Now What........?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Since we appear to be living in a world that no one understands now, it is hard to imagine what tomorrow will bring. Perhaps there will be more of the same, or who knows things could change. There is panic in my area. People are shopping like the end of the world has come. The grocery people are unable to order sufficient product to replace what has been bought. I have decided to wait another week to replenish what I need. I don't expect to live forever and I certainly have enough in my home to sustain me for another month if need be. If not........I could certainly afford to lose 10 or even 20 pounds. Silver linings..........

We cancel large events to stop the spread of the virus and every store is packed around here.  It seems kind of ironic.  I am with you, though.  I could afford to lose 10 to 20 lbs.

Sheila,

And this too shall pass!  We have 55 markets in town...And two of them handled all the crazies.  What we noticed at Trader Joe's is the incredible teamwork of the staff, no wait and they were restocking.  I walked for 5 items that no one was interested in, and was out in less than 5 minutes.  A

Hi Alexandra. I get that but we only have a couple of stores here. At the specialty place it is better. TY      Sheila

Hi Sheila- We have food in the freezer and a stocked pantry. I told Larry that he may have to ramp up the bread-making in case our family needs any!  When I was in our local grocery store yesterday they were restocking while people were shopping. They have changed their schedule of now to allow them time to restock. 

This will pass and perhaps we will learn how important it is to wash our hands and all the others things we've been taught to do.

Hi Kathy. In my view the only possible redemptive thing that could come from this is people seeing that elections matter. TY    Sheila

Sheila Anderson My ridiculous "bright side"? All my emergency rations - things here are a little more dire, wholesale involuntary quarantine doesn't seem outside the realm of the possible - remind me, fondly, of my college days. Boxed mac & cheese, ramen noodles. All ya need is water and a pot, keep it as simple as possible. Lauren

Morning Sheila.

It's crazy around my area also.  Empty shelves, in all of my 70 years, I've never seen anything like it

Makes me think I need to go down to the basement and find my son's MREs that he brought back from Iraq so many years ago - we might not be happy with what we have to eat but we won't starve

Silver linings. LOL

People have either lost their minds or they just don't take it seriously enough. It seems to be mostly one extreme or the other. WTF

Things keep shifting every day, Sheila. It's so weird to go grocery shopping and find so many common products gone and aisles of empty shelves - something I have never experienced before. As least the lines were more normal where I have been today - tha panic buying and massive lines seemed to have happened a couple of days ago. It's certainly all very unsettling!
