First off, I am a decently intelligent guy, but I know next to nothing about the power grid and how we actually receive electricity throughout the
I have been reading scenarios here and there about possible loss of the power grid due to an EMP, and I have read the massive sun flare theories. I
never put alot of credence into the stories, but I read about a "vision" that a guy had in which power was lost to the country and then there was just
absolute chaos. SOmething about the guys story struck a nerve.
Any board experts...what is the real world scenario if something were to happen to badly damage grids around the country? How many EMP blasts in the
atmosphere would it actually take to cripple the country? How long would it theoretically take to restore power if everything went at once? I am sure
t thathere are back ups and more back ups, kinda looking for something to level my head about the idea.
I have this nightmare of losing power for weeks in the winter, and my family and I having to fight off looters and crazy people trying to steal my
house. I have a small child and I find that things I used to never think about really bother me. Five years ago I really wouldn't have cared.
