Well if it happened during the day, I wouldn't do much at first. I'd try not to open the fridge/freezer too much. If it happened at night, I may
whip out some candles, but it would depend on what was going on at the time and how much light I felt as though I needed. If I really needed a lot of
light I have a coleman electric camping lantern.
If after about 12 hours the power hadn't come back on I would start to become more concerned. I would then go to the grocery to some extra
After that I'd make my weapons available should I need them. I would also start calling people if I could get a signal and if my phone wasn't dead
planning our next potential moves in a collaborative effort.
After another twenty-four hours if there wasn't any news as to the cause of the power outage I would bug-out and go to a friends private property
that's within about 30 minutes of where I live. This private land has a pond that has fish in it and is on a large plot of land surrounded by a large
iron fence. There are only two ways into that land and one of them requires a key plus it's outside the city even if just barely, making it's
location somewhat ideal imo because it has potential resources nearby without the madness of the hordes of people in the city being constantly around.
When I wen there I would take everything I could carry in my car/s. I'd take all our camping gear, any food we (me and my wife) could fit in the car,
our child, and if I still had enough room, our pets (specifically the cats, might let the corn snake go(he'd be better off)). If there was any way to
carry even more, I'd start bringing archived information from this age. I'd pack my video camera, and my external hard-drive. If electricity were to
return or if we could find a way to produce it, both of these items could be invaluable int he future, especially the external because it has about 80
gigs of music on it.
Anyway, I could get more detailed, but that's pretty detailed as it is. Any questions?
