I'm not feeling it personally. I do everything post Covid that I did pre Covid. Some of the more stupid directions from the powers on 'high' I simply ignore and I'm sure you do as well.
as do we here - but in the broad sense, raven is 110% correct. there are a great many people terrified and cowering before a media hyped beast - one with questionable teeth for anything beyond economies and personal ability to not only come and go as you please but to work and recreate as you typically would. I would unhesitatingly call that a significant loss of liberty

TP is back, disinfectants are not. I'm selling duck eggs pretty well, perhaps due to egg shortages at the store. Rice is back, beans are spotty. Canned soups are scarce. Our dog and cat food via chewy was initially delayed, but now on track.

a lot of this shortage is regional. I read someone cant find something, but somone somewhere else has lots of it. Well except TP. Ive been buying when I can get it. SAMs in my area rarely had Dark red kidney beans, dry or canned, but for a couple of weeks they had several pallets, I got 6 cases of 6 cans, 3 different times, so 18 cases, last time I went, they didnt have any at all.

Ive found many times they have something they dont usually carry. it will last a couple of weeks, then none again for a year or more,

53. Canning lids. I placed an order with Lehman's over a month ago. They still don't have them in stock. The local Smith's has them for over $3.50 per dozen, but I really don't want to pay that much if I don't have to. FTR, I already have the lids for this year's canning. I just don't like running low.

Are these things that ARE hard to find in THIS crisis, or a general list? Because many of the things listed after the initial post I havent seen any shortage of here in the NYC are.

perhaps they are things that could become scarce, since so much is made in china.

This list has almost nothing in common with the "100 things to disappear first" in a crisis list that's posted all over the 'net.

However, I do wonder about what real life experience is like in other parts of the country. Chicks were sold out everywhere around here last month. I don't know if they are still hard to get. My Smith's had flour, but only 25-lb bags, which they've never carried before, and from a mill that I'd never heard of. TP was sparse and limited to one package. Paper towels were nonexistent.

My daughters lost their thermometer for their animals and wanted my husband's digital one. He about had a heart attack right then and there. I wanted to replace it with a glass thermometer from Germany, like one I had ordered before. There was nothing of the sort available on Amazon.

My stepmother couldn't find elastic or TP.

Rice, beans, ramen, and pasta supplies are pretty sparse in both grocery stores I hit on Monday. I wasn't buying those--just looking.
