This is the second in a series of stand-alone interconnected Short Stories for Preppers Series. The survivors of a nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that has devastated the electrical grid are trying to cope in a darkened world as society collapses. It's the morning of day seven in this post-apocalyptic world and from the news on the radio it appears WWIII has already begun.
How long until the batteries in the radios and flashlights fail? How long until a light in the night or the sound of a generator running signals not hope and coping but a target for the desperate and unprepared? Join the prepared preppers as they try to 'bug in' and hide from a world about to be going mad. Can they hold on to their sanity and food preparations in this dystopia? Will their preps be sufficient? Welcome to their world.
