    night

    everything in California is a knee jerk reaction....people ruin California then get sick of what they created and
    then they migrate to Colorado, Idaho, and other states and ruin those.

    night , don't understand it still, Costco website now in stock, limiting 2 packs per member,

    here, on long island NY, the supermarkets are advertising sales on toilet paper, they are pushing it. Aisles still full, I guess they were ready for this. Lysol and Clorox wipes/products still iffy, but supplies come in every day.

    Not sure what clean asses have to do with a virus that mainly attacks respiratory system. Media has tremendous control on people everywhere. I think they should try to convince the world there is a shortage on sardines, Id like to see 1000s of people rushing in to buy out sardines.

    I walked thru Red Rock today....and while the stock has lost some 60% of its value in 12 days, the place was fairly crowded. Sports book had a bunch. Slots and tables were busy enough. Not sure how busy or slow the strip is....but I’m really not seeing any “hunker down” mentality.

    NCAA tourney just announced to play in empty arenas. Jeez....what a let down on the excitement meter. Empty arenas? For March Madness? Wow.

    I believe they have their own well. As far as solar....some homes there do have solar.

    Here’s a 2 acre site with only a 40 year old airstream....$635,000. It’s a bit rustic, but the land back there doesn’t come cheap.

    Just as well you are up there in Wisconsin. I reckon Californians don't much like the cold.

    I think people don't want to have to go without toilet paper if they are forced to stay indoors. They won't lose out as they will eventually use that toilet paper.

    We also went by way of limits per customer and that's where we stand. Some stores have them behind the counter and you have to ask. They do this to avoid stampedes. Eventually demand will subside and supply will catch up and no one will be buying toilet paper for a while but I suppose that is dependent on how long it takes for medical science to get on top of this virus. It will definitely get worse before it starts to get better.

    It's scary to think how humans will behave towards people who even sneeze in public. It is going to bring out the worst mankind I fear.

    I saw a few people looking over their shoulders today with derision as a sneeze happened close by.

    Uncharted territory. NBA canceled. NCAA essentially minimized. No travel from Europe. My thinking is Trump will eventually shut down all travel to the US.

    Not sure how much is hysteria vs. good judgement. Tough to discern, frankly.

    I actually mucked that up. Everclear is grain alcohol or ethanol. Wood grain ,methanol, can make you go blind but many alcoholics will drink it., both disinfect.

    I keep telling this to my kids. Both think it is being over blown but are waking up. Grand baby, 5 has a recital today. Wish they would cancel it. I'm staying home. Wife is going. By end of the day many more should be woke especially with some doing such stupid things. I have only 120 rolls of TP. If I use two a week it's a years supply. Neighbor calls me a pepper. He's right. Ol Boy Scout Motto prevails. Going out today and buying more dry goods, canned goods and beef for the freezer.. Going to make a loaf of bread today.
    Will not watch the news. Makes my throat dry. really weird. I just went thru a Zpac antibiotic last week so I feel really good. It is affecting everyone psychologically to some extent. Many are in panic mode. Sister in-law got distracted watching news and forgot her pan of grease on the stove.. Burned the microwave and fucked her her new Kitchen. Still she is lucky she had a Extinguisher on hand. Be Prepared. Pay attention.
