I came across a book I read, One Second After (I wonder if this is a reference to the TV movie The Day After) wherein terrorists airburst a nuke above the 48 states. It results in destroying the power grid across the country, and all non hardened electronics are fried. In addition to the obvious, cars, boats, ships, trains, all utilities (yes, even gas and water) no longer work. This resulted in the deaths of upwards of a hundred million.
How would you survive? Do you have skills you think might help.
Just musin' tonight.

Go as far north as I can , raid the supermarket for water filters , energy bars , grab a knife , head to the gas station , fill up my spare jerry cans , and then I'll head north , I know of a few first nation settlement , or some rural villages.
The cities are blackholes , they are never designed to be self-sufficient. It'll be a centre of anarchy and crime.
The villages up north , they've got fresh water wells , , next to the sea for easy fishing , fields for farming , livestocks , game to hunt , plenty of firewood and guns for protection.
If the powergrid goes out , going north is the only option.1
