I'm part of Post A Day 2016

I always wondered what it would be like when the eventual and inevitable Zombie Apocalypse hit. I am sure you all understand where I am coming from, and may have thought about it too. You know, the day when everything stops, life changes, and not necessarily for the good.

Thursday 21st September 10:28am

Whilst in a store just queued up ready to pay for winter coats, sweatshirts and some tee shirts the store lights went out. M and I looked at each other, I raised my eyebrows and said “uh oh!”, M nodded slowly in agreement. My first thought as I realised everything electrical was dead was “This is it, this is the end, this is the Zombie Apocalypse”.  After a few minutes of all standing about a worried looking male worker came rushing over to everyone and announced that we all had to evacuate the store.

I turned around and realised that we were sort of stuck as M is disabled, he cannot use the stairs, and the escalators and elevators were obviously not working.

I told M to call his brother and see if the power was out where he lived. He called, and he relayed that indeed the power was out there too, but he wasn’t at home, but miles further away again. The atmosphere was eerie and other people milling about were reporting to the group that everyone they called confirmed the same. I checked social media to see if a zombie apocalypse was happening or the Korean nutter Kim and gone to war with the other nut job Trump, so far, nothing was being reported, but no useful information was coming through either.

After about 15 minutes, we decided to take our chances. I drove through the town looking about, and indeed near everywhere was in darkness apart from the banks who have backup generators. The streets seemed to be lined with people on their phones looking for information or calling people, and I suggested again to M and his Dad of my zombie apocalypse theory as we headed away.

It was a very strange moment in time, and although the zombies were not to be seen, and after a few hours life in the town returned to normal and power was restored, I wondered if other people thought the same as me and if this really was the end, what would we have done. I know one thing though, I would have wanted to be back in my own country with M and the dogs, oh, and a full store of canned goods and bottled water.

  1. 😂 at the thought of a zombie apocalypse…I didn’t even have a clue such stuff was going around! That’s how out of the loop I’ve been. I had my own power outage odyssey in the wake of Irma and it certainly can be a bit scary when the power suddenly goes out.

  2. I agree about being at home with the pets and a fully stocked pantry. Since we are headed towards winter I probably should start stocking extra canned and paper goods just in case. Snowstorm or zombies will require extras.
