Wow! That explains why people have been saying to me "If I already had connections in northern New England, I'd be there in a heartbeat. I don't know why you'd want to stay here." Maybe this is the best financial time for my parents to sell their house like they've been talking about doing for years.

Before they do, they need to have a solid plan where they will keep their money. I don't want to be alarmist, but economy-wise this is uncharted territory. A hint - banks only appear to be solid from the outside - there isn't a single bank in the world which can survive a run on the bank. Also, my favorite quote of all time "If investment advisers knew where to invest, they would be investing - not selling advice" (paraphrasing)

@Horsef Right. Absolutely right. Also in my country banks gamble big time with our savings. I think you would faint if you knew what things they do and what risks they take.



Luckily I scarcely have any money. I just started to rent (everyone told me I was crazy to do so in this crisis but hey, what's life without a little risk taking and I needed a place of my own.). I took an insurance against fire and it automatically covers 10 000. Lots of ppl told me that is not alot for all your stuff but luckily I also don't have alot of stuff. Also I am not that materialistic although I love al my furniture (that I bought from other ppl and that is all design and vintage) I have alot of clothes and books... But ya know. What am I going to do? Stop the crisis on my own? Life is brutal and life is uncertain, that is the only thing we can be certain of. Maybe in a couple of years I'll be dirt poor. Or maybe I'll be able to buy my own place. Who knows. :)



Also alot of people are suddenly buying a house or renting... I guess ppl want their money invested in something solid. I have only enough money to buy a bike, lol. haha

The problem will be when the people from the population centers decide that they want what they left behind . Cow poo smells. horse poo smells , you need to control the manure so flies don't get out of control we need modern shopping centers close by. etc. etc. Like another person here had problems with horse pooping on the county road and people putting up signs to pick up after your horse.

Or moving in and deciding they need to kill off all of the wild life so they can have the farm life that they then rid themselves of because they weren't prepared for the poop and the flies and did I mention the poop....

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

A major hurricane... That is what we are missing... And I sure hope we don't get one. Trying to evacuate is not fun in the best of times.
