EMP Packaging?

Apologies in advance if this was missed in my search... OK. I am of a mind that war w China, Russia, Iran, etc. is imminent and I believe there's a good chance of a Pearl Harbor type EMP attack on our grid in November. I think our fellow Americans will starve, freeze, and kill each other off. That said, I've been looking at several solutions; 1. the big ammo crate w/ a foam lining as to keep devices from making contact w/ metal. Can I just seal it off with metal tape?

This was the first many viewers had seen of the legacy of that unprecedented act of destruction, and now, six decades later, the cultural image of Hiroshima has conflated Resnais' stark Fr...

Posted: 8/3/20 | August 3rd, 2020 I didn’t know much about Oahu before I visited. Everyone told me it was worth it for Pearl Harbor but to spend the rest of my time elsewhere in Hawaii.
