Interesting reading, Thank you.
Here in SA our mini-substations and substations are being targeted in “white” areas. Mostly to try and break down the economy and to steal copper. Civilians from Community Forum patrol 24/7 to prevent power outages that can be as long as 7 days. People do not go into a flat panic, but are used to it. Most people have got fire place, to cook or use gas stoves. People in cities are beginning to put up JoJo water tanks like on the farms. We use water filters daily.
Petrol stations still hits a standstill, but more from people striking to deliver gas. We are very used to traffic lights being out of order on a daily basis. (incompetent people service the lights or they get tampered with) People take turns at crossings… except for taxis..hehe
