    How is everybodys stores hooding up? We went to town n the store we mainly use had lots of empty shelves. Potatos were plenty inbulk and for good reason.limit 2 ,yes 2 potatos.very few snack cakes and bread but as we left the bakery truck came in. No toilet paper,eggs n cat litter,dog n cat food short supply.
    We got a 2 pack hand sanitizer wipes.was a woman getting stuff same as us not grabbing 2 of everything.as we went to leave she opened her wipes n gave us 1 apiece n thanked us for not panic buying. Nice lady.
    Tuesday walmart has a senior citizen day,must be 60 n up.
    Be there at 6 am shop till 7 am old people only.time to use my age to my advantage.
    IF THOSE SNOFLAKES WOULD QUIT HOARDING THE SHORTAGE WOULD STOP. GROW UP PUNKS.

    Is a government authorized by its founding documents to have the power to restrict movement?
    Cancel elections?

    Nope

    Yup, I think you’re most likely right. I openly say that even though I’ll most likely be ridiculed and poked fun at, oh well. The stores here are exactly as you have pictured and my question is why?

    I’m prepared though, need a hat?

    Stores are same here in Delaware. The senior hours are great except the places need to do delivery too. Grocery store delivery is a normal thing in most other countries. Not here for some reason. I am only 48 so I don't qualify and that's ok. My 83 year old father was telling me about the senior hour. It still exposes him to other seniors, so I told him that he needs to stay home and if they need anything that I would be the runner. I am already potentially exposed when I go to work. The product we make is classified as a medical device, and sales are up because of the hoarding. We are just as busy as ever but now on a skeleton crew. Now starting Monday, the guard will be taking everyone's temperature before they even get into the building. We haven't even seen the beginning of this yet.....

    My wife takes care of her mother full time just a few houses down the street. My wife and our daughter along with my step son have moved in down the street and I as they attempt to isolate themselves. I stay at my house by myself, and am their link to the outside world. We use the video phone feature to have dinner together. Just like we did when I was working in Montréal. I told them this is just like being out of town, but closer. Haha. I am their runner too so I have grocery / supply lists going for those two households plus myself. I try to stagger the purchases so it doesn't look like I am hoarding, but I can't always do that.

    I found one of the best ways to buy stuff is WallMart grocery.com. you buy the stuff you need online from your local store and schedule a time to go pick it up. You let them know you are on your way and park in the pickup area. They bring it out to you and this limits your exposure to other people.

    About the same here , but recently TP has been showing up . Meats are slack , Thankfully I have 3 Deer between myself & my Hunting & Fishing Buddy . Only Wife & I here , same w/ him . I was stocked on other meats pretty well , have 4 Corn Beefs in freezer , making Pastrami in the smoker w/ one .:D Most stores have set limits on things . Gun store lines are lined up around buildings , thankfully bought a few jugs of different powder a few weeks back , all set here , plenty of lead & brass also , if needed I might have to break down & make some bullets , have all needed to do that also & plenty of lead ingots . Yesterday our Bitch of a Governor signed an " Executive Order " to change Gun Back Ground checks from 1 week to 1 Month ! :whistle: Doesn't effect me or my wife , both have CCP , walk in walk out . I'd go buy another gun but don't want to piss people off waiting in line .:whistle: Besides you should see some of the Crappy AR's they are trying to sell ! Wall was loaded w/ beat up rental range guns , most :censored: brands & they want Big $ for them ! Price gouging Arse Holes ! But a lot of us on here have been preparing for this for years . Who's the " Red Neck Pepper Dummy Now ? " :LOL: 73 & God Bless , Leo

    It's bad here in Tampa. Most stores are empty of anything useful. Went to BJ's wholesale club today and there were limits on milk, eggs, butter and water. Why water I dont have a fucking clue.
    Why stores didnt set limits over a week ago amazes me. Now we have a mess. Not that im short on food because im always prepared but normal people who didnt panic are now fucked.
