It’s Who You Know

My next door neighbor is a very handy guy. In addition to being a fellow physics student and computer geek, he’s also a former bicycle mechanic (useful). On a somewhat more personal note, he’s also a Mormon.
Long story short, I, like The Commander, have been invited to visit the local Mormon cannery. Being able to can fresh foods at near-cost is really handy. Evidently one can also buy freshly-canned foods from the cannery, rather than having to do the canning yourself.
Leaving the religious bits aside, the Mormons certainly seem to have their ducks in a row when it comes to preparing for disasters.
