    Home work to do...

    It is Saturday morning at 5AM and the event is major. You woke up early because of the dogs barking.
    Doesn't matter what the event is, but come Monday, no one is going to work and by then the stores will not have much to purchase because of panic buying.


    • The power will fail in 24 to 36 hours.
    • You have two extra family members with their own cars for the weekend and they have to stay with you for the duration.
    • You own a car and a pickup truck.
    • Your house has a septic system and 220 volt well.
    • No aid to you area for months and things won't be normal for at least 6 months.
    • Today is October 5th to help you put yourself in the right mind set.
    • You live on 7 acres with few neighbors, 7 miles from a town of 1,600 with an older style Walmart and smaller grocery stores.
    • Your house and property is not in danger from the event.
    • You have some chickens, dogs and cats.
    • The stores are taking credit cards, checks and cash.
    • You have a wood stove, chain saw, ax and an assortment of tools normally encountered with someone who owns land with equipment.
    • You won't be able to travel to escape the disaster.



    Everyone does a quick inventory and you have enough food and supplies for 3 weeks for all 5 adults.

    The guns you own are a 22 rifle and pistol with 500 rounds, a 12 gauge shotgun with 300 shells and a 9 mm pistol with 300 rounds.


    What you going to do?

    Prayer comes to mind.
    We are better prepped than this and we live in Indy so it is hard to put myself in that scenario.

    Well crap. If I had known all that happened yesterday morning, I might not have gone to the range today.

    Start by filling all available containers with potable water.

    Dig a pit latrine.
    Cook and eat what will spoil as fast as is convenient. Start smoking, canning or drying meat as you can get it thawed.

    Take really good care of the chickens.

    I'd sned everyone out to max out the credit cards and buy as much fuel as I could including containers, then batteries, containers for water (and fill them immediately upon getting home), an inverter to use with one of the vehicles, boots and socks, bleach, soap, first-aid consumables, rubbing alcohol (multiple uses), aluminum foil, paper products, nitrile gloves, N95 masks, refill prescriptions, duct tape, wire, rolls of visqueen and/or tyvek, feed for the animals, canned and other nutritionally dense food that doesn't need refrigeration (e.g. peanut butter).

    Wait. I'd also go online and download some list of things you'd need for an emergency because I'd be panicking and would forget things, then divide the list among the people to get as much of the stuff as they could.

    • The power will fail in 24 to 36 hours. Purchase generator and fuel, hopefully enough for 7 months
    • You have two extra family members with their own cars for the weekend and they have to stay with you for the duration. One will stay and guard the place while the other drives empty vehicles out and full vehicles back in.
    • You own a car and a pickup truck. Put to use hauling supplies. Need storage system for gas.
    • Your house has a septic system and 220 volt well. See power above.
    • No aid to you area for months and things won't be normal for at least 6 months. Send relative for medical supplies. Perscriptions may be a problem for some.
    • Today is October 5th to help you put yourself in the right mind set. Winter is coming!! How harsh is forecast?
    • You live on 7 acres with few neighbors, 7 miles from a town of 1,600 with an older style Walmart and smaller grocery stores. Restock pantry
    • Your house and property is not in danger from the event. Establish perimeter to protect from looters.
    • You have some chickens, dogs and cats. Petfood from wallyworld.
    • The stores are taking credit cards, checks and cash. Max out EVERYONE'S cards if needed. Your staying, your contributing.
    • You have a wood stove, chain saw, ax and an assortment of tools normally encountered with someone who owns land with equipment. Can be handled later, should have wood cut for upcoming winter then some.
    • You won't be able to travel to escape the disaster. Protect the home front.

    What you going to do?
    Get an early start making a list and filling it soon as possible. Most people will either wait until Sunday night and grab bread, milk, pop, and chips or wait for the government. If they are staying they will need to kick in guns, ammo, money, labor so we all survive. Reality may prevent getting all the supplies wanted but some is better than none.

    In a serious event the stores would be empty very rapidly. If the grid was down it would most likely be cash and possibly checks if they know you. Small town probably so. Do you keep a reasonable cash stash in the safe for such things...???
    Living out in the fringes might be a plus. But also having more than a short amount of food reserves is not.
