Tomorrow I am going to the store to see how the shelves are doing. I'm told there is already a run on paper towels, bathroom tissue, and cleansers/sanitizers.
Sugar is for sweet tea and moonshine. Their as important as fuel for a southerner.I live in Arkansas. We don't have any cases of the covid19. Went shopping yesterday (Walmart) to supplement my pantry. They were restocking some toilet paper, but the shelves were slim. The stocker said that they couldn't order more because our main warehouse in Searcy was out and would not be getting any more. They were also completely out of bleach and sugar (haven't quite figured that out). Other than that, everything was pretty much stocked up.
After listening to some experts I trust, I'm not so sure it is. I believe we are just at the beginning of this thing, not the mid-way point or end.This was a good excuse to resupply my ladder, but so far I've only got paper goods. Foodstuff is still well stocked.
And anyway, this is going to blow over in a couple months. People are just being paranoid.
