Prepping for a storm in Greece

Not a weather related storm. People in Greece are on watch for a political and economic one. One that could be bigger than those that have triggered past bouts of protest and unrest.

Reuters reports Greeks are hitting their banks hard, withdrawing the equivalent of a billion dollars from  accounts. Apparently a bunch of the money is going to buy canned goods and other non-perishable foods ahead of Sunday's election.

Running around gathering supplies at the last minute when potential disaster is on the horizon is called prepare on warning. And it can be a fool's game. There's a bunch of folks who'd rather have enough basics already on hand so they can skip the crowds and the fighting over scraps.  It's much easier to implement a personal plan already in place than try to create one as things begin go haywire.

Those who scorn preparedness as a lifestyle may soon get some inspiration to alter their opinions.
