. Like no food to put in it because the supply lines are all snafooed.

Might as well just curl up and die. Someone is going to pay for their stupidity.

Hello, Hospital? Do you have any plans to help people?
