the grid could go down due to a cyber attack,an EMP or a massive solar storm

results will be catastrophic


EMP Attack On America – Preppers Vs Non-Preppers In The First 72 Hours – Who Will Live, Who Will Die

"Grid Facts: Via WSJ 2014:

When FirstEnergy Corp. added a new substation in Pennsylvania a couple of years ago, a South Korean factory took about a year to make one of the big transformers, which then traveled by ship for 26 days to Newark, N.J.

There, a crane lifted the 400,000-pound box onto a train to Pennsylvania. At the end of its 7,000-mile journey in 2012, the equipment traveled on a centipede-like contraption with 192 wheels called a crawler, used to keep the heavy transformer from cracking axles or the road.

Total elapsed time from purchase order to delivery: about two years.

Now imagine that on a larger scale with the majority of the nation’s grids being down and needing replacement transformers."

And a massive CME would potentially leave the countries that manufacture transformers needing them too. Who do you think they would be most inclined to make them for - themselves or us?
And we have hundreds of transformers in our grid.... Shocked

The trouble is that the transformer manufacturing factories require electricity to make transformers.....The electricity requires transformers..........and you end up starting from scratch (banging 2 rocks together).

We have basic shortages now in the U.S. At our JIT grocery store deliveries. My store which is very busy sometimes has scarce shelves. Like I have said you need to go to SAMs or Costco ITSHTF.   I keep at least one year of food but that may not be enough for a CME or a Yellowstone super volcano but let's hope those are remote possibilities.

All we can do is our best people like my sister will be like deer in the headlights if any thing bad happens but she thinks I am nuts. So each to their own.
Always Be Prepared
