Better if you show up with a fish pole, and a 12-pack of amber ale.

I have gone through a week of no power after a hurricane and that was no fun but that would not even be close to what we are talking about.  The stores would not have the trucks coming from out of town like after a hurricane.  The water would be a real problem.  Like others have said, anyone who has anything would be under constant attack.  Really Scary.

The "prepping" industry has made a fortune off these fears. The preppers would be the first target if things got bad enough. They going to hold off the onslaught of all the attackers who will also be armed? Generators would be fried and the natural gas ones would work only if the utilities somehow stayed on line, which is not likely. Water would be the biggest concern. You may survive longer in rural areas but in the cities, forget it. Your neighbors would be your biggest enemies.

Stocking up on supplies sounds like a great idea, but how are you going to keep it? I tend to think that you will probably live longer if you have not hoarded items that you will be killed for. No way a few people with guns and ammo are going to hold off hoards of people that are starving and will do anything to survive.

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?~ Patrick Henry

A point lost of many which is why the prepping industry keeps growing. Wait until the military's supplies run low. Think they are going to get a court order to seize them when there is no law and order?  Cool

There is an excellent story I just finished reading.

"One Second After." (Fiction, but very down to earth and thrilling)

I've thought about this from time to time.  If we are nuked all bets would be off, water and food supplies outside of canned would be all we could eat.  Hell, I'm to old and tired to run, so I would protect what I've got for my family.  Wink
