Grid Down! When The Lights Go Out Reloaded
As soon as a grid down event occurs, I will start working on this list immediately.
#1 – Locate Family Members
My family is my top priority. I want to try and track them down and get them home. They all know what they need to do in this event, so worrying about them is not too much of an issue. . . unless, of course, they don’t show up.
#2 – Investigate Cause of Power Outage
The next item on the list is to find out how much of a problem this is. Is this just a power outage or is it more severe like grid down?
If it is an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), almost every form of communication will be down. Only EMP hardened radio stations will be broadcasting; as long as they didn’t take a direct missile hit. If other radio stations are broadcasting using backup generators then it is not an EMP.
At that point, I would get my HAM radios out of their faraday cages and determine how far and how severe the event is by talking with other HAM radio operators.
Once I have determined this really is severe, and most likely a grid down, then I will continue with my list.
#3 – Final Trip to the Grocery Store
Go to the closest grocery store with cash and see how much of my “clean out the store” list I can get.
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12
