Sandy: Electric Gone; Gas Turned off for Safety; Water plant in my area literally blew up.

Solution? Live someplace else for a while. We can make due with very little. I've eyed some generators . . . but they require gasoline. That's a problem because the gas stations were inoperable (Sandy times) and, although they now have mandated electrical backup generators, they aren't any good if there are no fuel deliveries.

Just "get the hell out of Dodge" is the plan. Based on what's coming will determine where we go and what we take (vs. what we put in large plastic chests). A little food in the fridge will not be anything like a priority.


(oh, yes - there was bottled water hoarding, as well, for COVID-19 - a commodity I all but never buy).
