Why is there always a run on bread? I mean, my family can barely put away a loaf of bread before it expires. Do people really eat THAT much bread - such that they can't go without it for a few days?

Because if there's no power to cook, you can make sandwiches.
Also bread is a daily delivery item so if trucks can't get to the stores it won't be as readily available as the longer shelf life items are.

I used to wonder the same thing, until the Jan (late 90's?) ice storm that closed roads, schools, stores,... for almost a week.

Living over the mountain has nothing to do with it. I was in the Target in Jones Valley at 2pm on January 6th and they had no ground beef what so ever. None of any kind. No ground sirloin, no ground chuch no ground beef of any kind. My husband came home from work and said he was told at work that the Krogers was the same way and there isn't a Krogers over the mountain.

So there's no bread in the Big Cove Publix and no beef in the Jones Valley Target so we can conclude Big Cove people eat too many carbs and Jones Valley people have elevated LDL.
