Practice shivering.

Among other things, make sure you have plenty of supplies to filter the air you breathe. Volcanic ash is essentially pulverized rock. Once that gets into your lungs, it pretty much turns into cement.

Other than that, treat it as any other permanent grid down scenario. Except we'll have utilities for a little while longer.

But, yeah, the big thing is gonna be food and water. Keep your house stocked and your stock hidden. Have a false store in your kitchen that you plan to never touch that way if someone breaks in to steal your shit, possibly at gunpoint, they'll find that and leave thinking that they found everything. It wouldn't hurt to bury a few caches as well.

I wouldn't rely on the fish. If acid rain becomes a thing in your area from the volcanic winter, then you might see a lot of dead ones wash up on shore.

A water powered generator powering a hydroponic system with a fish farm in the central reserves would work. The water wheel would supply more that enough power to power the pump, fans and lights.

If you are anywhere Yellowstone, there is nothing you can do. The Caldera is 35 miles wide by 50 miles long.

It will be a "nuclear winter" and statistically/geologically, it is past due.

WHen I say "near" - I mean within 1000 miles if it, which is a LARGE circle.

As far as long term, I was just thinking about this today which is funny that I saw your question.

The first thing that comes to mind is that solar is gone. You'd need to be able to get hooked up to geothermal or wind power pretty early on. I would look into the "vertical growing" systems they are building in skyscrapers. In Japan they are producting lettuce indoors, hydroponically, using LED lights in one of the most energy/water/nutrient efficient "Farms" which ever existed.

Most people will panic and do stupid things. I suggest taking advantage of those stupid people who also become dangerous, ending them, and taking their shit.

Find a thick woman and live off her body until the sun comes out.

My grandpa told me about driving north through the Mount Saint Helens eruption. They wrapped the air filter in toilet paper frequently to keep it from clogging. In the end, didn't seem like a huge deal.

Should Yellowstone be much worse?

I imagine I wouldn't be impacted at all being down in Texas.

You will get a good bit of ash It seems.

The toilet paper is a good idea though.

Be somewhere west of Yellowstone is my first instinct. Ash fallout will blow east due to earths rotation but itll be so large that its gonna send ash around the world multiple times anyways

The Yellowstone eruption is estimated to be somewhere around 1000x more powerful than Mt. St Helens'. There will be so much coming out of the volcano that it won't matter where in the continental US you are in, you're getting ash.
