The RULE of 10'S

So I have been reading this week questions on how prepared people are for emergencies. Everything from a simple power outage, to a pandemic, to a full blown Zombie apocalypse. To measure my level of prep I use the Rule of 10s. Example: If you would lose power and not be able to leave the house due to quarantine. Will you be OK in:

10 minutes - computers crash, clocks blinking

10 hours - freezers begin to thaw

10 days - store shelves are empty

10 weeks - riots, looting, population migrations

10 months - organized criminal ransacking

10 seasons - starvation and ammo worth more than gold

10 years - new civilization begins to formalize

-- How ready are you?
