I live out in the middle of nowhere 20+ miles from the nearest human, so the extremity of the of the following isn’t exaggerated:
Just a couple of months? No problem. I’ve got an 80’s era set of encyclopedias that would keep me busy for probably several months. If I’m still allowed to use my computer locally well there’s plenty of offline stuff to use.
More than a couple of months though, that’s a big problem.
All of my sources of income would be gone. Market would be crashing so all my investments would be blown up too and no way to get out of them. I’d have to get a job, and a brick-and-mortar one at that. Better hope the car works to get to that job, because there’s no way to get parts for it now. And no way to do research for how to fix the thing because sometimes Haynes/Chiltons books just don’t do it.
I wouldn’t be able to order groceries from Amazon and thus would be limited to that which is growing on my land, or whatever I can tote back from the nearest town assuming the car is still functional at all. Hope there’s a way to order more seeds next year. I think directory assistance would make a fortune during all this.
Basically, my life as I know it would be over.
I hear they make this thing called a phone which would alleviate some (but not all) of the issues. I may have to get me one if the worst ever happens.
