On a cold October 20th morning of 2015, a man gathered all his belongings, and crammed as much of these earthly possessions possible in an ordinary Chevy Impala. His mission was simple. Leave. That's what everyone else was trying to do. Getting nowhere fast. The highways jammed up. This slowly dawned on him. He could not simply ride this one out. There was no passable route. Those people on the highways had already started to abandon their cars. Trucks swerved lazily in the road, parked sideways. Those who toughed it out more or less had to give up eventually. Being stuck in gridlock, the roadways became littered and useless. There had been accidents in the road with no available health responders. This only all started yesterday morning.
You couldn't go anywhere without seeing it on TV yesterday. A financial collapse. Trillions of dollars traded overnight. The Chinese Yuan had teamed with the Russian currency system. America bowed. A deal was arranged. The UN suggested a new global currency was all that was God, and suddenly, everyone in America with $100 now had about $5.00 in new world currency trade.
It had become the talk of the town. There was talk of grocery stores shutting down. No food. No clean water.
He abandoned the Impala. He headed for the mountains on foot. Something else troubled him. The weather was bad. Really bad. That's the reason the roads were so terrible he supposed.
He would feel better getting to elevated ground. Taking only a small backpack full of essentials, he made his way up the road. He was thankful these were not flat lands. Places to escape are always useful. He dreaded the worst. They spoke of two things ad nauseam on the television; The death of the American dollar, and climate chaos. Another hurricane had began shortly after Hurricane Joaquin had gone out to sea. These stirring pot of whirlwind forces do something never seen before on meteorology record. They combined, sweeping themselves closer and closer towards each other, both now strong category five winds met at full force and sent tidal waves, causing beach erosion, and major earthquakes along a previously undiscovered fault line. The Atlantic was spilling into big cities.
