I suspect very much that on September 1st we will be saying the same things we will say on August 1st. No major UFO-related issue will happen.
Having said that, the real question was, "What do we do?" I think a lot of us SAY we're going to DO something, then never do. Then when the lights go
out, we're unprepared. The infrastructure is more fragile than we realize. A stray bird can put out the power. Living in Miami, the OP knows what can
happen, but it can happen anywhere. I'm a strong proponent for everyone to do the following:
1. Have a source of clean water readily at hand. If you live near a stream or lake, fine. If you've got a hot tub, that's 450 gallons right there.
Bottom line is you need a source of fresh water that is more than a few gallon containers in the garage.
2. Have some serious food stored. MREs suck, but they're easy to get. If you can go dry food in nitrogen cans, get that. Get what hey call a year's
worth. You'll eat it in half that time anyway.
3. Get a diesel and convert to biodiesel. You can put a 300 gallon tank in the garage safely and fill it with soybean oil for a price competitive with
gasoline. Not only can you run your vehicle, you can run a generator and even an oil furnace with the same stuff. It's a lot easier on the environment
than dino-oil as well. You cab breathe the fumes and not hurt yourself or anything else.
4. Get a diesel generator. Rn it on biodiesel. It will work fine, really.
Then, if the stuff hits the fan, you are still mobile, warm, and in business. This can't protect you from everything, and it can't protect you long
term, but it will allow you to slide by a few months and besides, it will make you feel really good. Then, Bring it on!
