    I bought two 3M rubber masks that take the bayonet mount disc filters with 4 spare N100 filters. Got them about a year ago for mowing, etc. I guess they'll work for Covid19 as well.

    I'm curtailing my attendance at radio and blacksmith meetings, may stop going to church for a month or two. My wife is 72 and diabetic, and I cannot risk bringing the bug home to her.

    I am surprised by the level of panic and panic buying I am seeing here.

    The Mrs. & I are pretty much staying home. I do need to go to town for cat food today, which will be the first time that I've been to town in about a week.

    I did go to the very small, local hardware store earlier this week, where I saw these kids at the "New Mexico beach".

    They are actually in the middle of the mighty Rio Grande riverbed. From about September through late May, the Bureau of Reclamation closes off the outflow from Elephant Butte Reservoir, which is about 100 miles north of me.

    Well they have talked our little corner of the world into panicking too, we have zero reported cases, no cases in any of the surrounding counties but the sheep have emptied the Walmart of every single roll of toilet paper.....toilet paper. Still plenty of water, food, even most OTC medicines but not a square of toilet paper, I'll never understand the sheeple mentality.

    Stopped at Hardee's for lunch today, they have removed all the napkin dispensers, straw dispensers, salt and pepper shakers and the self service drink station. Ironically when I picked up my order and handed him back the order number tent he stuck it right back in the pile and the cashier handed it to the next guest she rang up.....

    While I understand your point, don't forget that most of those folks would normally be lucky to have 6 rolls of tp at their house under "normal" circumstances. So although they may be overbuying, it's their first foray into the world of prepping. They've been told to expect to have to stay home, and they're not sure how long it will last. Oh yeah, and they're scared.

    And if there's one or more females in the household, triple the estimated TP use.
