I think we will bounce back rather quickly - companies will re-hire, folks will need stuff.

From the looks of things, Trump should be re-elected, his approval numbers are very good in spite of the media.

My wife did grocery shopping yesterday and commented that more and more items have purchase limits on them. Our area has been very lucky so far, but the behavior demonstrated recently by local 20-somethings, indicates we could have a problem. The young think social distancing is a joke and have no appreciation of the fact that 100 years ago in the last big pandemic the Spanish flu, there was no discrimination in age when people died.

This is why we have quantities of food staples put back in long-term storage, right..?

The popcorn I microwaved last saturday while watching netflix, is bulk samís club popcorn that I repacked into mylar-lined buckets with O2 absorbers back in 2012. The oatmeal I make some days at work is from #10 cans of commercially packed stuff bought from Honeyville Farms for $2 per can when they were on special several years ago. Probably 12-15 good breakfasts, that take nothing more than hot water (and ideally a little salt & sugar) to prepare, for around 15 cents per meal; and even packaged such that theyíll probably outlast me even with no refrigeration or special requirements..? Iíll take that deal any day.

Rice, pasta, beans, lentils, corn, wheat, tvp, dehydrated vegetables, etc, can all be had cheap in good times, and last a long time with zero maintenance if packaged well. But just like a savings account, we have to before the storm arrives.

I wonder how Melvin's preps are going? At the moment we are starting to whittle down the food that we have in our 2 freezers, just in case this whole thing goes sideways.

Yes, we're using the freezer stuff first although food in our area is not a problem yet. Nothing is in short supply. Ammunition is plentiful around here also. A lot of gun's being bought by first time buyer's. I'm of two minds about that.

I figure he's updating his list of long pig recipes and stocking up on BBQ sauce.

That's why I posted the Hannibal the Cannibal picture.

Nothing is in short supply here either at this moment, just not sure where we will be 3 months from now. I live in a small city, there was a run on ammo about 9 days ago here. Almost everything sold out. I've just finished my reloading for the next match season so it really didn't bother me.
