My theme is suspense and fiction.

Beginning; My characters will be situated in a rural area in montana US, they are enjoying a meal together while watching tv when suddenly the tv is interrupted by an emergency message from the country and it says that there is a solar flare coming to Earth in 8 minutes and of intensity never observed before. This intensity of charged particles will destroy most electronics on earth including satellites, cell phones, cell phone towers, generators and cars etc. This catastrophic event will leave civilization to a stop and people will now have to prepare to live without the help of the government. Moments after the message the tv fries as the lights go off and the water stops running. They are now on their own.
