Shows just how quickly things can go to hell. Now imagine a major city after EMP attack and there has been not electricity for a month and no idea when it will be restored.

She's coming in here to Mobile.
This will be the largest cruise ship to ever enter the Mobile ship channel. The ship is 115 feet wide and the narrow part of the ship channel is 400 feet.

The shipyards here are looking forward to the work.

“Shows just how quickly things can go to hell.”

My husband’s company would send a bunch of us to a foreign country every year for two weeks. On the first trip, on the plane, I noticed a husband and wife couple that were friends of ours, did not eat the food offered by the airline. They brought bottles of water and peanut butter and crackers. I asked them why they were doing this and they said food on a plane can be tainted plus things happen to planes like being on the runway for hours, so they always had their own food and water. This made total sense to me and from then on I took water and peanut butter/cracks in a carry on bag. We did eat the food offered by the airline but we had that extra in case there was a problem with water or food before we got off that plane.

I would have done the same thing getting on a ship - take water and peanut butter/crackers. Once you turn your body over to an airline or ship, you are theirs. If the plane or ship screws up, there you are.

I will never get on another ship.

Makes me glad I don’t live in the city. As was shown in the pilot episode of “Revolution” (the only episode I have watched), millions of urbanites will die under such a scenario.
