  • Based on the food in the fridge and the pantry probably a few weeks....we'd probably kill each other long before that though!!!

  • If we stretched it and were not doing balanced meals and cutting snacks in half at the end... 2 weeks.

  • Food wise I think we could go about a month. Might not be a balanced meal but we could eat!

  • about an hour. I tried THREE times to go shopping today and got road blocked by this or that each time. I'm going to have to wake up early just to get my kids breakfast!

  • We could easily go a good 6-8 months. Possibly more.

  • I'd say 3-4 weeks. We'd be living off beans and rice and popcorn lol but we'd make it!

  • What is a fever?
    If I had a lot of jugs of bottled water, I could last about a month,I bet. Although, without electricity, NONE of us could feed ourselves and our families for more than a few days. we would have to grill eveything and eat it right away.And eat canned foods without heating them,etc. EVerything would get moldy--bread,etc.
    I prefer not to think about that possibility. It is a remote possibility anyway..
