There is an swine flu epidemic in Mexico right now. It is a new strain that seems to be pretty virulent. I don't usually post prepper stuff on my blog because I know a lot of people aren't into it. But I'd suggest going to the store and getting a few weeks worth of supplies if you don't already have them. If this spreads to the US, you may be home for a few weeks trying to avoid it. I'm going to the store today to get more stuff.
