I saw that early this morning. My oldest lives in Pasadena, but he's well-stocked (spent $400 at the liquor store a couple weeks ago LOL) to ride it out for at least awhile.

Coming soon to a state near you!

I actually am moving all my work stuff to my house to start working from home. A preemptive move if you will.

I've been under the order for a week since Newsom declared it for all Bay Area counties. Hoopefully by the end of April we will get the all-clear. Though it may last into summer I've heard Andrey. :veryconfused:

CT is in virtual shutdown. Not completely - But the order will come soon, no doubt. My home county is now completely surrounded. Rhode Island to the east is COVID positive and all other counties in CT. I can't imagine that we'll be COVID free for much longer... though we are less densely populated.

Freezers full: check

That's the b*tch of it, isn't it? All this free time and nothing but clouds. :x (I'm binge watching "The Borgias" on NF.)

Yes its becoming a global problem but storing food etc is a very selfish and bad thing lots of people cant afford to shops for many months and it causes crap with the supply chain, just dont do it, you are adding to the problem

Some stores here are limiting the quantities of things like hand sanitizer, diapers, milk, disinfectants that you can buy. AFAIK, there are no restrictions on beer or Spam.

I saw a news story earlier that Walmart was planning on hiring up to 120.000 to help deal with warehousing/ processing/ deliveries
and I believe other large distributors are looking at the same.

As with anything, things will get figured out as time goes on. I figure just go with the flow and do your best to keep safe.

Just remember to keep smiling and try to fight off the anger.

Great point that has me stocking up on can goods. It is best to be optimistic, but one must also prepare/prep for the worst. What if the virus mutates into something worst?

Well, the best way to make this much worse than it needs to be is to start panicking. :|
