Didn't want to threadjack the stocking up post. For those stocking up on supplies in the event TSHTF how can this stuff be stored like flour, cornmeal, batteries, etc? Things that would get buggy, hard, weaken. In the event of a power outage our freezers would be useless. Any other ways to store them like dark areas, garage, celler, bury underground, etc? I know potatoes can be burried underground with hay for several months & dug up later to prevent them rotting quickly. I know years ago farmers didn't have electricity, refridgeration, etc but I'm unfamiliar with all the storage methods they used. Mostly all I've ever stocked has been canned good & paper products.
