    I lived in the SF BAY area during their last "Big One". Aside for some lost power and collapsed freeway, life went on. A few knick knacks broken at home, more damage at work and longer traffic jams. I saw a lot worse in Kentucky from tornadoes. In either case, continue prepping and the chips will fall where the chips fall.

    Good morning TMT Tactical,

    You provided the ultimate requirement: "continue prepping".

    Those are all good things IMO.

    Wonder if he's telling the truth about only having two days of food, or playing Devil's Advocate to actually encourage preparedness?

    Good morning Gate Crasher,

    It doesn't matter that much from our perspective.

    Just the key phrases are what's needed, eg: "X days of food". The reader must use the appropriate number for the inventory level.

    Of course the author is teasing readers to motivate them to prepare such as via neighbor email groupings.

    Guy is a moron who has basically given up on life. "Whoa is me. I'm a widower, hopefully my kids will come save my ass when I've just given up to staying in my yard eating berries. No reason for me to pitch in to save my own ass." Wonder what he's going to do if when the "big one" hits it happens to not be berry season.

    I don't think he's trying to provoke others to prepare. I don't read this article as satire, I think he knows it's an issue but has given up responsibility for his existence to anyone else.

    I think a very telling statement from this sheep is this:
    "...tide them over until a massive governmental and nonprofit relief effort is able to swing into action and save as many lives as possible."

    He assumes someone will come save his ass. He better hope there are a lot of blackberries and rain.

    Country Guy,

    Different perspectives.....

    Reading "massive governmental..." ...... If there was massive governmental and nonprofit relief efforts, his neighbors wouldn't be asking him to affiliate if even on the email list !

    Blueberries or blackberries in the backyard: LOL

    The author has some plans.

    I read something more between the lines. CG: I agree he has probably given up on life, but maybe it isn't an "Oh Woe is Me" attitude. I think he was devastated by the loss of his wife, and his son and daughter aren't close enough to help. I don't think he is waiting for a massive government relief effort to help him. I think he doesn't care if he goes. With no family to take care of he feels no need to prepare.

    It is very sad to see someone give up, but it happens every day. We have all seen it.

    I laughed when I read it because I thought it was a brilliant satirical piece of work. So many people who have their heads in the sand and loads of excuses for not preparing for disasters will relate to the story.

    It was also a subtle warning.
