Of Frugality and Acts of God and Acts of Greed

For those in need of stores for possible or probable power outages, whether from acts of God, (hurricanes,) or acts of greed, (overloading the grid,) a store called "Dollar Tree," (one of the actual dollar stores, everthing there's a buck,) has quart boxes of milk that according to those on whom I taste tested it, are as good as that sort of thing can be.

The brands I have set aside in the larder in the past as storm prep run two to three times that in the regular supermarket.

(didn't see any boxed 1/2 & 1/2)
It is supposed to be a light storm season in this area, and we never but never lose power in ordinary storms, but so many areas in the rest of the country are having freakish and devastating weather events, you never know...
