I’ll Have My Booze Just In Case
I’ve thought a little bit about natural disasters. Out here in CA it’s all about the big earthquake. I have a pretty substantial emergency kit stocked with cloths, food, batteries, radios, water, etc. But what I forgot to put in there is booze.
These people were not as delinquent as I:
It appears that the Hurricane Gustav spurred lots of people to stock up on booze.
Is it a matter of not wanting to ride out the storm sober? Maybe they figure that so many stores will be knocked out of commission in a Hurricane they may end up with no access to alcohol for a while. (Is that a bad thing?) Or maybe they figure water won’t be potable and you can count on alcohol not being tainted. I’m not sure what it is.
But it is kind of funny.
I’ve got about 20 cases of wine here in the house in Glen Ellen, stashed in various places. I figure as long as my roof or walls don’t come down and fire doesn’t break out during an earthquake my stash is relatively safe. It’s all fairly close to ground or pretty darn secure. So, I’m safe if the big one hits. I’ll have my booze.
But just to be safe, I’m putting a case of that wine in my Earthquake Emergency Stash. I feel better already.
