74. It's not that folks disregarded them, it happens every disaster

It's the multiple excuses people posted here as to why they did not need even the most basic of preparations.

I mean, I can still walk to the well stocked bodega, what happens when you can't, can't be bothered.

So I went for the barebones (IMO insufficient) list given by emergency managers I am informed by professional experience. But the 72 hours buys emergency services time to be able to move in with MREs...that is the truth.

And welcome to DU.
