People stock up on what’s important

With that said, we decided non perishable food was worth stocking up on. When you think about it, if you don’t have food toilet paper is not needed.

The CDC recommends three weeks of supplies

You posted an emoji with three question marks above its head. My question is very clear.

Home Depot has toilet papers but they are twice as expensive as the ones from Costco. It depends on how desperately you want it.

I always have at least a two month supply of everything. If you have a garage it's easy.

However, when we lived on Kauai Island, and a hurricane was heading our way, and there were Hurricane warinings, we all too that very seriously, and would stock up on emergency supplies.

It was interesting to see, shoppers at the LIHUE COSTCO, with baskets filled with T.P, and cartons of bottled water and then baskets rolling along with food items. No problems, and Lihue, COSTCO did not run out of those products, that we were aware of.

The island learned after INIKI made a direct hit and demolished the island, buildings, shops, hotels. trees, electrical and telephone poles, and to this day, some areas have not been rebuilt. we took all warnings seriously and prepared with more than just shopping for T.P Brought in patio furniture, tape windows, etc.

In the 10 years that we lived here, at Banyan Harbor, just across from Kalapaki Beach and the Lihue Marriot and Nawilwili harbor, many Hurricanes were down graded, or went north or south of us. Wind and rain, and some flooding, but nothing like INIKI.......she was was supposed to stay south, and as she was about to pass Kauai, INIKI did a sharp 90 degree right hand turn, and Force Five winds and accompanying seas make a direct hit on the island. It was horrific.

As to the coronavirus, we are not stocking up, as incidents here in Orange County are very, very, very few. But, if there is an actual outbreak and we need to protect ourselves, we will do what is necessary. Right now, we are going to follow the published procedures, and be alert, use situational awareness, wash our hands, stand clear of people coughing into their elbows especially when out and about, which is frequent.

And as per normal procedure, if we get sick from anything, which is very infrequent, we stay home , and take care of ourselves and do not go out and infect others with colds, flu, Virus' etc.

Otherise, we will continue to live our happy and active lives here in south county....

Yeserday, we worked out, and then when hiking Crystal Cove, the No Dogs Rail, down the Poles Trial, and then the
Canyon Trail back to the ranger station, and then our rewards. Drove up to Corona Del Mar to Tommy Bahama's for Erica to use her 25% discount card in ladies wear, and I snugged into the bar, then we both had lunch.

Today , thrs, we are off to hike a short Nature Trail at Caspers Wildlife Park and then BBQ some steaks, and enjoy the peacfulness of no one else being around.

See why we love Orange County.

Denny and Erica

I would not go to Costco...esp on a Sunday

But now? You likely will not even find a parking space...they are out of TP, water, etc

Other stores are ok

I live in OC too

I didn’t think you knew how to use the three sea shells.

Costco people are already hoarders that can't fit their cars in the garage because they keep a 3 - 6 month supply of pickles, pretzels, frozen chicken, beef jerkey, water, and paper towels..... and while half the pretzels might get thrown out stale before one can eat all 1,600 calories in the tub, they were SUCH A DEAL per gallon. It isn't surprising at all that the Costco crowd would be the first to do a toilet paper run with a virus outbreak, while other stores are operating as normal. Certainly a unique cohort of people versus the general population.

Why are paper towels not sold out? I'm not clear on the warning to stock up on cleaning supplies.
