Purchased Today

Against the approach of Ernesto (stay away, stay away):

60 lbs. dry cat food

2 flats canned cat food

5 big containers of litter

4 more flats of water to add to the 6 already in our pantry

$230 worth of canned goods, crackers, etc.

1 tank of gas

A small camp stove with 5 propane canisters that scare me to death

2 battery-powered Coleman lanterns

A shitload of batteries

2 12-packs of toilet paper

I hope everyone understands why I have no intention of evacuating again. After having spent weeks shut out of my city due to bureaucracy and multiple system failures, I consider the matter closed to discussion. Leaving last year was the worst, most irresponsible decision I ever made, and I regret it more than anything else I've ever done in my life. Unfortunately, staying would have been an equally bad decision, because we weren't prepared for the aftermath. This time, we will be. In the event of another system breakdown, we are prepared to feed, water, and defend ourselves for several weeks.

If things look bad on Monday, I've also got some St. Joseph bread to throw out the door.
