Once again it kept me interested. I actually stayed up until 1am to finish it. But most of the other survivors seemed so darned whiney and needy. You can bet your a** that if I were in that situation, I would have been one of the first to be volunteering for the nasty jobs, such as removing the bodies and such. But then I do not subscribe to the handout mentality, expecting to sit back and be taken care of by others.
I enjoyed reading your story, and it gave me a wonderful idea. My husband has mentioned taking a piece of the garage and building an extra room...now I think I'll suggest we make it a shelter like the one in your story - you know, in case of tornadoes ?
My husband isn't much of a prepper, but he lets me do what I want as long as I don't inconvenience him too much, or can give him a reason that seems logical and down-to-earth to him.
Preparing for tornadoes is one thing, preparing for the total economic collapse of our country (and others), not so much.
