And he's usually right about these things [Apocalypse Blues]

When John went to bed everything was fine. When he woke up, it was not. The sky choked on thick, black clouds of oily smoke. The air hung heavy with the stench of burning flesh. Fires raged throughout the city, their guttering light clawing at the jutting skeletons of half-destroyed skyscrapers.

He made his way gingerly downstairs to the kitchen. He took a bowl and filled it with cereal. He opened the fridge door and reached for the milk, then stopped. The jug was empty. No milk.

Suddenly, he could tell. Today was not going to be a good day.
