Several years ago, perhaps 17 or 18, we had a terrific windstorm that hit L.A. County. The area around my home was without electricity for 3 days. The local 7-11 had no electricity for about 36 hours until they could bring in a large generator. No electricity meant they were not selling any product for the first 12 hours, then they went on a cash basis, open only during daylight hours until they got the generator online. Imagine this same scenario on a much larger, perhaps most of the state magnitude. What do you think you will be buying in most any store?
