You won’t have much choice, it’s going to be everywhere by the end of April.
That’s my estimate of about how long this Corona virus is going to take to explode across the country.
It’s already pretty much everywhere but in fairly low numbers at the moment.
There has literally been almost no effort to quarantine it with any seriousness, infected motherfuckers have already been running around willynilly all over the entire fucking world, literally.
The American public has taken notice and the panic is juuuuuust starting to set in.
Stores everywhere are being bought completely out of things like bottled water, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, dust masks, rubbing alcohol, bleach and anything even remotely considered a cold and flu medication.
A great deal of my preps literally went straight to the dump last year.
I’m pretty sure every canned good I had out in the garage got frozen at some point.
The Wifely Unit has given me shit about my preps from day one anyway.
“We won’t eat that”.
The fuck you won’t dearie. If you get hungry enough you will be damn happy to eat it.
So out the shit went, most of it was well past it’s Best By date anyway, even though that don’t really mean shit. I went and got some Freeze Dried stuff and put it away. She seems to think that it’s the best thing to do.
I am 100% sure she has never tried to live off of a Freeze Dried food only diet.
As a matter of fact, I would bet serious money that she has never eaten two freeze dried meals in a row in her entire life, if any at all.
I can tell you from experience, it gets old in a hurry.
It’s bland as hell for one thing if you don’t help it along.
So after all of these years of me trying to get her to buy and store extra food, make sure we have enough for two weeks minimum, have extra toilet paper and all of it, I am waiting for her to go do her weekly shopping next Tuesday.
I am waiting for her to come home with fear in her eyes when reality slaps her upside the head and she finds the only fucking store she will shop at has a bunch of empty shelves.
I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to hear it either.
Some people you just can’t teach and have to find things out the hard way on their own.
My boss was telling us yesterday that he went to the local Costco to get the candy bars and shit he puts in the vending machine in the break room. he said he knows the guy that runs it and was talking to him after he went through and saw that there was no bottled water and no toilet paper on the shelves. This guy said that on a normal weekend, that they will sell anywhere from 3 to 6 pallets of toilet paper. This last weekend they sold 16.
All they had on hand and all they could get trucked in.
That oughtta tell ya something there.
So now I am going to be trying to get my shit together and see about some alternative sources for some things.
Nothing like diving right into the middle of the herd, right?
Cowabunga dudes. It’s gonna be Tubular.
There is a slight difference between me and the average fucking moron out there though.
For one thing this isn’t anything new to me, for another, there are those alternative sources I mentioned above and finally, I can be one creative motherfucker when I gotta be.
I do have some shit stashed still, just nothing like I had before the Big Purge.
So now I am going to be busy building it back up, in hurry mode.
I don’t see anything good coming down the pike anytime soon and have a bad feeling that when this Corona virus finally hits in a big way that there are going to be some drastic measures taken by the Idiots In Charge.
Their M.O. is stall and deny until it’s too late and then over react to ridiculous levels when they can no longer sit on their hands.
If people are already clearing shelves now, just wait a month.
