sd1953 is on a distinguished road
I live in Florida, we have hurricanes. The state tells us we will be on our own for 72 hours after the storm. It takes that long to mobilize resources to assist. I worked as a volunteer after hurricane Charlie in 2004. The damage done was amazing. The mobilization was also impressive. But there could be complications that require us to be on our own for more than 72 hours. Most of these posts are about planning for high probability events that will disrupt the LOCAL community. This should NOT be confused with the Armageddon acolytes who are predicting a global collapse of society. Planning for the latter event requires moving to a compound in northern Idaho and buying lots of guns and bullets. (And leaving your boat very far away.)
