@egrogan - thanks for the advice to do the order out... looks like a couple of the small mom and pop restaurants in my small town are doing the orders to go, good way to keep supporting them during this time, I'm sure it's not easy on them having to close the dining room. I guess it didn't occur to me that they could have a back up plan!

@aubie - I would wear the gloves... my bother who is over in Taiwan is worried about me over here, keeps emailing me asking how I am.... I guess he's seeing all the chaos and they are showing how bad it is here over there. He offered to fed ex me masks as they have masks over there. And that's huge as doing fed ex from/to there is pricey!! Any way better to be safe than sorry.

I went grocery shopping Monday. I avoided shopping in the big town as I talked to my UPS delivery guy, he said it was disastrous.
I went to our little store and got most everything I needed as it had been a couple weeks since I've shopped. No hoarding on my part, just enough to get us through another week or two. The only thing completely gone out was the TP, rice, pasta, flour and potatoes. I live in ID and there is not a potato to be found!
Problem is people from other towns and states are coming and wiping us out locally.
I actually do need TP, the gal at the Dollar Store leaned over the counter and whispered like we were doing a drug deal, "we are getting a shipment on Thursday night".
I feel as though all common sense got thrown out the window in this situation. There is a difference between erring on the side of caution and preparedness and panicking. Oye.

A lot of the horse shows are canceled or postponed through the next month. On the bright side it gives us more time to train and practice!

I have been see all day today articles about how there is plenty of food and the supply lines etc. How much is true vs. trying to control the hoarding I don't know.

A local pizza place here, which can now only do take out, is offering a free roll of toilet paper with every to go order! They just got a huge supply delivery for the restaurant, but since their rather large dining room and bar is closed for probably a month (or longer?) they decided to pass it on to their customers. Thought that was cute.
