Think about this. All over the world the power goes out. How would you cope? People in the cities will be most affected I guess. I live in a rural area and am capable of being self suffiecient. Being rich won't help people either. Unless they have made some preparation. How would you cope?

I am glad that I am in the country as well and very well prepared for power outages. We are prepared because we have had to deal with it on a number of occasions. We have 2 large generators and our own fuel supply. Ihave 2 wood stoves in my house and a nice big wood shed. Since there is no such thing as a conveniece store, my pantry is always full. Flash lights, a wind 'em up radio, candles, lanterns, batteries, well water, etc are just normal things to have around. I rather enjoy a power outage.....after chores are done.

But your fuel will only last so long. You are certainly well prepared and I'm taking notes. I certainly hoped for more responses so we could be of help to each other before anything so catastrophic happens. Forewarned is forearmed.

it would be hard at certain times of the year ,but could be done because I am an outdoor person and love primitive camping cookig over camp fires and have always lived by a lake ,river or stream ... love fish and veggies and fruit and wild berries ...water would be the hardest for some people to get , Where I live now I would have many resorces handy ...
