Yeah...I mentioned ELEnin and Planet X because even if they are hoaxes...sometime in the future, the odds are that something will strike Earth. Simply
looking at the geological scars of the earth prove this.
As for the ATMs...
Having gone through Hurricane Fran back in 1996 in NC... I remember the faces and desperation of so many people. I worked at a grocery store back
then...and we would haul pallets of ice straight from the truck, and before we coulod get back to the sales floor...it would be empty...the floor was
dry and it didn't even have a chance to melt.
That was about day 2-3... on day one...the power was off all over...and I couldn't work...so I went to our competition across town, knowing they had
a back up diesel generator for the refridgeration and registers..
It was eerie. The lights were off except for the emrgency lamps...people were crowding in there...all the good stuff like lighter fluid, charcoal,
matches, candles, batteries, can openers...anything like that was long gone. People were freaking out, just using their arms to wipe shelves of canned
goods off...not even knowing what they were buying... people were buying pig's feet and canned meats and pickled beets...they didn't even eat that
stuff in real life.
It looked exactly... and I mean exactly like what you would expect in a SHTF scenario. People couldn't access the banks and ATMs...no electricity and
communications. The lines were for cash only... their was a policeman up front and one in the back to keep things from getting to chaotic....surreal
Having seen that, I realized how vulnerable we were and I started from that day on to really get prepared. I had always been living along those lines,
but that really motivated me to live the lifestyle.
