If Yellowstone erupts not much is going to matter any longer.

There are several super volcanoes that would end things as we know them.

The blast zone will be massive. Much of the 48 contiguous states states would be buried in ash. It will disrupt weather patterns on a global scale. But in the end, I am sure that life will endure, and continue on, as will the planet itself.

Modern life as we know it will end.

I have LED's and I can't replace bad lights. I can in the old flashlights. I can in my "shake to light" flash light. I've had it 7-8 years now..

Bottled water gets stale after a long time. Mine did after about 6 months of storage. I have a porta potty in basement too. . .

Just not a lot of it if it goes into a 'nuclear winter'. I think I'd not worry too much about hiding out from the ash, not on this continent...

One thing for sure, all these things which are 'due any day' are due in geological time. Could be tomorrow, could be a century. Keep supplies and remember to enjoy the people you know... we have no off switch.
