Get use to misery, 0bama voters.
It’s going to be this way with 0bama in office.
0bama likes us to be miserable. Makes him happy.
Doesn’t matter who you are, what color you are, where you come from.
We’ll all be thrown under the bus, maybe we already have.
VOTE HIM OUT!
I’m set up for EMP..
I lucked into some almost free solar panels. Enough to
run fans,lights, my QRP ham gear, and stuff like the microwave
for short bursts. Got a selection of ham and other gear set up
to survive (I hope) and if need be I can whip up some simple ham gear from parts.
I hope my hard drives survive if this ever happens, got 6TB of data I’d hate to lose.
If it meant never having to hear Atlantic coasters whining again, I’d launch an EMP against them right now. You lost power for a few days, get over it and stfu
The best (and only real) preparation is falling into the hands of our loving Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is coming soon to take us out of here before He brings this judgment on the world. If you haven't received Him as your Savior, why not do it now? Just ask Him to come into your heart. It's that simple - but the results are profound because His death on the cross made it all possible by His grace.
Interesting, we had this same type storm in Memphis on July 22, 2003 and it was practically ignored by the mass media.
I think we'd actually be better off once we made the necessary adjustments.
No more cable TV or Internet or surveillance drones would not be all bad.
I am sorry but except in a "Dies the Fire" fantasy where the laws of physics get rewritten the power will come back on.
It may take a while, even a few years at worse but it will be back. Making a generator is not that hard, they were doing it in the 1700's. Got a river or stream? You have the engine to turn the wheels to generate electricity. No flowing water? Wind will work. You will need to make wet cell batteries but they were doing that 2000 BC.
Will we have "all we need"? Probably. Not all we want but enough to get things back up and running. And that will be built on.
In case of EMP that took down the entire grid all over the world (Unlikely as that is) with in a week you would have some clever folks generating their own electricity. Certainly with a month.
Getting the entire thing back up and running would only take a few years if people were properly motivated. I have no doubt they would be motivated.
The trick be surviving until things began to sort themselves out.
It would be pointless, for example to protect all my electric devices by whatever means, if the distribution control points fail. Or the generation controls, even if they control relative "low-tech" but huge hydroelectric generating facilities. Can those control rooms be "isolated" and protected from EMP by any reasonable means?
I have no idea, but can't help wondering if anyone does.
The difference is, there will be nearly instant recovery from a heat wave. The impact of EMP would decimate the population and recovery would take years, if not decades.
