This is what I see around me here in Vancouverstan.
Let me know what you have got going on in your area in the comments. Since it’s an open thread, nothing is Off Topic so let it rip.
Here in Vancouverstan, behind enemy lines next to Greater Portlandistan, things have been …. interesting….for over a year now. Had to go into a Wally World on the East side of town a couple weeks ago after having a couple of teeth pulled to get a prescription filled. While I was waiting I went back to the sporting goods section to poke around. ZERO guns. FOUR boxes of ammo TOTAL. All off caliber. The Wifely Unit shops at another Wally World, there are 3 within ten miles of each other around here. Bottled water low, cat litter and cat food both low. Peanut butter scarce. Some frozen food shelves empty. In the last year I have managed to find packaged yeast ONE TIME. She can’t find Bar S cured hot dogs, period. All their hot dogs are uncured. Fresh vegetables always seem to have limited quantities. They did have a decent selection of Auguson Farms freeze dried long term foods, the Sheeple don’t even know what that stuff is. Gas is up to $3.60 a gallon. They are putting up apartment buildings on every square inch of available real estate and I am not even kidding. Tearing down entire neighborhoods to do it. Housing prices around here can only be described as INSANE. Same for renting. $1300 a month for a studio apartment, if you can find one. Local cop got shot and killed the other day. Gang Banger. You would think Vancouver to be a sleepy little town but it is just across the river from Portland and now we are basically part of Portland except we are in a different state. The gangs have come across and we even have our very own chapter of ANTIFA that has been running up and down the I-5 Freeway clear to Seattle and raising hell in all the small towns close to the freeway in between since last Summer. You don’t hear about that because the news won’t report it. Back channel comms is the only reason I know. This is already a good place to be from and not to be in. I’m stuck here because of the wife and family. It sucks.
