Living in Florida I'm used to assembling a hurricane pack of canned food and water for a potential disaster, but frankly I do it without much imagination - cans of ravioli, cases of water, nuts, granola, and a few boxes of Kraft dinner (things I might not normally eat, but they are always on sale at the beginning of hurricane season). When I think of our fellow Food 52'ers who are still without water or electricity after almost a week (hang in there!) I realize the inadequacy of my own preparations.
Does anyone have a plan for living with out the essentials for a week? If it did occur in my neck of the swamp, it would be hot and muggy after the event and ice would be a rapidly diminishing commodity. I have friends who have been hit hard by a hurricane and they said one of the worst things afterwards was having to live on Chef Boyardee for a week.
So imagine you're hot, tired, stressed and dazed. Unintended camping with less facilities. No electricity, no running water. You need sustenance that feeds your stomach and your soul. What would you do?
Thanks everyone in advance.
