    This thread is about preparedness not, thievery.

    What high horse? And the thread is about an American Balck-out and what you would do... not just preparedness. You are the one talking about killing, not me.

    Your answer to the question doesn't interest me, which is why I didn't ask you.

    We were all lucky on LI during Sandy. I worked at Long Beach and still can't believe no one died since almost no one evacuated. There were large pockets of areas where the power was still on, so we could still get supplies. My hotel didn't have power, but WalMart next door did, so I was able to resupply after a few weeks. In the scenario we're discussing, no one would have power for a long, long time.
    Preparing over panicking means distinguishing between real dangers and imagined ones. People got by just fine for most of human history without "power for a long, long time" but there aren't many realistic scenarios where power in the United States would be out for a long time without people receiving food, water, etc. anyway. For chrissake, the United States was capable of supplying Berlin with food and water despite being deep in Soviet territory during the Cold War!!

    There isn't going to be a zombie apocalypse but if there was your not going to be prepared for it no matter how many underground tanks of water you have.
