EMP's go off, and life as you know it will cease.
No transportation of necessities. Water tower pumps - out. Banks - done. Grocery stores - emptied in hours. Refrigeration - none. Medicines - no more. Hospitals - done.
Here in the US, tens of millions dead within 30 days.

Can a EMP knock out the entire U.S. power grid??? I was under the impression they'd have maybe a state wide power effect.. I think the only people that might immediatly die are the people in the hospital..how much of the grid can they take down at 1 time?

Embrace the freedom from technology. It would not be easy considering how much our daily lives depend on technology, but there are times I've had to go months without a cell phone due to financial reasons, and it was actually quite liberating. Sure a cellphone is convenient and all, but I think it would be a good time for humans to get back in touch with nature and reality so to speak.
