Well, you asked so I will tell you:
1) Grocery store shelves will be pretty much cleared within 3 days. By the 3rd day, at the latest, thieves will be waiting to steal your groceries,
either in the parking lot or by following you home.
2) By the 4th day, every hunter, or every person who ever imagined himself as a hunter, will be in the woods and field, regardless of whether it is
hunting season or not. Almost ALL game will be gone within 2 weeks, tops, due to trapping and hunting.
3) By day 5, unethical urbanites will start banding together and breaking into homes and apartments in their neighborhoods searching for food. They
will start with elderly because they will offer little resistance and because the elderly are the only people who remember what is to be in want of
food. They usually keep a "rainy day" supply of food on hand.
4) By day 7, all people's homes will be targeted. Right about this same time, people will figure out the reliable (and illegal) ways of taking
fish from ponds, rivers and lakes. The fish population will be decimated within a week to 10 days.
5) By day 8 or 9, bands of unethical urbanites will start going out into suburban and rural areas in search of food. Believing (rightly so) that
there is safety in numbers, they will attack homes with reckless abandon. At first, they will use the cover of darkness for their attacks.
Eventually, they will strike at all hours.
At first, a well armed homeowner may repel an attack, but the marauders WILL return in greater numbers, suspecting that the homeowner must have
something worth defending. It is at this time, that the only families that remain safe are those that band together with other families. "Safety in
numbers" works BOTH ways.
Once FEMA starts delivering some food to the urban centers, the urban marauders will once again turn their attention back to urban areas, preying
first on the elderly again, and so forth.
It is critical for rural families to band together by this time at the very latest. Waiting any longer will be disastrous, assuming they made it this
It is worth noting that, during periods of stress, we all seek things that bring us comfort and/or pleasure. Women and children will suffer mightily
at the hands of these curs unless they are repelled.
Without preparation, you have little chance of surviving those days.
Hmmm...maybe I should start a thread...
