Signs of a pandemic...

More than 3 weeks later, there are no paper products on the shelves at Walmart.

The 24 hour Walmart has restricted hours now. 7am 8pm. I got there at 7:am and they had corded off the entrance with markings every 6 feet. Maybe 50 people inside. Half of the shoppers were wearing masks, including some with handkerchiefs and one guy with a bathroom towel wrapped around his face (he probably had the best protection) and this time there were a limited selection of meats.

Displays of fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs all looked like normal. It was the paper products aisle that was empty.

I did see one woman with a package of toilet paper so there must have been some stock that got scooped up in 15 minutes of the store opening!

Was in Walmart this morning and sitting inside the entrance door was what appeared to be a truck load of toilet paper and no one buying. But try looking for eggs and mushrooms?? Good luck. Other stores had vegetable and fruit sections empty and that was during the preferred hours for seniors. In my mind we are months away from being free of this virus though of course the orange headed jerk insists it will be a few weeks. The best thing that could happen is the virus catching big time so he would shut the hell up.

Things will get worse. Expect food and supply shortages.
