In such a situation I'd be less concerned about massive stocks of food, and more concerned with looters, ensuring the pipes don't freeze, where my pets are, etc. Immediate concerns.
If shit got really bad I'd probably pack my bags and move somewhere else temporarily.
Stuff like saving grain seeds... that's a bit over the top. That's more like rebuilding society again, and that takes a bit more than just stocking up or setting up a plot of land for your rows of wheat.

Zombie apocalypse... Fucking bring it.

Apocalypse (longer-term outages and breakdowns of society, ie Mad Max/Revolution/The Road/etc)? Zombie apocalypse (or for that matter any really good pandemic, ie human-to-human transfer bird flu or ebola)? My girlfriend and I are probably in pretty good shape at the disaster level, but not as much for a full-blown apocalypse or zombies...

Dont bother with reprints of the book; much has been edited out. Try and find an original from 1971.
