      That would suck alright. I wonder if that would delay the NYSP letter concerning the Safe act

        The worst thing about being on LI is you can't get off. Going to have to "commandeer" a boat...

            Assuming you are not in the blast radius and avoid the heat flash you just have to last a week or so protected from fallout. It's a lot more survivable than many people think. Potassium iodide pills to protect the thyroid glands, and get as much mass over your head as you can, do what you can to avoid dust, then sit tight for about a week. The half life of most fallout is relatively short.

            Most people's issue would be running out of water/food and sanitation issues during that week, especially since most people don't have a weeks worth of supplies (and the government only suggests three days anyway) on hand.

              Unbelievably I think the Patriot Act allows the government to seize your food stores in time of emergency. Is anyone 100% on this?

                Depending on the blast radius, I think my family would be ok, but we are on Long Island. If I lived in the mountains I think our chances would be much better.

                  I must confess that I enjoy having a mountain range between me and NYC. And there ain't shit worth nuking in the Poconos.
