Isidore and Bonnie Corwin of Claymont, Delaware, are praying for the best but preparing for possible dark days as a result of the Y2K bug. The pair have helped form a support group that meets twice monthly to address preparing for the possible disruptions in electricity, water and food processing. They aren't stockading themselves in their apartment, just stocking up on a variety of basic supplies and they urge any to do the same thing. "You better do it soon, though, because by July everything's going to be running out," Isidore advises.
