I have declared a state of emergency and martial law, and moved the Congress and executive branch to a provisional government center in Jacksonville, Florida. Much of the rest of our country is covered with fifty or more feet of snow. "I have ordered the U.S. armed services to begin digging out our large cities, but I ask those of you in outlying areas to take heart and have courage. We will try to rescue you as soon as we can and return local and national services to normal, whenever possible. Until then, I ask you, please remain calm and conserve your resources. Help is on the way. I repeat, help is on the way.";"But what about us?" the girl screamed. "We're trapped here in the middle of nowhere.
