For those of us who were kids back in the 50’s and 60’s, the fear of a nuclear attack was instilled into us by weekly air raid drills held in our school classrooms. We were also instructed to designate a corner area in our house basements as a fallout shelter and to stock a 2 week supply of food and water. During a recent inspection I came across one of those “designated” fallout shelter locations in the corner of an old basement. The really interesting find, however, wasn’t just the “shelter”, but the 2 week stock of supplies!
