Freakonomics had a piece about how an area with a huge surplus of crops couldn't stock local stores when a landslide cut off freight connections from elsehwere: http://freakonomics.com/2012/06/07/you-eat-what-you-are-pt-2-a-new-fr e akonomics-radio-podcast/. Your supermarket, wine store, etc. probably has an exclusive deal with a supplier. Your farm, vineyard, etc. probably has a similar deal with a distributor. If you can't ship the produce 100 miles away, slap a label on the box, and ship it back, your only legal choice is to starve, sober up, etc.

So you're saying the Okanagan, which has a winery every three kilometres, won't be able to get wine until the truckers go back to work?

At least it improves with age.  The pyramid may get a bit overstuffed, though.

Sobering up is not an option.

If only there was some other readily available drug that people could fall back upon.

Still plenty of BC truckers driving through Washington State!
