No Sleeping Bags
Toe warmers, flint starters, lighters and matches were depleted.
Suitcases are now a high demand item and grace the end caps.
Flashlights are gone
Electric heaters are gone - though the note reminds all that they are PLUG IN. ::snort::
The city has gone to once a week trash pick up. We needed to buy another trash can and the BX was out. We stopped by two stores on the way home. It would appear that TRASH CAN LIDS (you buy them separately here) have been in very high demand. The shelves off base tell the same story...with batteries, blankets, sleeping bags gone. We were told NOT to buy supplies of this sort off base as we can buy on base and don't want to deplete Japan's resources.
Batteries are all gone
Whereas snack food, granola bars and canned food seem to have been the item of choice at the commissary, off base it seems that various frozen convenience foods were snatched up.
Supply lines are opening and I don't look for these to be long term shortages.....we are far better off than those south of us.
Yes, I realize these are rather trivial posts...Mike reminded me today that I should write my story before it grows dim...and he said he needs to do the same. Maybe it will be a family project. At this point...I'm happy to deal with surface emotions, hug on my kids and deal with the whole story aspect on another day. LOL
Living all of life before the face of God...
