Will Hurricane Sandy cause people to re-think too small?
As I watch news coverage of people in New York City digging through dumpsters searching for food and asking "when is the Government going to get here" I have flashbacks of several small homes (apartments/condos) featured on Small Space Big Style where the occupants proudly proclaimed that they had no need for a kitchen of any kind because they always go out for food. I'm wondering if Sandy will cause some of them to re-think practicality and self sufficiency.
Yes, I understand that the power is out so they couldn't cook any stored food but if they had some freeze dried or dehydrated food and a little Jet Boil kit like the hikers carry it would sure make life a whole lot more tolerable right now.
On a grander scale, I hope everyone around the Country is seeing this and making a mental note to follow FEMA's well publicized message, "Get A Kit, Make A Plan".
