    ...assuming you had water and could cook as usual (you just couldn't go to the store and buy more food), how long would you and your family be able to eat?

    A year would be pretty easy with no health issues but probably a bad case of food boardum. I may be ok definitely though between the stores, the land an the livestock.

    I've always had a good stockpile of food, but for the last few months money has been extra tight. Honestly, right now we'd only last a few weeks at most.
