On landline yesterday they had a segment on the lack of rice grown in the world due to climate conditions.
Today at aldi there was a big sign saying that due to global shortages they had no rice.
That was quick. So Wednesday when I go IGA to get the cat food I will buy a couple of bags of rice and put them away as the start of my stockpiling that I have been intending to start for a while but have put off.
For hints on how to start stockpiling check out the link to down to earth and she explains it perfectly.
