    Wife was at our local Walmart this morning and got the next to last big thing of TP. Shelves were running low or empty of certain things, like ramen noodles.

    Last week's grocery shopping was the exact same as every other week. Then there were 2 confirmed cases of c-19. This week the things that are now consistently sold out are tp, 10kg+ bags of white flour, powdered milk and hand sanitizer. Everything else is pretty normal.

    I work in a big food distribution warehouse. As employees we are now no longer allowed to purchase rice or water from the warehouse, both of which are still readily available at every grocery store.

    Raise the limits.

    Exactly - We already have a supply of water on hand and I prefer bulk storage anyway.
    For the current crisis, I don't anticipate water supplies being cut off so why all the panic water buying?

    The answer is in your question. People are panic buying rather than using their heads, analyzing the situation, and buying what they're actually going to need.

    I saw my dentist at Walmart yesterday. He was loading up on cleaning supplies for his office. I asked him if he could still get masks and he told me his last order was cut in half but at least he did get some of his order.

    You think the behavior is bad now? Wait until no supplies are around. The people that did nothing or have zero preps will freak out. It's not even that bad out right now. Only 2K cases-ish in the country? Great resource here: infection2020.com. I LOVE this COVID 19 resource.

    Wait until 20K or 200K cases... Good thing you went out today to get final stuff. That's what we're going to do today.

    That'll be in less than a week..or however soon this new Walmart drive-thru testing results are reported and made public.
