#1 Thanks, B, It's nice to see stories of sane people from time to time.

#2 Think I heard Dollar General is doing something similar, as shopping has replaced the NHL post-season.

#3 Our grocery store is out of sugar, flour, rice, beans, milk, eggs, potatoes, onions, carrots, ground beef, ramen today, in addition to the expected toilet paper etc. But they have beer & wine, so it's ok.

#4 /\ Same south of ATL, the hoarders holiday has nearly come to an end. Airplane noise has been substantially reduced.

#5 Mrs Fool went to Costo yesterday. There was a line _outside_ the doors as they were only allowing a certain (relativly few) people in the store at a time. To keep down on the crowds and, we believe, avoid being closed down by the King Governor Inslee (Wa) who closed down resturants and bars last week.

#6 Our store's online order pick up service is full until at least Friday (if they have stuff to sell you.)

#7 I have plenty of food, will just have to get creative in cooking. Lack of onions is going to hamper me. Low stock of beans, rice and potatoes will to, to a lesser degree. If I run out of protein I can go shoot a pig (or a copperhead...)

#8 Herbs, spices, and sauces everyone. Moral is important too.

The local weed store just announced delivery service, so we got the herb covered.

Protein is protein, but it sounds like there are still some hard feelings left over from the War Between the States.

#10 Hah, as well as The Herb covered.

I had heard the potpriators get getting ran on as well. Joked with the wife, "Watch them spend a goodly chunk of their money on buzz, and forget to have food for the munchies."

#11 Taters. Best bang for the buck.
Saved the European working class from starvation again and again.
