    I’m pretty sure we got the last loaf of bread at our store in Spartanburg. We usually bake all our bread but that cannot happen if the power is out so better safe than not have bread. But, if the power stays on I think I will give it to my neighbor who has 5 kids at home since we are not keen on store bought bread and we don’t have any kids left at home to feed it to. 🙂
