That's a fair point, but you have to be aware that the sort of scenario which is playing out, will be crucial in terms of whether or not city living
is possible or advisable. Sure, if there is a major event which destroys the power grid, then you could make do.
But if your city could be a target for some sort of invasion or serious attack, it might be prudent to have a plan to be elsewhere when the crap
really hits the fan. Also, you have to consider natural disasters. Your city might not be near any major fault lines, but if a quake were to
destabilise an entire city, then again, staying there would be infinitely more dangerous than getting yourself and your people out and away from the
city, preferably directly away from the nearest fault.
There are many things to consider when deciding what action is appropriate. Geography, topography, the nature of the threat you are reacting to...
It's not a cut and dry "this is my plan, no matter what the situation".
If you are serious about planning for the worst day you can imagine, you have to have a plan for digging in, or bugging out, dependant on the
scenario at play. What works well for an earthquake, is going to be pretty useless in the event of an invasion of some sort, and what works
fantastically against an invasion is going to be next to useless in the event of a nuclear event within effective range of your town.
You have to think broadly about the nature of the situation, if your response to it is to be effective.
