Ok, there was another thread going where post SHTF a family of refugees shows up at your gate peacfuly seeking help and refuge and what would you do. Nearly all indicated the resposnes would range from a meal and medical help if needed then send them on their way to shoot them on the spot. So, here's my twist on it. Instead of this being some total strangers running from the cities its a family of locals. There has been no real 'pact' or whatever that you all are in any way joined but they were reasonably prepared and had been getting by. Your group and theirs have done a bit of tradeing and maybe have given each other a hand from time to time, basicly like 'old time' neighbors. Pick the reason they are displaced, chimney fire burned the place to the ground, tornado wiped their place off the planet, etc. They have very little they were able to salvage and they arent your bestest friends for life, just decent neighbors that you get along with and know who hit harder times durring already hard times. Now just for the sake of argument we will say that they had kept their preps VERY quiet before hand and thus the reason you may not have known about them before hand. They show up at your gate needing a place to stay, at least long enouph to rebuild and a simple had UP to get back on their feet. How do you respond? Any difference from the other senario?
