There is nothing wrong with being prepared for a storm , hurricane , snow , tornado etc.When the grid goes down nothing works that requires electricity . I hoard gas , diesel , food , have back up water , firewood . I keep a rotating stock of necessities . Most importantly I have cash ready , during an event , credit cards and checks are worthless . My wife gave me a hard time before a snowstorm when I added 125 gallons of gas , and bought 2 weeks of non perishable food , when the storm hit and the electric went out I didnt miss a beat , kept the trucks moving , kept the house warm and kept the family fed . And yes I sold some 5 gallon cans of gas for more than retail , It took time to assemble , and unload and prepare , it was a basic business transaction based on supply and demand .
