Manufacturers down here were 4 to 6 weeks out before the storms.
Many of us can remember Katrina and tracking down houses that were abandoned at a truck stop or on the side of the highway, en route because the driver could make so much more money pulling for FEMA “right now.”
There is legitimate reason for concern.
If they commandeer a large portion of production/plants, all of us independents are going to feel that hit and, depending on your suppliers, that could be a BIG hit. ##
The scale of the loss in TX may lead to legally negating NIMBY as well. That would make the danger much greater for the independents. ## (Editor’s Note: Crawford is responding to the reports about FEMA taking over production lines, and the potential impact on independent retailers, communities and producers. See the most report, linked here.)
