If there was a world-wide black out eKnuckles Due February 13; Florida 3475 posts

So if you have seen the show revolution, you will know what I am getting at.
Say electricity disappears tomorrow. No one knows why, there is no bringing it back. What would you do? How would you try to survive? Do you have any knowledge how, or would you be screwed from being so dependent on 'the system'?



Do you think there would be good that could come from it? Or only negatives?

I'd be glad I'm breast feeding and don't need to warm up any bottles :)

That said, I do think I could survive, but I think the world would be a train wreck. It would practically be the apocalypse.

I would move further north... I can assure you I would not survive in Florida hahaha. my AC is on year round... so after I moved, I would be thankful that I breastfeed and don't have to worry about that. Then I would be glad I eat mostly whole foods and so does my daughter... fruits and veggies can be eaten raw :)

I'm a prepper, so I have this scenario covered.

We have a stock of food put aside, a garden, we have rain barrels, we have a generator with extra gas and we are installing both solar and wind power sources...we'd be fine.

It would be like camping. Might be pretty cold, but we have plenty to be bundled up. We have kerosene heaters and some of those camping stoves. Water would probably be bad, so I would assume that boiling it would help...I'm not sure.



It would be boring as all hell. I went two weeks without power from a hurricane, and I thought I was going to die from lack of entertainment!

I see some good in it. Mostly the lack of chemicals in food, in our water supplies, hormones injected into our animals etc.

I would sob and probably die. It's freezing outside.

I have food stocked for a year, water, guns and ammo, heritage seeds, land, building a bunker, and have taken classes in survival. We also stockpile cigarettes and gold and silver for bartering.

Overwhelmingly negatives. I live in a cold climate. My realtives were hit hard by Sandy. It was/is awful.
Thans for the reminder! I have to go to Costco today to get some more stock for my basement!

Not concerned with sanitation? have you ever gone camping for long?

I was thinking we would have closer-knit communities or at least hold on to the family relationships more, we would depend on them much more.

God damn...
I barely have a stockpile for anything! Way to be covered, I'm jealous.

I think there will be riots. It happens every time there is a natural disaster. That's what the bunker and guns are for.
