Virginia Gilmore leads a seemingly ordinary life for a fast-food worker. She wakes up at noon, showers, dresses and heads to her job as a night shift manager at the Wendy's in Clarkesville every Sunday through Friday.
Two years ago, Clarkesville resident Mark Watson faced his own death. It didn't come in the form of a near-death experience or a trip to the hospital, but in the form of a letter from his doctor that said if Watson didn't get his diabetes under control, he would live no more than another five to 10 years.
National Geographic's reality TV show "Doomsday Preppers" depicts people obsessed with the end of the world and spend a lot of money and time preparing for it. Bomb shelters, years worth of food stores, hidden caches of weapons and armored vehicles make regular appearances on the show.
