    With all the craziness in the world right now, I want to ask, how are YOU doing? It's time for us to come together because together there is nothing we cannot face. Are you doing okay? Are you anxious? Frustrated? Angry? Let's truly talk to each other. Ya wanna know why? It really is gonna be okay.

    Initially, I was simply a bit concerned but I was cautiously optimistic. Yesterday though, I realized it was going into ANY store that was increasing my anxiety. The expressions on the older folks and young mama's faces as they searched for what they need was breaking my heart. The "shellshocked" faces seeing the empty aisles triggered my first actual fear.
    It doesn't matter if it is a REAL fear. It matters that some of us are feeling it. How do I resolve that? I stop feeding the fear, by staying away from it all. I may not have everything that I WANT but I do have everything that I NEED.

    I'm not fearful, exactly. I'd say that I'm more unsettled. It was disturbing to see empty shelves in the supermarket for the first time in my life. I'm stressed because two of my daughters aren't local (which I don't like at the best of times) and I'm limited in my ability to help them if they need it. But I'm coping. Oddly enough, it was the Amazon announcement that they're changing up their operations that bothered me the most.

    Feeling fine. I am concerned for the older people they may suffer from the virus more than others. Not one that lives in fear of anything. We tend to be the type that act. Effects on daily life for this house hold are not many .
    School is shut down so Payton is here all day for at least the next month.
    You can't get a cup of coffee at Kwik trip by just walking in the door. Many are gas only.I know the stores are shot on some items, but nothing we need really.
    Lot of the political games of it are causing financial worry for many. Open door for the socialist to gain ground . We are not letting that bother us .

    Here at Fort Chiefster, we are good. We have what we need and I have prepped as much as possible. I am fearful of the political games being played and the huge financial disaster that is about to hit a great many Americans. I’m afraid it will take a long time for our country to recover. And some make take advantage of that in ways that will hurt freedom loving people. And finally the frosting on the cake; the shit the Chinese are pulling. As of today, the wife and I are cutting back on watching so much of this non-stop MSM hype. I’m in “coronavirus overload”.

    First confirmed case has now been reported in our county.

    Got a text from my mother asking if I had any shotgun shells for her shotgun. She seemed surprised when I told her I had her shotgun as well, haha.
    She said she has ammo for their handgun, but none for the shotty. I told her the ol' Winchester 1300 with 28" barrel wasn't a sufficient choice for home defense, and recommended a new model. She scoffed.
    She's never shot either of their guns, but thinks she'll know how to use them under stress. Oh... she won't keep them loaded either.
    Yeah... she's one of those.

    She wouldn't even own a gun until she moved out to "the country" where she feared snakes. Her solution? Bird gun?? Bless her heart.
    Then, for reasons unknown to me, they decided they wanted a 9mm handgun. My father has fired it during one or two range trips... 6-8 years ago.

    Lord help us all.

    In the US last 12 months 60,000 deaths from drug over doses . Where is the action and outrage from that.

    Last time I checked, it was pretty easy to avoid dying of a drug overdose.

    Yup, and my elderly parents can’t catch a deadly case of drug overdose from drug addict.
