Youve got a palace? Its going to be tough keeping the chandeliers lit without power. But good planning is good planning.
As to the whole 85% of the urban population being wiped out. I could actually see that happening. Notice that most who post in this forum dont live in cities or are trying to get out of them, might be something to that.
The 85% isnt a concern to me, they are the sheeple, they really arent alive in my mind anyways. Just go through the motions, whine when they dont get a raise and turn on the newest episode of Survivor at night.
The 15% who do make it would concern me greatly if I lived near a major metro area. Once death and chaos reign in the cities, these people are coming to a rural town near you. They have allready proven survivors, have any weapons available, have blood on their hands, and have probably massed into functioning gangs of some sort. This is certainly something worth preparing for.
As to what to prepare for and why. Get ready for anything, or you will be prepared for nothing. I truely hope and pray that all of my labor and time spent preparing for the worst winds up a waste of time, but one never knows. I would rather have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

Your preparedness is about to be tested.
Are you prepared to bug out today?

Yes, those men are my brothers. When they are not following orders from a government that is trying to round up my family, or take my guns.
Look at what happened after Katrina. They rounded people up, stuffed them in FEMA camps, and took the guns of LAW ABIDING CITIZENS! They decided to give them back after two years when they were just a pile of rusted metal.
Now i guess there is a reason to bug out.
