To those who are wondering why.

It will be hell, so many many people fighting over so little.

They will become gangland, a very fast moving gangland where those who don't hold the water/food will be fighting for it and those that do won't last very long.

I'd be happy. I've got sub-zero sleeping bags and candles in the house. I would make into a family adventure time. It's cold enough outside to keep lots of foods fresh too. I think a lot of people would welcome some time in the dark. It's peaceful to be disconnected.

Re: What would you do if the power went out.
I used to live in the frozen north by a glacial lake. Some Saturday nights the the electric pole on the west side of the lake would get taken out by a drunk or a big blizzard would kill the power for days.

Wood burning stove made for little or no problems. Cooked on it too. Closed off one room to act as fridge. Put a Box on the north side of house, was the freezer.

Very peaceful.

Re: What would you do if the power went out.
First thing that I'd do is to phone someone in another province. Land lines work with no power. I still have an old phone that requires no power to work.
 Quoting: Final..Frontier

No such thing, sorry. Even old POTS phones required line voltage.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1239195


Cordless phones don't work without power because of the battery pack. But the old phones with cords work just fine.

There's been many times I've been without power but the landline phone worked because I always keep a cord phone around.

The only time a landline phone with cord wouldn't work is if the storm also took down telephone lines besides the power lines. More often than not I have telephone service when power is out.

Re: What would you do if the power went out.
If all the electrics were fried, if your generators didn't work.

All out, all gone.

And how would you react.

For one you won't have any idea how much area has lost power, and you don't know if and when it will come back up.

You're sitting there now in front of your computer and suddenly everything goes dark.

Satellites down, all comms down, radio down, all power including telephone lines down.

Everything we base our lives on today gone in 10 seconds.

You cannot contact anyone outside of your shouting distance and you have no information as to what's happened.

What would you do?

Realistically of course.

Re: What would you do if the power went out.
I think it is really easy for GLPers to say they would grab their bags and head out to another location. We are a bit more mentally prepared than 99% of the world. I think bugging out to another location is the last thing anyone should be doing. People outside of the know will be freaking like we have never seen before.
There would be massive looting and people would not be basing their actions on any future consequences.
I have my food storage, water stored, candles, wood and a fireplace and I have already prepped doors to my place with steal bars.
If the grids went down right now I would pull out a candle and stay put while the outside world kills its self off with madness.
How about you OTOC.. what would you do?

Re: What would you do if the power went out.
I would immediately do a check to see if it was just our power or if it was everything. If my car wouldn't start then I would know it would be time to batten down the hatches....and within 5 minutes I would be at a friends house to tell them something was wrong and start packing up food and supplies and then get over to my house. After that I can't say cause don't want the entire world to know how big of a group we are. Safety in numbers though.

Re: What would you do if the power went out.
First, I would make my way over to the flashlight nearest me since there are several ready around my house. Next, I would light the candle on the kitchen table. Last I would check for a dial tone on the phone and check to see if my cell phone works. After finding that all of those are not working, I would try my radio and also the short wave to see if any signals are picked up.
