The perfect storm may be coming.

Consider these facts in light of the fact that the bees which pollinate many of our crops are disappearing at an alarming rate! We may be headed for a real problem that Westerners have not faced in generations, i.e. food shortages! This is not a license to hoard; it is a warning to take some intelligent precautions. Don’t depend on the 3-day just-in-time super markets to always be there when you need them most. Don’t depend on the truckers who are going out of business due to insane gas prices. Depend on yourself. The Mormons have the right idea in that they store up enough to get over any foreseeable hump. See links in red.
