Yep I'd agree with that assessment. I'm still at level 1, prepared for a short term event whether it be natural or man made. I feel this is the most likely scenario for us and has happened here a few times already. Generally speaking our power is back on within 24hrs even with the big storms we got hit with it was out less than 48hrs. Not to say we couldn't see an event that lasts longer, I just don't have the room to store preps for that type of event nor the funds to put into it quite honestly. Basically I feel that in a longer term SHTF scenario skills will play a more vital role than stores. I do need to start considering a couple of small solar panels for charging phones and running small electrical devices.
