This is why everybody should have emergency provisions in their cars at all times, even in areas that rarely experience storms like this (ESPECIALLY in these areas, as this story shows). At a minimum your car should have 5 gallons of water, a twenty pound bag of kitty litter, a twenty pound bag of sand and salt mixed in a 2-to-3 ratio, several blankets and quilts, one flashlight for every available seat in the car, backup batteries for said flashlights, a five-gallon bucket for bodily waste, a five-gallon bucket for melting ice and snow should the water run out, a battery-operated radio, a small generator, backup fuel for the generator, a ham radio to alert ham radio enthusiasts to your position, a flotation device for every seat available in the car and some snacks. If people had followed these simple guidelines this whole situation could have been avoided.

They actually accepted such socialist handouts? I thought the only sensible thing they could do down there was join the governor in praying for the ice to melt.

Onkel Buck: demaL-demaL-yeH: Onkel Buck: demaL-demaL-yeH: Onkel Buck: A10Mechanic: So what?  The poor people who eat them won't have to worry about pooping for the next 3-5 days.  That's a win, in my book.

Then why did they pack toilet paper in them?

/anyone want to explain to the civilians how to properly use the MRE shiat paper?

To wipe the post-nasal drip from your nose from the overflow of tears from pushing a half week worth of dessicated MRE bricks out your rectum.

I just put you in for a medal for that response. It will probably downgraded to a certificate of appreciation though

That's OK. You should see what they did to my twenty-page writeup for a Legion of Merit for one of my soldiers.

What did he end up with an AAM?


ArCom, and he got to hear the outgoing CSM chew out the brigade commander and S3 in an epically polite manner.

ZzeusS: MREs are not bad, per se.  Some are better than others.  Just remember you're not signing up for fine dining.

God help the poor bastard stuck with Egg and Cheese Omelette


They discontinued that one. I heard flies in Somalia wouldnt even land on it.

What's with this new trend of greenlighting headlines that rival War and Peace?
