I believe there was such a discussion. It may even be in that thread. However, the ZS hive mind came to the conclusion that if you are in a situation and you are unsure if it is a PAW situation then you cannot be in a PAW.teotwaki wrote: ↑Thu Sep 06, 2018 4:39 pm
In that linked post I think there was comment about how people felt like they were in a PAW even though the rest of the country was actually just fine. Preppers/survivalists probably need a litmus test to decide they are truly in a PAW and not just a local disaster. Probably be a good thread to have on its own.
In short if there is any doubt, it is not a PAW.
