I am curious about how things are in your corner of the internet. This is a sincere request. I do not trust the media and I genuinely want to know how people are doing. What is the current situation like where you are?
To clarify, when I say I do not trust the media I am not a conspiracy type. I do not believe what is being reported is accurate. Everyday life seems a lot different from what the media says.
Except for the doom and gloom and shutdowns, things in my neck of the woods are relatively normal. The run on groceries I think hit its peak on the weekend. I say this for a few reasons. For those that went out and bought a few months worth of groceries they will not be doing that again right away. If you buy a bunch of groceries you have to have someplace to put them. You would likely run out of freezer space and storage space quickly after a repeat visit to the store. Also I think the scare factor will wear off soon.
Stores here were close to stripped. Toilet paper is making a comeback with restrictions on the amount you can purchase. A Canadian internet buy/sell site is banning any ads for those posting sales for toilet paper and disinfectant wipes. I think it is reprehensible for people to profit off situations like this. I stopped at a local grocery store yesterday to pick up a few things and the store was reasonably well stocked. Meat was in short supply, no coffee cream, and no toilet paper. There was enough of everything else. I might lose weight during this time.
A lot of schools are closed. Gas prices took a sharp drop which might be a good thing.
I am doing okay for now. I go to work, like most people. I just go home after work simply because I that is what I regularly do. I refuse to listen to news on television or the radio while this is going on. I would go somewhere on the weekend however a lot of hotels are shutting down.
Most people I talk to do not see anything in day to day life that warrants a crisis of this magnitude. So far there are four deaths in British Columbia and one in Ontario. Anyway, I would like to know how things are where you are.
