A Wisconsin family says they knew they had a fallout shelter on their property but just now decided to uncover the entrance and open it up to see what was in it.
They said there was five feet of water in it and a bunch of metal boxes floating around. They pumped it out and opened the boxes to find perfectly preserved provisions!
Here is a link to the story and it has a slide show of what was in some of the metal boxes.
I was amazed and you will be too, to see what fifty year old goodies look like.
Those metal boxes must have been sealed tight, even the toilet paper looked like it was just put in yesterday!
I wonder what took them so long to find it and open it up?
I think I would clean the thing up and restock it!
H/T FARK, again, for the link.
I check that place several times a day, it is a news aggregator with a sense of humor.
