A few pictures of the food section of a Walmart stores in the Charlotte, NC area just prior to the winter storm a couple of weeks ago.
That was just a storm… a temporary phenomenon that everyone knew would pass in a few days. Just as everyone knew those shelves would be restocked within in a day or two.
Try to imagine the aftermath of an EMP event that would NOT PASS IN A DAY OR TWO because the recovery time would be measured in years, decades or in the event of a Solar EMP more likely in generations.
Look at those shelves and think about them NOT BEING RESTOCKED because the transportation network is broken and would not be fixed for a long, long time.
Then finally look at your family and ask yourself how you will care for them, feed them and shelter them what those pictures are the reality you face.
