An article in my local paper today discussed the backup plans in case our internet service was sabotaged. This came about because of the big outage a while ago where vandals removed a big chunk of fiber optic cable in Arizona. It appears the owners of the local internet companies are preppers. If you ask me I’d say fiction became reality quite a while ago. Plans have been put into place for WCS. But everyone knows…. Plans fall apart. They don’t live up to expectations. The day comes when the pipes freeze, a tornado hits or the 500kv line goes down and you’re on your own. The Preppers better have done more than collect PDFs and bought up farms.
