Here is the situation - I have made it pretty simple so it can apply to all; You are sitting in your house, watching tv. An emergency broadcast plays on your tv announcing that this Zombie infestation has taken place and youre told that martial law is now in order.
What do you do?
Do you bunker down and grab as much tinned food as possible, and try wait it out?
Or do you head home, rip out the old revolver and raid the nearest gun store, arm up, and become a real life chain suit?
Option 2 does sound amazing, but where i stay the most lethal thing i can get my hands on is my axe. No arm. No creds. Nothing...
As soon as i hear about whats happened i head to the nearest supermarket, and i fight and claw my way through the rabid hordes of scared shoppers and grab as much tinned food and bottled water as possible. Food. CHECK.
Luckily for me, my supermarket is opposite a garden centre so i head in there and take as many packets of seeds as possible (for plants that grow fruits, vegetables etc). I then proceed home where i barricade the whole house with wood that i have in my garden (we have a coal fire, we store logs and planks to burn in the winter). Fort. CHECK.
I take all the DIY tools i own and i take my family up to my attic. We have one that can only be accessed via a hatch in the ceiling of the upstairs hall so if we head up there and close the hatch we will be safe. Hopefully.
Before sealing ourselves up there, i run as much water as i can out of the taps and fill pots, pans, plastic containers etc so that if the water is shut off we will have extra reserves. So everything seems fine so far; we have food, water, light weaponry, safe sleeping arrangements, and barricaded house.
Lastly; my attic has a window panel leading onto the roof, and my roof is shaped funny; my house is a square in shape, and on top of the roof it all slopes in, forming a sort of bowl (water isnt trapped, there are gutters leading out of it), so what i do is i fetch soil from my garden and i fill up that "bowl" and plant my seeds. These can act as a longer term food supply if they grow succesfully.
So seal up, Sleep tight, ration well and be quiet.
Did you like my plan? got any problems with it? let me know. Would be cool to hear yours.
