I'm curious why people have made that decision. Not throwing stones. Curious.
I live near Annapolis and I keep a store of food on hand. Like I said, cases of MRE's and jugs of water. Why?

Hurricane Isabel ring any bells? The hurricane last summer (I forget the name) killed power for everyone around me for nearly 2 weeks.

I'm on a well, so if I lose power, I have no electricity to pump the water. No electric stove either. I have the boat's alcohol stove and a propane and charcoal grill for cooking. Grocery stores cleaned out, etc.

FEMA advises having a few days of canned foods and jugged water stored in your house. It seems like common sense. I can't understand why preparedness seems to baffle you.
