Many of you have watched a movie or seen a program on television that dealt with life over a hundred years ago, and thought to yourself, how life seemed so idyllic and simple then. Some may even wish we had those times once again. What if something unimaginable happened? What would life be like if we were hit by an EMP caused by solar storms stemming forth from the sun, or even something more sinister, an attack on our country by nuclear or other means that not only disrupted our power grid but also caused all electrical and electronic devices to stop working? How would you cope in this situation? What if the cause were never known? All you knew was that whatever was happening, the government was taking full advantage of it, even to suspending elections, the Constitution and having UN troops assisting to help control the population and individual states. This is the story of two men, Vinnie, a retired Police Officer, living in rural northern New Hampshire with his wife, mother-in-law, and Bernie, his feisty eighty-eight year old WW2 veteran friend. Vinnie is thrust into a situation where it is up to him to help take care of his family and neighbors. Vinnie always thought that in such an emergency, people would start to act crazy after three days of limited food and essential items. What surprised him most was that it took less than two days for his fears to come to true. He now has to deal with roving bands of looters, a lawless society and an unknown enemy. Was the whole world going crazy or was this just a bad dream?
