In some of the latest news I heard today that a South Korean Airlines Flight Attendant tested positive for Covid-19. That could make things interesting, multiple exposures on multiple flights going to multiple destinations. Somebody at the CDC will be earning their paycheck this week.

In other news why are flight attendants always trying to destroy mankind with strange diseases? Patient zero in the AIDS epidemic was a flight attendant, just in case you forgot. Maybe we don't need a meteor, just a few more flight attendants. Wink

I normally don't use milk, but I may pick up a quart just to have something for my coffee. Can you leave it out after it's opened or do you have to refrigerate it?

As Angel Eyes suggests, it needs refrigeration after opening.

It's a different taste from normal milk. I'm fine with it, but the children complain. For cooking, I can't tell any difference.

I didn't realize that you had to refrigerate flight attendants after you opened them. Maybe that's why they don't smell as fresh the next morning...  Evil

Main emphasis will be on durable foods -- dried beans, rice, pasta, canned soup, vegetables, jarred pasta sauce, oatmeal, canned/bagged meat (Spam and tuna, mainly) and peanut butter.

I would just suggest adding some fruit to that, or at least a bottle of vitamins to substitute.

Fruit is on the list I made, it just didn't make the message here. I also have a strong supply of multi vitamins at home, so I'm good there, as well.

But, yes, be sure to refrigerate your "flight attendant." If that's what you want to call her.

I'm so used to sweet alfalfa and silage, non alkaline watered dairy cows, that most milk tastes funny to me.

I use the carnation powdered milk for some cooking, and when I have been out of regular milk and too embarrassingly lazy to hit the store, have used it in cereal and whatnot. Worked fine. The key is to have it really chilled.

I've gotten that (or similar) in the past, but never use enough after opening such a big package. I can't really justify keeping it on hand.

Walmart has packages that make 1.5 or 3 qts at a time, can't recall off hand. I use it to make pudding for wilderness trips

 Used to keep four quarts of the dollar tree stuff in he cabin all,the time. The last few years have been a little rough on me so the long drive to get it wasn't a priority. It works great in gravy or even cereals . I would put one in fridge so it was cold and when it got opened I would put another in to chill. My daughter liked it better than regular milk.

Air tight in the freezer has worked for me for white and whole wheat flour. Also for cornmeal.

If you're talking 5gal bucket quantities, a food grade bucket with airtight (more or less) lid in a dark, moderate temperature location.

Smaller quantities I might use gallon zip locks.

Well, it's really starting to hit the front pages of the news sites now. Even if it's not severe, I expect at least another 2000 down on the Dow this week (dropped almost another 900 today), and let the panic buying of food and supplies commence.

Seems to me that 2 to 4 weeks of supplies isn't going to be enough, if this goes full-on pandemic.  It takes ~2 weeks for symptoms to appear. 

With no vaccination and an unknown number of contagious people moving around this isn't going to go away soon.  If the .gov steps in and starts shutting things (transport, movement, etc.) down, I think they'll be shut down for quite a while - months?

Got more than 2 months food stored, a few hundred thousand gallons of water in the pond (and a lot of filters, bleach etc.), ammo (never enough), a couple of (fairly) steady sources of income w/o having to go to work.  Gonna buy more long term storage type foods tomorrow.

Lack the money but more salt and gas would be nice to have. Can get fresh meat anytime here. Might have to trade defense for the Amish for fresh veggies.

Thanks Jim147, I'd forgotten about the fuel supply.  Only have ~20 gals on hand - think I'll top off the cans come Thursday.

I don't know if we'll see any gas hoarding, but I actually need another 5 gallon gas can anyway for my small engine stuff, and overly cautious or not, I think I'm going to fill the tanks on both vehicles whenever they get below 2/3 of a tank for the immediate future, just to keep them topped off. If nothing else, it will give me a buffer in case there are any price spikes on fuel.

I keep 5# or 10# in the freezer so I never run out in the middle of baking/making something.

Everything I've read says refined flour is good in a cool, dark place for 1-2 years. I just keep mine in the pantry. I usually bake a loaf of bread every week or two, so a ten pound bag never sits for more than 6 months.
