To: null and void
No power, no water Windmills, wood stoves, solar panels, roof mounted wind generators, and small scale hydro, (water wheel driven)with plenty of clean water from different streams for drinking and irrigation, and animal power. Horses and mules to farm with. The ability to use a forge, a great collection of hand tools, and the knowledge to use them. Gun smithing training and experience, a fully stoked commercial reloading facility will keep us in ammo. Mainly good neighbors, many of them vets, who are well set up, well armed, and of a mind to protect what is ours.
We already have good food storage and for the most part live off the grid. Are we preppers?? Not really, we just live way out in the country and take care of ourselves.
Right now, this minute, if I called the cops and told them someone was shooting at me it would take over 45 minutes for anyone to respond. We are armed and already take care of any violent threats. If something bad happens to our society the city folks will not find help here. They will not be invited, wanted, or tolerated.

A lot depends on where “in the west” you are. If you have streams it’s way different than most of the desert southwest or central valley where water doesn’t freely flow.
You are prudent enough and well located enough to be OK.
