Creepy empty streets..

I live in a suburb of Baltimore.

The streets are practically empty here. The Walmart near me was nearly empty, of people,besides having all the wipes and hand sanitizer gone,very little TP and paper towels. It's beginning to remind me of the videos of deserted streets in China.

5. because if people are quarantined at home even if not sick, they had better have

two + weeks' worth of everything. Many of us don't keep that amount of supplies on hand.

4. 1) the grocery store was out of TP, wipes, etc., but had a lot of canned goods; 2) I

decided to replace my old phone yesterday because I didn't want it to break at a time when the supply chain was totally disrupted. There were VERY few people in the Apple Store (I've never seen it that empty) and VERY few at the new ISP I went to after picking it up.

The grocery was also nearly out of bottled water and a lot of other stuff, but not fresh food.

I think a lot of people are staying home here (DC metro area) too.

7. I bought the last bag of dried beans at my local smiths today.

It was surreal. Especially in the toilet paper/paper goods aisle where shelves were empty and only the most expensive toilet paper remained. Stay safe everyone.

9. I'm wondering if all these people suddenly

buying dried beans know what to do with them. I mean, thatís the only way I buy beans but I also pressure cook them- easy peasy.

Itís just weird that there is a run on dried beans. Usually there are bags and bags of them on the shelves.

10. Exactly. It is very strange. They were low on rice as well

Which isnít that easy to make (we use a rice maker) and we got the last four containers of bone broth for my son that is on a special diet.
