Irene floods may jolt food price



"The damage caused by Hurricane Irene has been both financial and emotional. While flooding on South Florida farms could lead to higher food prices in much of the country, residents of eastern North Carolina are struggling to raise their spirits after suffering through three straight hurricanes....They said the hurricane's deluge -- up to 18 inches in parts of Miami-Dade County -- could affect prices nationwide for tomatoes, sweet corn, cucumbers, green beans, eggplant, squash and zucchini. "

A few days of heavy rain in a part of the Florida and it affects the whole country....how would a few days of world wide "y2k rain" affect us ?. Think about it.

I haven't any need to "think about it" thank you. I'm stockpiled.

(Ooh gads, don't get myself and everyone else going again. I was just back at K-Mart today picking up a few of the Charmin 24 packs it had "mounds and mounds" of.)
