This always bothered me.
So the dust finally settles and your glad your still alive, so the first thing you do is phone your family and friends to see if their ok. No signal. OK i'll drive to the Kingdom hell to find out what to do. Driving past all the dead bodies you realise your almost out of petrol, stop at the garage cannot get fuel as there is no power.

Youve finally managed to get as much food and water as you need to your home (youve not even thought of moving into the nice big house) and your into survival mode.

Your sat in your garden drinking a warm beer, surveying the death and all of a sudden you see a bright light in the distance and wonder is it a sign from god (in fact is a nuclear power station going into melt down and exploding.
Fires have now started to take hold in your town, but theres no one to put them out. The stores that contain all the food and goods you would need to survive are burning. The fire then reaches a chemical factory at the edge of your town, theres a blinding flash and.................................
