What will you do if the apocalypse hits?

I am curious of what would people do if the apocalypse is upon us.
Scenario:
You survived, your familiy mostly survived (Eg close relatives and some cousins). You chose where you are either at your old home(assuming you moved out) or in the place you moved out.
You can choose scenarios for how it happened:
A)Virus
B)Meteor hits earth
C)Nuclear winter

A)
Since it is a small town it might be a lower risk of infections and thus I can react quickly.
For me if I was at home it would be easy, I'd go collect as much food as I could around town, and barricade my whole street, create a fortress and build farms inside of it.
Other than that, acquire more guns lol.

B)
After it hit Id figure out how to make some underground homes in case another one hits, and with it underground farming using electricity as the main source of power. Since I live near a dam it should be easy to get it.

C)
I'd probably die in this one.

Interesting question.

How do you see the Apocalypse?

Because there are many different scenario's, depending on what happenend.

If an asteroid hits earth, I would say that's an apocalypse.

If half the world gets flooded, that's some sort of an apocalypse.

If there is a massive outburst from the sun that wipes out most of the power grid is an apocalypse.

So, which type of apocalypse are we talking about in your scenario?

Added choices but you can go ahead and make one up for yourself :D

If you make an underground home after it hit, you might be too late, because maybe it hits you.

You would need some advance warning and even so, if you are in an area where the asteroid is going to hit, I doubt whether an underground home would save you? The only option in that case is that if you have enough warning, you could maybe get away.

To be safe in that sort of situation I would park a plane next to my house so I could fly off when it gets dangerous,

A plain but what plain would be enough tho? If the asteroid is too big would you be able to fly half around the world with it?

If you had a 24 hour warning than any plane, however small would put enough distance between you and the place where the asteroid would hit. With a small plane you will have to refuel a few times, but apart from that no problem.

A small plane like on the picture, a Cessna 172, has a cruising speed of 122 knots (140 miles), so after 10 or 15 hours of flying I think you would be fairly safe.

I don't have any survivor skills, unless you count watching Man vs. Wild lol. But seriously, most scenarios I would probably die, and it would probably be early on too.

You might surprise yourself. When you are in real danger, there is some sort of survival mechanism that kicks into gear.
It's not a conscious decission, it happens automatically and it can possibly safe your life.

That's different though from prepping for some unforeseen scenario. I don't do that either, because then you can spend your whole day contemplating possible disasters.

I believe the universe takes care of you and you won't leave this planet until it is your time.
