    I don’t believe it will get bad here in Boston. I am not worrying. Only thing I worry about is getting my damn toilet paper haha. Just normal stuff in general I buy every so weeks and now I can’t even get cleaning spray. Oh lord let this pass quickly

    Default Did you prepare ? Coronavirus ? Pugs ?

    When I posted this a few days ago we still had plenty of items on store shelves .... now not so much .
    I actually am good and well prepared .
    I never mentioned after I have things set for my fur boys I went to Liquor Barn and made sure I got good supply of wine just in case of quarantine?
    My nephew was supposed to come from Germany I was so excited .... scrap that I guess no people from EU for next 30 days . That is my biggest disappointment.
    I will try to cancel tickets for activities we already bought .
    So far none in AL but soon enough it will be .
    They might close the college ? What you think ?
    I have to be prepared to get my son from College and he needs to be occupied if he comes here. He has no friends here since we had moved and he went straight to college.
    I had already announced a while back at work that I do not deliver flowers once I think it is not safe ( safe what ever that means) . There are people getting “Get well “ arrangements what you think ?
    Anyhow I actually quit my job Tuesday long story and I might post separate about it if you want to hear .

    This is my prep update .

    Ok folks. I think we are going to "need" each other in the next 20 days more than ever.

    Tough times are coming (for the US and other areas - obviously some have already been "hit").

    I love you all for your caring and sharing and encouragement.

    We fly home to Texas tomorrow and I’m not going to lie I’m a little concerned, in fact haven’t slept much tonight. I am ready though and will be “that person” who will be wearing gloves on the plane, bringing my Clorox wipes and wiping my whole area including the seatbelt, then removing my gloves and sanitizing my area with my vent blowing straight down on me in my little bubble. If I hear coughing or sneezing you can bet I will be pulling out my mask. I mostly have gone about my normal routine the last couple weeks, but just the thought of being in a small space with the potential for exposure is really pushing my germophobic buttons Fingers and paws crossed.

    At first to be honest I laughed thinking people are going overboard but after having cnn on I began to take it seriously. The shelves here are bare. The Massachusett school superintendents are all getting together for meetings. All school field trips have been canceled. Jack and I were planning on surprising kids to universal in April for a few days since flights so cheap. I hope it gets better then but who knows

    Yes carry extra soap to wash your hands .
    You will be fine .
    I believe we all will be exposed to it sooner or later . It’s just the thought of being like Italy with empty streets is annoying to me .

    Things have changed so much in just a few days. We're now facing the same empty shelves that others were seeing last week. Yesterday my boss went to buy Purell at our local Dollar General and they had none. The only other stores in our tiny town are a hardware, gas station and pharmacy - and they had nothing. She asked me to look this weekend when I go grocery shopping.
    I am signed up for a Craft Show for my jewelry on Saturday in a nearby city and I'm starting to wonder if people will show at all. It's usually a very big festival and the craft show is particularly well attended, but I wouldn't be surprised if vendors don't show and shoppers stay home.
    Then on Sunday we were planning to go to a Home Show event to talk to builders and suppliers and I'm wondering if it will be cancelled or still go on? It's at a college in a nearby city, but all the colleges here in Michigan are now talking about doing online-only classes and cancelling in-person events or classes.
    I'm still not panicked about this when it comes to me and my family, but I am starting to wonder about things like "if this goes on for 3-6 months, how will this affect supplies or costs for our new home?"

    Yeah I do see this taking a toll on small businesses for sure and really affecting those that can’t afford to self isolate if needed. I’m not sure what I’ll be able to find when I get home but I have a decent stock of necessary items just because of being prepared for storms and stuff at both the house and ranch. We live in a University town and the students are gone for spring break and it sounds like it’ll only be on-line classes for awhile so that will dramatically affect the businesses in our area since the students account for a very high percentage of the local economy. I think pretty much all craft shows, home shows, sporting events and anything that draws crowds has been cancelled in much of the state.

    There are going to be reeling repercussions: financial, educational, psychological... for a range of ages, and in many regions of the world (and the US)... with varying success rates of providing services... This is not panic, just sort of "thinking it forward" - PAST all the immediate, self and imposed quarantining and "essential personnel" supporting and refreshing, and supply shortages for services (I am thinking healthcare, but I am sure there will be others)...

    Perhaps the myths and story-telling of old will revive - of saving Kal-El (superman) from the disintegrating Krypton, etc.

    The words of the WHO earlier this week were inspiring... I have them in my work satchel.

    “The rule of the game is: never give up.”
    ...
    “We are not at the mercy of this virus,” said the WHO Director-General at the 9 March media briefing.
    All countries must aim to stop transmission and prevent the spread of COVID-19, whether they face no cases, sporadic cases, clusters or community transmission.

    “Let hope be the antidote to fear.
    Let solidarity be the antidote to blame.
    Let our shared humanity be the antidote to our shared threat."
