    My wife and I had”our eyes openend” about this during the blizzard of ’78 here in New England. We were living in a country setting on the border of RI/CT and JUST made it home from college to our small farm…not many others did in our neighborhood…anyway, walking out to the corner store(no cars on the road but plowtrucks) THAT AFTERNOON found no milk, no bread,and all food shelves 3/4 bare…it had taken us(young and healthy) an hour thru the storm to reach that store, there were only five houses closer to the store than where we lived…..next morning ALL shelves were virtually bare, it took three days to re stock the store.

    • That goes to show how quickly the stores will empty when everyone panics. City stores will be crazy and likely empty in hours. This is definitely one area where I disagreed with the LDS Manual. Anyway, in a more rural setting such as yours I would have suspected that people were more prepared than most. I guess they were stocking up just in case?

    Question 1 is probably even less than the manual states if you ask me. You could probably measure it in hours in some circumstances.
