Electricity ends today....first steps you take?

And you can't say "drive down to KVR's place."

I'm interested to here the instinctual responses of OGers. What factors play into that response? Do you have a spouse and kids to consider? Are you an urban or rural dweller? How might that impact things?

IMO, apocalypse is as far away as a terminally failed electrical grid. Phone Post 3.0

Take the half steer out of freezer, cut into strips, and make sun dried beef. Phone Post 3.0

Riot with the urban youths and blame trump. Phone Post 3.0

Kill everyone around my neighbourhood and start salting the meat. Phone Post 3.0

Since I'm a supervisor in a power plant, I put that shit back on....

opieandjimmy - I've been thinking about this cause of the books I'm reading.

Try to fill all sinks and bathtub with water.

Probably kill all my neighbors that I can for food and water and guns.

Just try and stay alive for as long as possible. Phone Post 3.0

lol...power's out? Let's kill the neighborhood!
How are you drawing water with the power out? Phone Post 3.0

Load my camper up and head for the woods. Someplace defensible like a state park with gates.

I plan on making my RV self-sustained with solar, fresh water rain catch and everything else I need.

I would hide out until the worst was over then make excursions for supplies. Phone Post 3.0

1. Start my generator so I can run my well pump, and containerize as much water as I can.

Generators are nice for times like the apocalypse, yes. Phone Post 3.0

Just go about life a best I can like I did when the power went out in 2003?

Or if that fails, grab my bug out bag and run into the woods with my silver, no plumbing and no electricity.

God damn it I didn't even think of that.

Well the two cases of water I have will have to do till I off the hood Phone Post 3.0


Your local water system is pressurized, you will have some water from the resevoirs for a little bit.

Run a generator like they do in 3rd World countries when the power goes out.

And fuck you to all you mf'ers who instantly start killing your neighbors at the first sign of a power outage.. Tf is wrong with you? Lol..tf they do that at? Phone Post 3.0

Province. Alberta



We are tied into the WECC though so I can spare a few electrons all the way to to the Cali Mexican border.



But only for OGers.

My first thought was my generator. But if power is gone, the gas station can't pump Phone Post 3.0

Nice try, Homer, but you can't turn the power back on.

It's over, over.

The lights ain't comin' back on. Phone Post 3.0

I kill all the neighborhood dogs immediately. Then I start up my huge generator and continue watching the Dolphins play.

I would like to know this as well

And what if an EMP fries the boards? Phone Post 3.0


LOL



You didn't give a scenario. 



Change the boards I guess. We have spares for that kind of thing. Also 6-8 hrs of DC to repair some shit.



 



Now if your saying all distribution lines are wiped out, well then we're fucked fren.
