Here in the US, it takes 24 hours to mobilize FEMA, NG, large scale road blocks, etc., according to what I have read….. This means that any decisions to get out of dodge must be quick and within about 12 hours of the onset of whatever happens here in the States.
The problem comes with where to go…. We are pretty well stuck here, right? Guess it means that we either get our own bug out location, go Grizzly Adams, or hope Whirlibird will take us in.
I think Ukrainians are in the same boat as we are to a large degree. We are as stuck as they are.
