Very interesting. Not weird at all. Living down here in hurricane alley. We go through survival mode on any given year.
One storm, some years back, took out all our power grids.
Too the power companies credit. They, along with outside companies. Had to, with just cause. Restore hospital and emergency services power first. Triage.
Our small community went 12 days without power.
Living in the swamp here
we had a lot of locals that dont read survival forums. They just take living off the land for granted.
Too them, it just meant they could not turn the lights on.
We all worked together till help could arrive. Ate and drank fine.
I like this survival forum.
Pretty sure us people out here in the swamps and countryside, could survive for quite a while.
Problem would be people fleeing the cities, who do not even know how too start a fire.
I guess you could say were already mostly prepared, if people leave us alone.
