Already happening in Venezuela. People in the streets fighting to the death over dog carcasses for their stew pot. The people who promised everybody "free shit" 17 years ago are living it up in their compound, knowing the commoners would kill them if they could get to them.

300 people stranded on the freeway, looking to sue the city.

Several dead people pulled out of their cars when the plow came through the next morning. Apparently they were shoveling out the cars when they had heart attacks and sat down for the last time.

No power loss this time, that happened 2 weeks ago during an ice storm. Gas heat, no electric required for that. Inverter and golf cart batteries can run my house for a couple of days, after that I'd have to use the propane generator. Longest outage so far has been 1.5 days, so well within my battery capacity. No signs of any warming soon, forecast is showing single digits and below-zero wind chills for at least the next week.

I've found the day after a snowstorm to be highly productive. Roads should be mostly clear and parking lots plowed. A foot of snow in a bin is more than enough to foil lazy top-browsing divers. You have to jump on top and throw it all on the ground, then start tunneling into the depths of the bin if you expect to find anything. Too much competition, it's been over a year since I've seen anything worthwhile "right on top".
I didn't do a "day after" run this time, as I was racing home to beat the storm. I got over 3 feet, it is armpit deep in some areas of my yard. Just spent a full 2 hours digging the car out of an 8 X 12 foot parking space.

If you smell a mixture of patchouli and pot smoke, deadbolt the door and raise the drawbridge quick. That means the liberals are coming for you.

~30 inches on the way:

I'm ready with my shovel....always funny to see news footage of the city slickers getting clobbered.  :)

So I went to the trouble of making a fake facebook account, as it was the only way to keep track of the progress of the local fiber project. Local rednecks have repeatedly been shooting and vandalizing their equipment, and making death threats. Now facebook took down their page:

For what I don't know.....giving a non-PC reply to a death threat?  No way to figure out what's going on in the minds of brain-dead liberal censors....

The company keeps control of the printer, would likely cost several million dollars if you wanted to buy one. They would truck it to your site, build, and take it away when finished. Hard to tell if the nozzle is spraying concrete, epoxy, or a variety of things. Durability of the house is likely pretty good, I'm sure engineering diagrams are on file somewhere.

The $73 thief is a small time loser, hopefully will be in lockup for a while for the assault. More efficient to steal a $90k truckload like the guys in the first link. And the cops let them walk away without bail/on their own recognizance. Good chance they'll never show up for court.
Here's another 100K diaper heist. Cops are clueless about this one:
