Day 1.
Cashmere, Washington State 2:30am.

Off the coast of Washington just out side the break water;a large highly advanced airplane crashes into the ocean it is marked with a Russian flag and call signs. The Coast Guard responds as well as the navy. There are some survivors but they are badly injured and rushed to Seatle hospitals to receive aid. The Russian government is contacted.

9:00AM

The sun of Washington dances off the rivers and lakes. The little forested kingdom comes to life with the day to day lives of people and animals. The news reports of a plane crash off the coast. They report it as a Russian cargo ship coming from LA harbor. It was making its way to Moscow.

The day to day of Cashmere(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cashmere,_Washington) bustles and bristles with life. However there are some differences today. Cops are everywhere. emergency services seem to be out and about more then usual.

"EERUP, EERUP" the Tell tale sound of the Emergency alert system comes across all tvs, radios and internet radios. All cell phones light up with emergency alert texts and calls. This message plays across all media.

"This is the Emergency Alert system. Washington state has been placed on lock down. No air, water, or auto traffic is allowed to leave or come in. Marshal Law has been instituted. There is now a 8pm curfew in place. Obey any all law enforcement or military forces. Failure to cooperate will result in imprisonment and/or fines. This is a major medical emergency. All citizens of Washington are encouraged to stay in doors as much as possible. If anyone sees anything out of the ordinary besides what you have just been told, alert any military or law enforcement nearest to you. This is the emergency alert system."

With that the Washington National guard starts to roll out every where. Marines and army as well are deployed all over the state. It is now not possible to go anywhere where military or police can not be seen. There is a bit of panic and unrest but no one is getting hurt and people are responding well.

Battle ships and destroyers can be seen off the coast. In every major harbor a battleship is placed with a destroyer blocking entrance and exit to the harbors. It is also safe to assume that submarines from Kitsap Naval Base are in place as well. Helicopters and fighter jets are on constant patrol around the skys.

Something is wrong, really wrong.

(You two do not need to know each other but I am gonna put you guys in the same place.) You are both at Walmart. Greg's kids are present with him. Walmart is currently in massive overload. You can not buy anything at Walmart. It is actually been over taken by the military is distributing supplies based on family size. Right after the alert was sent another was sent ordering all civilians to go to a Walmart and receive emergency provisions. There are also medical tents where you must go through to get to Walmart. Everyone's blood is tested. Tests are ran and then people who passed are given a green card and allowed through. As you are allowed through a marine tells you all. "Do not loose that card."

I'm going to make sure Victor is very clear on that point (about not losing his card). Then I tell Alice "If we get separated I'll get the supplies, you just take Victor back to the car and wait for me."

I want to try and see what the supply chain is here. All just stuff from Walmart or military tucking stuff in etc. Also how many people are here?

Luckly Cashmere is a roughly small city. It is more of a Tourist area then not. Most of the tourists left. They are going back home. The lock down however will not let them leave the state. There is roughly 200 people currently at this walmart. There are more coming in.

The supplies you receive are standard medical and first kits, Food that will last, Several MRE's and basic care equipment. Nothing that would be to out of the ordinary. Since you have two dependents you are given a little more. *There are several people out and about arguing and yelling. The Military are stepping in.* The supplies seem to be a mix of regular Walmart fare and military surplus. There are some tvs around and you can see news reports of all major high ways in and out are blocked. you can see some people trying to get in and out of the state through back roads and trails. One reporter is on the Washington/Idaho boarder where the Idaho national guard is paroling the boarder.

F-22s flew over head.

I'm going to see about going to the pharmacy and getting extra Focusyn (or whatever) for Victor.

EDIT: Also, an extra pair of reading glasses.

As Greg and Trent are about to leave. A man being tested at the entrance, a red flag and alert signal is fired off when he is tested.

All military at the entrance point their guns at him. He does not look healthy. He looks really sick. His skin is pale, His eyes are sucken in, it is like he can not see or hear anyone. He just keeps repeating "cold, cold, cold"

Greg is moving to the medical line where he can get the medicine he needs as well possibly some extra reading glasses. He hears some hot shot young kid mouth off and he hears the man repeating the word cold.

they both look at him. He continues to ignore them. He is sweating really bad, yet he continues to say he is cold. He is jittering and shaking. Greg notices there is a bite mark on his arm. It is black and oozing a black goo.

The man flops to the ground. he starts to convulse and grind his teeth. They snap off but he continues to flay around. The soldiers take a well placed shot to his head. He stops moving.

The crowd roars in fear. They start to get as far away from the corpse as possible. Men in yellow sealed suits swarm the corpse. They bag up the body and shuffle it off to a makeshift lab near by. The top of the domes can be seen a half a block away.

A leer jet flies over head. Several F-22s are chasing it. They are shooting at it. The jet tries to out maneuver the fighter jets but it was not built for that. one of the fighters fires a missile at the jet. A blast of heat hits the crowd as they are in dismay. The jet slams down in a grocery store. It did not look like there was anyone there but no one is for sure. Several Marine Humvees swarm the grocery store.

Trent yells,"Dude!" when the Soldiers blast the man in the head and hoots and hollers when the leer jet is shot down,"Dude that was intense! These dudes are serious". He lingers for a bit watching what the soldiers do trying to get a closer look at the body. He is bumping into people and shoving them aside to move closer to the dead body.
