My nails are already a mess, so no worries here!
For Dh and I, surviving a worldwide blackout wouldn't be too much of a problem. We both know how to hunt and live off the land. We have great survival skills, which we are teaching to our children. We have plenty of non-perishable food stocked up(enough for a year and a bit), and plenty of water. Dh is skilled with ranged weapons and hand to hand combat, and I am skilled with swords and staves, as well as hand to hand combat(Ju jitsu...though I am probably a bit rusty, as I haven't had to use it. I've also learned a few things from my uncles and dad to protect myself from perverts. lol). During the winter months, it will be rough, but this is weather that we are used to, so it won't be too much of a problem...especially if we build an igloo! Those things get nice and toasty inside if built correctly.
