What would you do if the power grid failed for more than a week


If the power grid was down for any length of time water and sewer would begin to be a problem as well as food and heat. Do you have any plan should a long term catastrophe cripple basic utilities

    We need to learn lessons for India! The power grid everywhere is very delicate and America, especially the cities, are not prepared. Thanks for your answer.

    excellent, I don't think many of us are that prepared. May I ask, what if a crisis extended beyond the supplies you've stored do you have any contingency plan?

    You sir sound like you are in fine shape. My only worry might be a storm sever enough to wash toxins into the water supply. Is that a concern where you are? Also, I think you are likely to find you have a lot of company
