Sol sent me a link yesterday about Germany recommendation to stockpile food and to be honest I hadn't been at my computer much so I would have missed it otherwise.
There are some news articles from the BBC here and the Independent here.
In short the German Government has advised it's citizens to stockpile food and water for the first time since the Cold War.
This has resulted in what the Germans call "Hamsterkaeufe" or panic buying. Shelves in some supermarkets have been stripped bare in a few hours with Germans trying to get enough food for the recommended 10 days and water for the recommended 5 days in case of terror attacks.
Another wake up call to keep household essentials in stock, if you lived week to week with your food then a simple news item like this could leave you without food for that week without anything even happening.
Do you have what the German Government is recommending in your store?
What would be the thing you'd have to rush out and buy?
