Good question. Where was YOUR planning? Your comfort and safety is YOUR responsibility, lady, not the government's. You want guaranteed access to fuel? Don't let your gas tank get below half full and keep a gas can in the garage. Water? Cases of bottled water are cheap as hell at Costco or Target. Food? Your grandmother would be ashamed of you for not keeping a few day's worth of food on hand at all times.

Sheeple piss me off.
