When I was out of power for 5 days I found myself reverting to a hunting and gathering mode. I keep saying I will be more prepared in the future. I think the time to prepare is now. With China having the ability to shut down our entire electric grid with cyber attacks we could lose power like this for months. The setback would be economically devastating for us all. Many sources say it is not only a possibility but a certainty that it will happen and in the not too distant future as well.
