Is anyone else hoarding blankets? Like old army blankets? Having a gut feeling it's going to get really cold?

Is anyone else hoarding blankets? Like old army blankets? Having a gut feeling it's going to get really cold?
I must not be the only one. There were warehouses full of old wool surplus army blankets left over from WWII and Korea that were barely touched for decades and in the last few years it seems like they have about all sold out and prices on what's left has soared.

Are people having some kind of instinctive gut feeling that it's going to get cold, not just normal cold winter cold, but more like nuclear winter / supervolcano cold?

Not likely in Illinois. The birds seem to be coming back already. I was thinking about ordering some mylar blankets, but it's nothing my standard snowboarding gear can't handle.

Per a recent thread, the Polar Vortex may collapse starting around Jan. 21-27. Due to the mid-atmosphere warming up, it will "dissolve" the winds holding up the North Pole cold air. The cold air will "escape" and head south causing accute cold over the Rocky Mountains and probably elsewhere.

I've always been a blanket hoarder. I buy new ones every year and stash the old ones away in those air tight space bags. You never know when you might need them. I'm always cold plus I live in the north east... so it's not uncommon to lose power during winter storms and not have heat for days. I refuse to go to emergency shelters.
I'd rather wrap up in 3 blankets and cook & boil water for whore baths on my gas grill.

If it gets really cold, you would do well to get a tent.
A tent with a matress in the lounge would keep you warm.

It's like a sponge bath I guess... like, when you have no running hot water because there's no power or heat... so you have to boil water on a gas grill or over a fire and only wash the important parts - face, hands, underarms, southern parts and feet.

Same here. Sleeping bags are much better though.

Forget the wool blankets. If you want warm, you need a poncho liner. Those things are great! Extremely warm and light-weight.
