How would your life be affected if a magnetic-storm shut down electricity in your city?

    We have no idea what effects it would have on you.

    The question is weak, how big a storm? In a "Kerrington" size event you might not have electricity again for years, if ever. If the power outage lasts long enough for the fuel in the backup generators at the nuclear power plants to run out, they will explode and burn, spreading deadly amounts of radiation for thousands of square miles.

    If it is not that big, then you still have no water, no gas, no gasoline, no air conditioning, refrigeration or freezers, no sanitation (sewers use pumps), thousands of people and mabey no food supply. Also your phone, landlines have a 3 day battery backup, cell towers wont work, no radio stations, emergency service workers will not come....
